Seafood | Tempe, East Valley

We enjoyed a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The place was not busy at all. There are a couple of nice patios, but it was a bit too warm for al fresco. We were seated in a comfy booth. The ambiance is very casual, family friendly, but the seafood is on par with fine establishments. The oyster sampler was most remarkable, a nice assortment of chilled fresh quality oysters. Much better than ones we had at the hoity toity Ocean Club. A dozen oysters for $32 is not bad either. The sourdough bread was soft centered and crisp crust, just the way I like it. We enjoyed entrees of grilled scallops and fried prawns. The veggies were plentiful and delicious. The bar area looks really comfy! Our server, Callie, was quite attentive. Even after an error in our order and some tech difficulties, the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. Shout out to the floor manager too, so sweet. Overall we had a lovely Easter dinner. More

He had about 18 people get together, and this placed delivered. They were very flexible with us and welcoming. Our food orders took a bit longer than expected to come out, but everything was delicious. The drinks were good, but I wish there were a bar menu, that would have helped with ordering. Overall we had a great experience and I would definitely come back or recommend this place during the day. More
