    Come sit on the patio and have some oysters or at night sit by the fire and enjoy the atmosphere which will transport you to Vermont, Rockport, Newburyport. or a farm in Maine or Upstate New York.

    50 cent oysters before 6 pm, and they're really big! Great location to sit outside in the sun and people-watch during the summer, especially because it's on a pedestrian street. Good vibes.

    Excellent place for dinner. The cocktails were inventive and well-crafted and the food was prepared perfectly. The gluten free lobster rigatoni with homemade vodka sauce is wonderful for gfree eaters.

    Sit at the bar by the fireplace on a cold night - super cozy. Plus, $1 oysters 12-6! The scallops are out-of-this world delicious.

    Lobster risotto was tasty and had some very generous chunks of lobster in it. Oysters are good and fairly priced. Sitting by a fireplace on a chilly september night was priceless.

    Great salmon & lamb. Appetizer was a little small for the price. Pretty good drink selection & outdoor bar is a nice touch. Overall a good place to grab some food, but a bit pricey.

    It's almost too much in summer to deal with the crowds. On a blustery Sunday afternoon in March at the bar with the fire roaring...perfect. Get some oysters and settle in.

    Lobster fra diavolo was superb. Lobster is fresh and sweet and the pasta must be handmade.

    If you can sit in the bar for lunch by the fireplace it's lovely. Breadless chicken club rocks

    Happy hour is from 3-6pm! Two oysters for $1! Don't miss it. Otherwise, it's $1 which isn't bad at all. Rough life. ;-)

    Sam adams is $6. Kinda high. Then they add on tax. THAT is some buckle and dime BS. If it weren't for the 50¢ oysters id have left.
