We had the chilled seafood platter to share for two - it was excellent with plenty of oysters, shrimps and snow crab legs. Good selection of wine and beer in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

I simply stopped in for some raw oysters. The server recommends the house brand indicating they were the most popular. As a Vermonter fresh oysters are difficult to come by. These oysters were enormous, fresh and juicy. I jjst wish I had been here earlier.

Had a wonderful evening at Fontaine's Oyster House. Appetizers were delish and nice selection - just wish they offered special cocktail prices during happy hour.
