Too loud, bar was backed up and took nearly an hour to get a drink. Hostess told us she was seating us near the window and table was as far from the window as could be. Not what we had in mind.

Went for happy hour and love it. Such a friendly and welcoming staff; we went with a toddler and they were super patient and attentive with him and us. Definitely going again.

Very long wait for happy hour oysters. Chose Buffalo cauliflower to eat in the meantime which came quickly but was disappointing. The cauliflower was raw with a spicy sauce poured over it.

It was a regular date night and wanted to try a new restaurant that was in walking distance. Seawolf was recommended to us and they did not disappoint. We got there half hour early and they still seated us, the view was beautiful being able to see the water and the city lights with the perfect sunset.
The set up was great, I like that you can see you food being made and everyone was practicing proper hygiene, the food was exceptional and the portions was great. We left there super stuffed and happy.

Came with a few friends for Lobster Tuesdays and everything we ate was so good. The view from the restaurant was amazing. The service was on point. Alex our waiter made sure we were good the entire time. Very attentive. The manager Andrew also came to check on us. I would definitely come back and highly recommend it.

The hostess asked if we were vaccinated which was TMI…. We didn’t have plans to sit inside anyway. She made us a quick table for 2 outside. Kinda felt on top of the other patrons but me and my date was vining so it wasn’t too big of deal. The view of the city is amazing !!! I ordered the lobster roll and it was amazing!! The fries were tiny and skinny lol. My date had the cod and he loved it, it was a small portion tho. We didn’t have mixed drinks so I can’t comment on the cocktails.

Really fun, beautiful spot In Williamsburg. Excellent food. Worth the trek from the city though the ferry from east 34th st is an easier transport option than the L because it’s a bit of a hike from
The train station.

We had a good time. Place is noisy, but open air, so tolerable. Richard, General Manager, very attentative and helpful, Claudia, our server was terrific. Lobster roll got rave reviews from 3 of our party. Thr fourth hsd fish and chips. Mac and cheese, should get a pass. $1 oysters meant our table had 4 dozen. Delicious, but malpecs which are small. All in all, pleasant evening.

Food was good, but not great. The staff were great. From the front til the end of dinner. The bill was quite high, the the alcohol one price, the ice cubes an added fee and then the juice in the drink another. Three different cost for one drink. We did question the cost and the manager did remove it.
Beautiful views.

The oysters were sooo fresh as usual I love this place, the painkillers are mouth watering. I have never had fried calamari that was tasty but the waiter told me they were good and it was his best appetizer there and that I should try it. I was skeptical but gave it a try and boy was he right. The sweet chili sauce was the perfect match for the dipping sauce. I think he just made a new calamari fan out of me.

They may have been understaffed this night, but the waiter wasn’t knowledgable of the food or cocktail menu at all to help answer my questions. My meal came out 10 minutes later than my girlfriends order and the food came out wrong, so I didn’t get to really eat until over an an hour after sitting. The manager did come out and help, but the service was not very good upfront. Ive heard good things about this place, but wasn’t the best this time.
