    The oysters are yummy and shucked well, for the most part.

    I visit with my wife at least once a year. We'll split the Seafood highrise (a tower of shellfish delights) and finish up with the chocolate filled Beignets. Highly recommended.

    Oyster selection is the only reason to come here - best sea food in W.Hart. Everything else is mediocre, wine selection is poor

    If you're with a group of 7-8 people, definitely get the oyster hi-bar. Fresh and delicious! The flounder is soft and it's lemon zest flourishes the flavor. Honey and milk dessert- a special must try!

    Raw bar platters are a very good deal & the variety is excellent; although the platter for 4-6 has only one lobster tail & 4 shrimp. ( great for 3-4, but with more will need more food)
