    Creamed corn is the best I've had, oysters were amazing and the lobster roll was so good. Can't say enough good things about this spot. Between the food and the friendly staff.

    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.

    Happy hour 3-6pm with $3 bottled craft beers, $3.50 rail drinks, $3 sliders, and $6 for 1/2 lb steamed spice shrimp. Gorgeous, scrumptious, friendly & fun! Be prepared to wait during summer!

    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.

    Great selection of oysters, from East & West coast locations. All the food is great and the staff works hard to make sure you're happy.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Staff is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Atmosphere is casual and fun. Oyster house lived up to its name with the salty oysters I love. Yum!

    Might be one of the best restaurants we've ever been in the US. The lobster rolls and the Hawaiian spearfish were just unbelievable!

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

    Stuffy atmosphere. Too busy to seat one person. Can't take oysters to go for 'health reasons'?

    Don't come here. If you do, it will make it that much harder for the rest of us to get a table.
