    The cocktails here are insane. The Snakebite is insane and their Moscow Mule is the best I've had anywhere and is served in a copper mug.

    Great for a start into the weekend. Great oyster selection and top notch cocktails. If you are not so much into oysters don't worry, the great staff guides you through.

    Walcott Express; This mint-infused cocktail doubles down on freshness with Sapin 55. Reining in this earthy foundation are tart overtones of lime cordial and the lush, lingering sweep of Germain-Robin Read more

    Walcott Express: With its opaque, vivid green hue, the Walcott Express doesn't just taste like spring — it looks like it.

    Really outstanding menu. I got the winter salad, warm scallops, and the lobster roll - all were great. Started with oysters and bread (I recommend the East Beach Blonde!) Try their stout too.

    Recommend seafood dish here. Duckhash wasn't that great. It was surprising that they play really old Korean songs, which I didn't notice at first because they blend so nicely into the atmosphere!

    It's an old school feel with proper mixologist in suspenders creating drinks with neat viles and tools. Most unique cocktail menu I've seen.

    It's a corner from New Orleans in Brooklyn. Absinthe cocktails and oysters are making a good couple, try to get there during the happy hour. Love this place.

    Oyster and un-ironic bartenders who take their craft seriously. You'd be shocked how delicious a pina colada can taste when it doesn't come out of a blender.

    Oysters and clams are great. Cocktails are also good, if a little precious in some cases. If you do eat here, avoid Brendan the server--he speaks far too quickly and comes off as smarmy.

    hard to get a seat but leave your number & find a drink somewhere else first. Then return for very knowledgeable bar tenders, expertly made cocktails, and delicious oysters, all in a relaxed setting.

    No line on Thursdays for the oyster happy hour. On Fridays, the line starts at 3ish. For vegetarians, the fresh bread plate is satisfying and worth the $4 for the butter alone.

    Beautiful decor indoors and great cocktails. Even more beautiful decor outdoors with a romantic patio garden. Love!
