Great location; good oysters; average service; expensive experience. While I love seafood and oysters, I felt it was not the culinary value I had hope for.

The best parts of the experience were the good service and the timeliness of the drinks and food arrival. The oysters were acceptable, according to my spouse. The peel and eat shrimp was mushy and tasted like a wet, brown paper bag, though the presentation...More

It is difficult to beat the happy hour here if you are a fan of raw oysters. $10 for a dozen is a bargain, not to mention the drinks to accompany them. I visit this place in Charleston regularly, and when I come to Columbia,...More

I enjoyed our dinner there, and we all had fish and/or oysters. The room is very loud and noisy, however. Service was good and atmosphere festive on a Friday night. There is a bar on the roof too.
