Oysters were great. Very tasty and fresh. My wife had the tuna sandwich and was also very fresh and filling. We visited at lunch so not so crowded.

I am a huge fan of the $1 oysters and tecate night on Thursdays. I have always been incredibly impressed with the selection of fresh seafood, especially in Cincinnati. Great spot for dates and even for larger groups!
