Oysters are fresh and tasty but overpriced at $5 / piece. Wine was very average. Won’t recommend the place.

Neat to the Ace Hotel is good for oyster lovers .
The also have a pre fix lunch menu that is very good.
Is all about seafood.
The haddock fritters with the curry dipping mayonnaise are very good.
The divers scallops with salad are ok.

Loved the oysters and the lobster roll (even though it was on the small side given the price). Highly recommended!

A couple months ago we came for a happy hour oysters. We were impressed by the menu (snails, trout...etc), but not the service.

I thought the food was good enough to give it another chance.
The menu changed (seasonal). We had a couple dozen oysters and I had the scallops.
It was an amazing dish...
The service was okay, bizarre to say the least. A really strange waiter with earlobe extenders was borderline creepy.

The hostess was extremely friendly on the phone and in person.

This is the place where I think I had the best vodka-martinis with fresh green olives ever!
Accompanied with some lovely oysters and laidback atmosphere it made the perfect start of a great evening.
