Oysters were fresh and cold and tasty, Po Boy was the best I’ve had outside of New Orleans and the beer selection was great. We loved the outdoor patio and the great service too!

A friend brought me here claiming how great the place was. I like the atmosphere but did not think the food was exceptional, just average. Staff was friendly and prices per plate for entree s in the 18-25 dollar range. Portions were reasonable.
