Passing by my Mum and I decided to stop in for a drink. Ended up having lunch and several dozen oysters. We tried all the different oysters. Caesar salad was great, at room temperature and the dressing was home made. Would definitely return.

Enjoyed some great oysters. That's all we had. We tried several from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Canada. They were delicious and oh so fresh. Service was friendly. Very enjoyable.

We had brunch here and really enjoyed it. The food (including in particular the oysters) was good, and the service was great. The ambiance is nice / relaxed and we were glad we tried it.

The menu includes a variety of seafood dishes such as oysters, clams and shrimp in addition to an ever growing raw bar menu.
