    Nice place! Had amuse bouche seaweed salad (amazing!) an oyster sampler( yummy), calamari (was ok) the kid dynamite fish. Good drinks. Baked Alaska is fun and yummy! (Overall I like Blue Point better)

    By far the WORLDS BEST Crabcake. Make sure you have one. PS..This restaurant was just sold to Landrys. The portions have dropped by 2 ounces per fish dish. Hurry and get the crabcake before they c

    By far the best dinner I've had in years. Service was great, atmosphere was perfect, and every course was amazing. Plus the waiter dropped some great knowledge on the dishes. They know their seafood

    If you like raw oysters (and you should), do yourself a favor and order a chef's choice assortment. The Paradise Island oysters are particularly wonderful. Light and creamy.

    Brussel sprouts and cream corn. NZ sea bass and the Butterfish dynamite style and it was also good choices. Special occasion go for the baked Alaska for pizazz.

    Ask for Ken..the waiter. He is EXCELLENT. Definitely try the crab cakes and the Key Lime pie. Appetizers ate huge but great to share with 3-4 people.

    Fantastic seafood albeit $$$. Service was good, fancy ambiance. Hashbrown is yum! And brussel sprouts side is so crispy!

    Ask for a booth for a more intimate dinner. Beautiful presentation of dishes and delicious as well. Special anniversary dessert is memorable.

    Get the crab cakes. They are incredible and have very little breading. Ahi tuna is also a great choice. Warning: the desserts are huge!

    Sit at the oyster bar on Sundays for $1 oysters (good for any oyster priced at $2.25 or less) ALL NIGHT.

    If you have late weekend reservations, temper your expectations. High likelihood that many of the popular items on the menu will be sold out.

    There is nothing special about dinner here. If you can swing happy hour (5p-6p) then that's what I'd recommend because you'll otherwise overspend on a chain-restaurant meal.

    Try their happy hour on Fridays from 5 - 6. There's a fresh oyster bar to sit at while you enjoy the Sangria Prosseco.
  • Christopher M.
    Oyster selection was excellent and extensive; however, $2.25 for each one is far over-priced!!
