Happy hour offered great discounts on craft beer. Don’t bother with the sangria. Local favorites: duck fries (French fries, duck prosciutto / bacon, loads of gruyere cheese), duck tacos and, of course, the oysters. We tried and loved all!

My husband and I had dinner at this lovely restaurant. Excellent oysters, shrimp and interestingly prepared fish dishes. It is fine dining yet a relaxed atmosphere. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Excellent service.
