Sad to see this restaurant closed. The jambalaya and the barramundi were exceptional. Served the area for over 30 years. CHEERS !

We used to live in Evanston, and Davis Street was a favorite. A recent dinner was a disappointment as the food was just average. (The New England clam chowder, which should have been hearty and creamy, was watery and light on the clams) Not to...More

A fun and friendly place for a girls night out. Good food, great oysters. We ordered a variety of dishes and enjoyed them all. Only criticism - it closes too early!

We're here on average once a month or two. (Actually, when they have specials, like Buck a Shuck oysters, or Lobsterfest, we might go several times in a month.) Really fresh seafood, especially the raw bar. Seafood Cobb salad is wonderful; the small portion is...More

The food is great, really, you're welcomed in by a friendly host or hostess, but the service, yikes. This is a pretty expensive restaurant and our server didn't have a clue. Very young and inexperienced. Not the type of place where the server isn't paying...More
