    Cannot beat this place during Sunday oyster happy hour. Great variety of east & west coast oysters, all were really large (no skimping here). Love sitting at the bar & taking in the scene.

    The happy hour line starts at 3:30 (opens at 4) for $1 oysters. Try to get here as early as you can, especially for the much sought-after garden.

    Hands down the best oysters I've had in NY. They have a happy hour from 4-7 Monday-Friday on their entire oyster selection. People literally camp out a good 30 minutes before to get in.

    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

    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!
