    We went for lunch with 2 couples. Everything was outstanding. The empanadas and dumplings were both fabulous. The oysters were perfect sized and delicious. They also had lots of fun wine selections by the glass. We had a great time!!

    The overall vibe of the restaurant was great, however we were disappointed with the value. Food was decent but this restaurant sets itself apart by its unique environment.

    We visited with family on vacation. Is nice but kid friendly as well. We had the low country boil (very good), lobster Mac and cheese (outstanding per husband), crab legs. My picky 8 year old had two servings of fries so I will also recommend those. We did have dessert….the death by chocolate is small portioned but very Rich so not a lot needed, and I had the Orange creamsicle crepe brûlée which I liked very much. Outstanding service (Gia)

    Oysters rock and dumplings were great but two of us got the $25 fish pie I would have been fine with the price but the sauce and the crust both lacked flavor and the filling was sadly bereft of seafood. Ate here once before loved it. brought friends this time, who were also less than impressed

    Went for Happy Hour at the bar and was not disappointed! The food was great. Fried oysters and the baked scallop were my fav. Service was great at the bar even though they were pretty busy. I would be a regular if I lived close enough.

Harley was our server and she was knowledgeable, friendly and spot on with her recommendations helping us decide on the perfect choices for our dining. Beer and wine selections were very nice as well. Definitely want to try Happy Hour!

    We were visiting the area and my son wanted seafood. My search brought us to this place. The reviews were spot on! We didn’t have a bad food item! Granddaughter loved her grilled cheese and fries (mom and dad approved also!) My son and I had the shrimp ceviche. Oh. My. Gosh! It was fantastic! So much flavor and none of it was overpowering. I also had a beet salad with fried goat cheese. Also amazing! The only negative...I didn’t need to eat it all of what I ordered but it was too good to not! Lol My husband and son also ordered a variety of the fresh oysters. They loved them all! My husband wished he could have stayed all day just to taste all of the varieties. Really you couldn’t make a disappointing choice. Descriptions were spot on. Their homemade hot sauce was very tasty but not very hot, which is a good thing even though they both like spicy food. They didn’t want to ‘mask’ the flavor of the oysters. That just speaks to how fresh the oysters were. My husband also had steamed mussels which he said were very good and fresh. My daughter in law had the shrimp boil and she said everything was done to perfection! (My husband had to order a side of fries after trying our granddaughters. Lol) Excellent place and would go back in a heartbeat!

    You can't go wrong here. The oysters are fantastic no matter how you get them. I prefer the rock version, but raw, roasted, and fried are all great too. They have an awesome happy hour as well. The trout pate and nashville hot chicken are good as well. Really, the entire menu is well done and we haven't had a dish that wasn't great. Service is always on point.

    The Atlantic never disappoints! Vincent and his team went above and beyond to help our group celebrate a special friends birthday. From the wine chosen, fish tacos, burgers, Brussel sprouts, crab avocado toast to the delicious peanut butter pie- we enjoyed every bite! Delicious! We will continue to support this local favorite! #Proven #winner
