    Best oysters I've ever had in my life. So fresh and tasty. Go for the happy hour and enjoy your oysters for less. I also had a cocktail to match the oysters. Very good bartender.

    Oyster happy hour on weekdays until 4-7pm must be one of the best in town. Huge selection of fantastic oysters priced $1.25-1.50. Cocktails here are also great.

    I've been twice. Oysters are great but service is awful, people that work there don't know anything about their menu and are not able to help you. the white wine list is really small and not the best

    Adorable outdoor seating area and special cocktails. Be prepared for a long wait & reluctant service. Def go for the dollar oyster happy hour- otherwise, the meal is definitely on the pricey side.

    Clearly, this is the best date spot in town. The oyster selection is marvelous, and the vibe is swanky and confident. I skipped the absinthe drip, but the absinthe cocktails are wonderful.
