My husband and I are obsessed with this raw bar! We had to make another stop there before our trip home! Great beer selection from local breweries and the food is so fresh!

We had chowder, shrimps, and oysters. Food was super fresh, shrimps were firm and delicious, and chowder was excellent. We ordered seconds on the oysters. Recommend this place if you're ever in Salem.

Great staff and you must order the chowder fries. I ate in many seafood places while in Maine and this was the best restaurant I tried.

Went with a party of 6 around 12:30 and they were able to seat us right away inside with a corner table so views of the water on both sides. Food was great! We had the lobster rolls and a kids burger that was huge...More
