This place is a piece of history that serves up some delicious oysters and seafood! We enjoyed steamed shrimp, scallops, oysters and a cluster of crab legs. Outstanding service and amazing food!

Always a treat to go here. The staff,owner,shuckers all treat you like family. The oysters were large this time but sooooooooo good. Steamed perfectly and that "secret" sauce is out of bounds. Nice beers on tap. Even a good one from Uptown out of G-vegas!...More

This is a historical place. This is what a working poor man in the early 1900's would have experienced at a seafood joint. It is like walking back in time. The people are so interesting. They only serve raw oysters, steamed oysters, shrimp, and scallops...More
