    Nice place. Good lobster roll and shrimp po boy, though the remoulade should have had some spicier. Great beer list.

    Perfect post beach eats. Gorg interior & phenom service. Try the oyster sampler, old bay shrimp, lobster roll & a glass of Albariño or 1 of 50+ craft beers. Skip the lobster mac&cheese.

    Seriously amazing happy hour (3-6pm) - you can't beat $7-$8 for 1/2 dozen oysters, 1/2 pound of shrimp, 1lb of clams, etc. Plus 2.50 domestic bottles!

    Good oysters. Incredibly slow getting a dozen out though. Maybe we shouldn't have ordered the MA oysters? We have been told twice they would be up shortly.

    Red flag with the full craft brew kegs stored in the bathrooms. They have to be taken to where the tap lines are; I'm not cool with piss in my walk-in or keg box.

    Primarily East coast oysters rule the raw bar and selections change daily. Grab a few dozen @ Happy Hour from 3-5. Great microbrews from local Dogfish Head & more. Lobster mac 'n cheese is glorious.
