We came here on a high recommendation from a friend. Everything was just as described excellent food, atmosphere and service! We especially enjoyed the angels on horseback and the stuffin muffin, crab cake, BBQ bourbon chipotle grilled oysters, grilled romaine, raw oysters and a delightful dessert

They apparently lost their chef and have a new one. Not up to par. Sad . I hope they can recover, but it will be tough.

We tried several different types of oysters for our appetizers and for dinner the wife had the tuna tacos and I had the crab cake. Both were excellent, as the sun set it got cool but they had blankets for my wife to wrap up in so we could continue to enjoy the waterfront view. Be back soon!

This is the spot to go any time of day when it is nice outside. You can sit in the sun or shade . There are a few tables inside for chilly or inclement weather but the real treat is being outside. They have a nice choice of beers and wines. It is relaxing to enjoy some oysters on the half shell with your beverage of choice. The fish tacos are really good..you get two generously stuff ones. I loved by grilled ( perfectly) trout with broccolini. Our salads before dinner were tasty and just the right size too. I have been here several times and over the past few years ,they have made some really positive upgrades.I recommend this place! Just a note...bring a jacket for evenings because in fall temps changes quickly with wind changes and the beautiful sunsets. If no wind and still air have bug spray on your legs esp. evenings. Great for all age groups! Enjoy!

We had a light dinner at Merroir's and thoroughly enjoyed every bite.
We each had a dozen of the oysters on the 1/2 shell; 4 each of the local varieties that were farmed from local farms. Out standing!
We only has a dozen each because the price is steep for small oysters
We usually have 2 or 3 dozen each elsewhere but cost quite a bit less. Usually $9.00 doz.
Our server was really good and friendly.
We will return again and try something else.
A pound of steamed shrimp for $26.00 is outrageous. We will not order that.
