This is a fairly small restaurant with a very nice, comfortable atmosphere. Reservations are a good idea. The prices are fairly high and I almost didn't get the lobster roll due to the price. However, once I took my first bite, all my doubts evaporated....More

One of the best restaurants in Baltimore, and probably the best restaurant in Baltimore for fresh seafood. The oyster selection is impressive, and the mussels are a favorite of ours.

Terrific waitress. Lively restaurant. My husband loved his fresh super large raw clams, salad and clam chowder. I had a variety of fresh raw oysters and boulliabase. The boulliabase was good, not the best I have ever had, but acceptable. Fun location in Fells Pt.

We were able to get in for dinner on Saturday night with only about a 15 minute wait. Delicious lobster roll and a good oyster po'boy! I especially enjoyed the local beer Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. Very small place and noisy, but very good service...More
