My wife has issues with gluten and dairy but all we heard was "no problem". The delightful server, Bergy from Norway, made a great night with numerous suggestions of what they can do and then confirming with the chef. Surprised with a risotto that was...More

Came back for yet another year of buck-a-shuck between 3:00-5:00, and once again it was delicious! They charge $2.50 for the extra sauces (ponzu, vinaigrette, and cocktail sauce), which is new, but the quality of the oysters definitely stand up! The back patio is always...More

Recently went for a quiet meal on a week night. Seated promptly, lovely service and delicious food. We found a reasonably priced bottle of wine and water was refilled regularly. The bouillabaisse and the halibut were perfect - moist, good size portions & delicious! Tiramisu...More

3 of us had dinner. Salmon was reported to be great, I can say the steamed clams were superb. Wine by the glass very good (BC Chardonnay) very tasty. Service impeccable. Wish it was closer to my home so I could go back often.

Great food. Service has a little to be desired. Our server was not friendly at all. Very short even when asked a question about the menu but the food you can't beat!

While on vacation we stopped by to have a drink. The restaurant is very nice and the patio a great place to watch the inner workings of the Harbor. One of the drinks was a small bottle of beer in a glass with Bloody Mary...More

They serve octopus, clams and mussels, but did not see scallops. I believe that try to get all of their seafood locally sourced. Try the octopus, it looked wonderful!
