We were told this was where locals go for great seafood. The meals was exceptional, fresh oysters, crab cakes, crab legs, fish fillet, oyster shooter from the bar, all was amazing. It is a casual atmosphere, which I love! The bartender is wonderful. You'd think...More

Underwhelmed with the food. Overwhelmed with the prices. Too high for what you get. I would try someplace different next time in Baltimore. Service was great though. Nothing bad to say about wait staff

This restaurant can get very noisy. Pick times when not so busy. The food is delicious. Crab cakes best in town, and you got to try the seafood stew.

I have 2 boys, ages 10 & 7. There is no children's menu currently on-line, but there are plenty of good selections on the kid's menu, such as fish, burgers, and chicken nuggets. My boys had a great time here!!!
