    We had to wait quite a while ( 40 mins ) for food , but eventually it was worth it . Oysters are so great you'd ask for more . Deserts are heavenly . And everything is fair priced .

    The Chilean sea bass and oysters were fantastic, but our waiter was extremely pushy with the specials to the point of being rude...it marred an otherwise lovely dining experience

    Truffled polenta was outrageously delicious & addictive. Soft shell crab salad was yummers as were the fresh oysters (East Coast!). Skip the Bloody Mary though as that was just disappointing.
