My favorite restaurant locally. The best steamers anywhere. Have been there many times. The food and the service is the best.

Our first time here and were very pleased with the fresh oysters! We came early with grandchildren and were promptly served by the courteous wait staff. Enjoyable meal and would happily return.

This adorable restaurant is very quaint and the food is outstanding. I'm allergic to shellfish but they still had choices for me and my family was able to enjoy the rest. Expensive but worth it for a special treat.
