It's small but comfy. My friends and I sat at the bar. We had raw oysters, fried jalapeños, fries, calamari, bread and butter, and plenty of alcohol. The staff is nice, we ate, drank, and watched football. I would recommend this place for shellfish lovers.

The food here is always fantastic, fresh and reasonably priced for the quantity you get. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I always recommend trying the specials listed on the chalkboard!

What a great surprise! Tried this place out based on recommendations from friends and I honestly didn't have high expectations. We live on the coastal region of Hampton Roads and didn't expect a place in Ghent/Norfolk to pull off great seafood....but I was wrong! My...More

All 3 of us enjoyed everything we ordered, but especially the fresh crab meat. If you don't want to deal with shells, no problem! You can have it served in a ramikin! Friendly service and ok atmosphere. Prices are good for what you are getting!

I had a day to kill before returning home from a work trip, and this place had great reviews...I can see why. I asked the bartender which raw oysters she recommended, and the ones she recommended were delicious! I had some kind of seafood pasta,...More
