great tasting oysters, watching them shucking it and cooking it in front of you, great experience. The fresh ones were the best.

Uniquely served creamy clam chowder. The clams are in their shells, served in the middle of the soup, and lots of them. Very tasty.

Fun time and great atmosphere. Staff is friendly and fun. Food is great and depending on the time expect to wait. But its well worth it. Everything is fresh right down to the horseradish.

Visited the place for clams and they did not disappoint. We sat near the chef so all the action was close. Each dish is prepared when ordered. Everything is fresh. Your MUST have the clam chowder, it’s one of a kind.
