There are always a lot of people here, a place where locals convene. They have a great selection of oysters, but overall the atmosphere ranks higher than the food. I love the tables overlooking the cute little channel right at the harbor.

Located at the piers. They have a good bar with a full selection of choices. The oyster selection is good but a little pricey. Wonderful service and menu selections for table service or eat at the bar.
