Food was good and the restaurant has very nice ambiance. They did not have my reservation ready as they indicated they don't use Open Table ??? 😳

We ordered the lobster and the seafood cracker they provided really DID NOT WORK. They're a cute but cheap plastic set and it was a bit of a struggle to crack open part of the lobster that wasn't the tail.

Atmosphere was wonderful. Super cute and staff was great. Wonderful wine. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed with the food. We had the angry crab cakes, sloppy tacos, oysters, clam chowder, and tuna rockers. Clam chowder was nice, but everything else kind of fell flat.

This place has great food and a really nice ambiance with low lighting and candles in the tables. It's cozy and friends or dates will love it. Plus the staff is friendly and very accommodating. Great gem!

Lobster BLT was good but it was soaked in butter and not enough meat. I would recommend oysters.

My husband was in the mood for fried oysters. Although not on the menu, Tyler encouraged us to come and they would do what we liked. When we got the fried oysters they weren't the Old Skool fried, O Bay seasoned oysters we're used to from Baltimore. We did have outstanding Brooklyn clam chowder and amazing soft shell crab bites (Make sure you have this!!!). But the best part? Tyler spoke to us & apologized & adjusted our bill because we didn't get what we expected. He noted our desire in our reservation so next time they would know. We can't WAIT to go back there! They understand oysters and they know customer service!
