    Of course, it's a great place for raw Oysters - but I love them for lunch too. Scallops here are awesome too and love their homemade garlicky chips - but bring some gum for after!

    If you don't like oysters, try the corn on the cob. Superb. They put some sort of cheese on it (feta?) and seasonings and it was about the best corn-on-the-cob I've ever had. You get two pieces/order.

    If you don't know what kind of oysters to get, they'll prepare a tasting dish with different kinds. Go clockwise, going from good to great oysters! Also a big fan of the green beans as a side dish!
