We were walk ins on a Friday night and there was not wait but they were pretty full. Our food and drinks were delicious and our waiter was funny and attentive. He made great menu suggestions too!

The wait person was great! And they were very attentive. The calamari was among the best we have ever had … not over cooked, tender and with a nice coating on it.

Oyster selection, and then clams. All excellent. Decent beer selection and there was a brisk cocktail business which was nice to see. I'd call it pricey. You easily spend $45/person here without getting exotic. Great atmosphere, great service.

Our favorite place to go for fresh, delicious seafood and top notch service. The baked oysters are to die for. Always love the fresh fish board, the servers are always happy to help with dietary restrictions and substitutions.

I ate here three times during my stay in the city and was quite satisfied. Service was friendly, professional and very efficient. And the food was always good. Of course the house specialties emphasize seafood.
