Best oyster stew I’ve had in 30 years. Simple and pure. No thickening. Just lots of oysters milk and butter to soak up oyster crackers. I was in heaven. The chef is a larger than life personality and Taz, our waiter, was very knowledgeable. The Mediterranean flounder crab special was superb. We will be back! Check out the 5 pound lobster with the chef.

All was good until dessert. Wrote on reservation to bring a piece of cake for a birthday. Told the hostess before seating. No cake arrived, only dessert menus. Got up and told another server about the cake to tell my server. Capucchino arrived and no cake. Got up and told the hostess again. Finally it arrived, but too late. Attention to detail is what makes winners.

The service was excellent and the staff cared. The salmon was the best we ever had. The crab was fantastic as well. We will definitely go back.

It was my first visit since the renovation and I must say it’s really very nice in the bar area. However I am very disappointed in how close tables are even with the extra room. They squeeze too many tables together. Very uncomfortable. Not my favorite restaurant for a nice evening.
