    Big rock oysters are great. Everything I've tried on the menu is great. Wine is great. Cash only is straight up customer hostile though. You can afford 2% card fees with these prices.

    Their lobster roll is on the cheaper side, at just $18, but doesn't sacrifice any of the flavor or delight of your favorite seafood dish. Their French mousse dessert adds a surprisingly nice finish. Read more

    Oysters are trending this week and Littleneck has some of the best in the Big Apple. Make sure to catch the $1 oyster happy hour from 5-7 PM to go along with the $5 drafts.

    The steamers are incredibly fresh and come perfectly prepared. The lobster roll is tasty but a bit small for the price. And they always have a good rotation of seasonal Narragansett available.
