My wife and I go and sit at the bar, fun atmosphere, good strong martinis I'm told. I go for the half priced burger, my favorite in town, with great coleslaw. Say yes when they ask if you want bread and butter

Great Service. Excellent seafood. Great choice of oysters, both East and West Coast. Massachusetts, PEI, Maine Oysters are my favorites. Oyster shuckers are amazing, clean the shells very well and leave oyster liquor.
