We couldn't get a dinner reservation but stopped by the community table by the bar area and enjoyed a nice variety of three types of fresh oysters from local waters, Virginia and New England (certainly not inexpensive at $30/doz) but they were appropriately briny, fresh...More

Scallops, shrimp, and grouper were excellent. Sautéed mushrooms were the best I’ve ever had. Loved this place. Will definitely return.

Quite casual, but smart and neat. I was wearing shorts and a polo shirt and did not feel out of place at all.
