Normally our first stop after driving over to Carmel from Carefree, AZ. Good fun, great oysters and seafood. Very reasonable pricing.

Perfect place for a seafood eatery and pub with moderate prices. Service was very good with a friendly attitude and quick seating with no reservations. We all enjoyed our meals from prawns to salads. Roger

Great place for an inexpensive dinner in a good environment. I got a crab cake with Cesar salad for 13USD.. and a nice glass of local wine !

Stopped in to grab a quick bite after most Carmel restaurants were closed. Clam chowder was excellent. Great service at the bar, warm bread was a nice touch. If you drink Scotch, they have most every brand.

Noisy little bar restaurant on Ocean. Tasteless food, lousy fish tacos and greasy grilled tuna sand. Avoid if possible. Cheap price and cheap food, no grilled fish.

If you love oysters like I do, definitely come by. We tried other dishes and they were good. Place is definitely busy. Depending on what time of day you go, if they get real busy, the service gets a bit hairy.

Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch. I enjoyed 1/2 a dozen oysters and half a sandwich. Also discovered they had Pappy Vanwinkle bourbon which I have been on a mission to find

Very nice place. The fish sampler was great! Good choice. The beer is excellent and we picked a bottle of wine at a decent price. Great choice of food and nice place to be!

I don't think so. Did not see any in the restaurant. Room area is tight, close and crowded. Probably not the best idea.
