The beer and food was top notch during happy hour. I highly recommend getting the steamed shrimp-it was some of the best that I have ever had. The oysters were dynamite also.

Had the seafood tower. It was a great value. Very fresh with a good assortment. Good atmosphere and a nice neighborhood right by the bay.
