Great spot in an old garage.
Wonderful selection of fresh shellfish including shrimp and oysters, along with some the best fried chicken anywhere.
Great beer selection with a focus on local breweries, but Pilsner Urquell served in the proper glass was impressive and enjoyable.
Hand crafted cocktails were outstanding as well.
Not fancy, but excellent quality food and drink with good service make this a worthwhile and fun stop.

Such a cool place and vibe...it's a converted auto-repair shop gone restaurant. The pinup girl decor in the bathrooms was hilarious. The oysters and shrimp were amazing, the fried chicken succulent and the cocktails were inventive and delicious. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great spot outside of downtown.

The service here was excellent. They don't take reservations so we decided to turn up for an early dinner (5.30pm) and we're glad we did! There were only 2 free tables when we walked in and by the time we left there was a 1+ hour wait.

The food was great, particularly the shrimp roll which tasted very fresh. The fritters were just ok. And the service was great, very friendly wait staff.

Not sure why all my friends told me to head here two nights ago. This is a very simple place where they spent most of their time drumming up a comfort food, fried food menu with some free furniture found in the backwoods. People seem to love to stand in line- to wait for this fried food. To be nice, though, the staff is amazingly nice.

Tried to dine at Leon's. only a handful of people waiting but they quoted a 2 hour wait. Walked through and there were 4 empty tables inside and more than that outside. Guess they are trying to create an illusion of demand
