    The raw oyster selection is great. The lobster roll was tasty & the crab dip app is really a must have!

    Great seafood spot for a drink or a nice dinner. Oysters were big and flavorful (dozen for $14), grilled bass with homemade gnocchi was incredible ($12).

    Amazing Oysters. Balsamic vinaigrette dressing is really strong on the salad so use it sparingly. Service was amazing. The gnocchi and seared scallops excellent

    I may have something to learn here but their definition of seafood gumbo is different than mine... Brothy and no seafood! I mentioned this and they brought more of the same. That said broth was great

    Good food, great drinks, and fun bartenders. I defiantly recommend the upstairs area for a more intimate atmosphere.

    Waited 30 minutes on a Sunday night and left 10 minutes after being told "I'm about to seat you" (after me asking how much longer). Plenty of tables available.

    Wasabi sauce on the tuna taco is such overkill that it ruins the dish. Avoid if you have taste buds!

    The tuna salad and fish tacos are both amazing. If you want good service at the bar cross your fingers and hope the short brunette is working, otherwise its a gamble.
