My daughter was treating me to lunch as a thank you for helping with my grandson. We had a lovely table overlooking the river. Our waitress seemed overly loud and in a hurry. We ordered drinks. The iced tea was delightful and served like a cocktail...fresh mint, lemon and pineapple. We ordered our lunches. The salads were very fresh and... More

The ONLY nice thing was the view. We went early, dressed nicely on a Tuesday evening. There was NO ONE in the place and they acted like we had 3 heads for not having a reservation??? I ordered fish and chips. It tasted like it was 3 days old and they had microwaved it to warm it up. Did I... More

We had a party of 10, which included 4 well behaved children. We were put in an area that was completely separate from the whole restaurant. Some of us had plenty of food for the money and others had 4 scallops for $32.00. Our wait staff was very good. Some good food and just ok. Two people would never order... More

Hosted a party of nine here on a Tuesday night. The view was lovely and the services was adequate and the clam chowder was tasty. We ordered dinner at 6 pm and sadly they were already out of several menu items. When our food did arrive the portions were unbelievably small. I think they must have been running low on... More

I took my husband there for his birthday. Pretty view out the window, peaceful. Some of the other tables were loud but for the most part it was nice.

In town 2 nights to visit elderly aunt, and had drinks, oysters, etc both nights in a booth in the bar. Absolutely everything was excellent: some of the best oysters we've had anywhere, well-made drinks, super service and a great playlist and vibe. This place could hold its own in any city in the US! We've had lunch nd dinner... More

We ate here a couple of times while we stayed in the area, by far our best dining experience while there. The food was good, wait staff was friendly and the menu offered many options. I ordered the French onion soup one night and BBQ southern style sandwich the other - both were great!

We got a good amount of food for the cost. The service was good. Our only complaint was the entree we really wanted was sold out very early in the nite.

Some of the best seafood flown in daily and prepared to perfection. I spent 10 days in the area for work and ate there 4 times. The Oysters Rockefeller is great, and I would highly recommend it.

Celebrated a Special occasion at this restaurant. -- We ordered the fried seafood platter (oysters, fish, shrimp) with the sweet scalloped potatoes which were nice for a change and to just to try them. The clam chowder was the best I've had (lots of clams). Good service - even a suprise piece of cake which tasted great. Made for a... More
