This was my first time eating oysters so I was a bit skeptical to try them. I have to say I was surprised at how wonderful they are. I had horseraddish and cocktail sauce on mine, perfect heat. Will return here for sure

Stopped for a drink and some raw oysters after a whale watch. Olga was our waitress and she was great! Highly recommend! Will go again if we go back there.

I had one of the best ice cream . I had blueberry. I had a small and I could hardly finish it. The place is small and always a line. But it goes fast and most people walk out with their cones. We say and enjoyed.

The smell from the wood grill was so... More
