I found out about that spot from a food blog and was not disappointed. Even if it's a bit more chilly, you can sit outside because of the heaters. The service is courteous and friendly, the food is great and I would recommend eating some...More

My husband loves oysters and we were driving around looking for a place for lunch. No wonder they asked if we had reservations. Nice selection of raw and regular food. The bread plate they gave us when we sat down, excellent.

Went there for happy hour for a few Oyster Shooters. Saw a few burgers being made as the kitchen is right behind the bar and couldn't resist getting one. Defiantly one of the best burgers ever, cooked perfectly.
