Great selection of fresh shellfish! Enjoyed Kumamotos, Clam Chowder, Steamed Clams and Grilled Cheese Sandwich. This place is loud, boisterous and very fun! Sit at the Oyster Bar and enjoy watching the kitchen staff! Very good wines by the glass!

You should certainly come here if you like oysters, and we had some delicious once. But they have a larger menu including a wonderful grilled cheese sandwich, chowder, etc. You pretty much sit at the bar, open and a little loud. Super popular.

First off, they have excellent service. The waitress and the gentlemen host would check on us several times. “Do you need more bread to soak up the juice?” Very attentive! We ordered muscles, clam chowder and Chipotle oysters. All excellent and delicious. I thought bread...More
