We arrived just after 6 pm. The restaurant does not take reservations but if you wait (outside) or go have a drink somewhere else they will call you. Because we did not have a local phone number - one our group waited and we came back about 45 mins later and were the next in line. It is a very tiny place with open kitchen and casual bustling atmosphere
The restaurant is super busy and the service and food were excellent. We had fresh chilled Oysters and mac & cheese with lobster/crab. One of our group had a spicy fish stew. Everything was served hot and fresh.
By about 9pm the crowd had diminished quite a bit and it was possible to walk in and get a table.
