Came here because of Tripadvisor recommendation and were not disappointed. Four diners enjoyed oysters and fresh catch of the day. All were excellent. Friendly staff, neat building and delicious food and drinks, including the oyster martini.

The food, personnel and ambiance where wonderful. We opted for appetizers for dinner and that was plenty of food and wonderfully prepared. Everyone was very attentive to our needs.

I recommend getting a reservation when you want to go. We stopped one evening and there was a long wait, so we left. The next night we had a reservation and it was perfectly fine. The food was spectacular and the service was awesome. It made for a lovely anniversary dinner. I would go back anytime.

This place was amazing. We had to wait a little bit during dinner rush but it was worth it. The food was delicious. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. We had the crab cake fried green tomatoes which were amazing. We will definitely go back!

Ate here for the first time in January, and loved everything about that visit. Could hardly wait to go back. Second visit was equally as wonderful. We had friends meet us and their experience was equal to ours. You really don't need appetizers as you get very large portions and two sides with each entree. But we did it anyway.... More
