    Steamed oysters were under done and seemed too reliant on toppings.

    Everything is good. Get reservations. Some of the best and freshest seafood I have ever had. Oysters are fresh and God with a wide array of choices. Shrimp, scallops and tuna -amazing.

    The shrimp and grits are beyond good! They have a variety of raw baked and fried oysters for any level of oyster eater to enjoy.

    Great place for us over 40 people to go to grab a drink and be thrust back to the 80's! One of my favorite places in NC for a weekday drink!

    Raleigh's Best Seafood Restaurant. Seafood bisque is amazing. Crab and artichoke dip is outstanding. Oysters Rockefeller are off the hook (pardon the pun). And that's just appetizers. Great beers
