Great oysters, steamers, and seafood salads. Their lobster bake is a great value, with lobster, clams, mussels, corn, and potatoes.

We were looking for a sunday brunch place, and ended up having an entree/main/dessert for $25. This includes yellow tomato gazpacho, 1 1/4lb lobster and lime pie, seriously good value. The atmosphere is also really nice, very bright and the service is awesome.
