Took my nephew, Kevin and his wife Madison for their first time. Everything was great. We especially like the charbroiled oysters and it was a first for Kevin. He agreed that these are the best.

Best chargrilled oysters anywhere, and I’ve had them plenty. Never had a bad meal here, business or pleasure- top notch restaurant.

The place looks great with the remodel. Food and service were excellent. I loved the Chargrilled Oysters and Raw. My wife had the Seafood pasta and loved it. Even my 2 year old was happy with his Shrimp kids meal.
