    LOBSTER!! Also the bottleneck clams. Can't decide if their oysters and mussels just weren't good (compared to oyster boy) or if their clams are just amazing. But get the lobster.

    Oysters are well shucked and the chef makes genuinely good seafood (even the dessert creme brûlée was excellent), but this place suffers from bad management. Servers are friendly and do what they can.

    My first time at Pear Diver and this place is the best. They just served me a complimentary wine sample and some oysters. This place is the real deal

    Post 10pm Get a dozen oysters for $15. The broth for the mussels is a coconut Thai, and on point

    The oysters are great, but the freshwater bass tastes like a fish I caught on a canoe trip in Algonquin (aka, lake water)
