I think my title pretty much says it all. We tried several items on the menu and all were great. I ordered the Cajun seafood Alfredo and loved it. It had way more seafood in it than you would get at most restaurants. Our server was awesome, even recommended a couple local beers that were spot on perfect with our food.

Stopped in for a beer and had some spiced shrimp. The service and the food were both good. It’s a bar...but I’d recommend it for people looking for drinks and seafood.

Best oysters we ate as we rambled along the Gulf and Low Country from East TX to Hampton Roads VA. The jalapeno crab dip is likewise yummy. We sat at the bar in order to watch the World Series Game, settled in.... Service was impeccable, cocktails were prompt, beer was cold. And WHAT? They closed at 9:30 - so sad. Otherwise an A+ experience. Be warned, though. No long sports events.

One person our party did not like the sangria. We came here not particularly hungry and thoroughly enjoyed the scallops special, king crab legs, which was very tasty. Would certainly come back again

The shrimp tacos, jalapeño crab and shrimp dip, and calamari were very good. The only thing I was disappointed in were the raw oysters. I’ve eaten oysters from a lot of different places and these were not my favorite. But other than that everything else including the atmosphere was good.

Everyone has their own expectation as to what an Oyster should taste like.
Some like salty, some sweet, big, small etc. That being said we have consistently won Best Oysters in Wilmington for close to 20 years. We have new batches, come in daily to ensure freshness and flavor. If you mentioned your dissatisfaction or wasn't asked if you were happy, please message me ! We take Customer service very seriously.
Thanks for your business... Steve
