Fishing pub meets restaurant - that's the ingenious idea behind the Walrus and the Carpenter. This bustling neighborhood restaurant specializes in oysters and other seafood dishes. Using nothing but the freshest ingredients, Chef BJ Bresnik creates seasonal food. The Walrus and the Carpenter also serves wine, smart cocktails, beer and cider. It makes an ideal after-hours hangout spot. Enjoy some fried oysters with a cold beer, surrounded by cozy rustic furnishings. If you prefer an alternative to seafood, look no further than the steak tartare, which comes with thinly sliced rye toast and egg yolk. Launched in 2010 to rave reviews, The Walrus and the Carpenter is open daily between 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Take advantage of happy hour for great deals on beer and wine between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.

The food was just average. I expected it to be amazing after reading all the reviews but was left disappointed by the mediocrity

We had a fantastic time. While you wait for your table go to the bar next door, Barnacle. The bartenders are superb at crafting delicious cocktails. Once we got to our table, the entire serving staff was delightful, guiding us in our experience but also enjoying the experience with us. Thanks team for a lovely evening!

After extracting $20 from us at the barnacle bar (where a knowledgeable bartender read off a card to us about our liqueurs), we were moved to some interim waiting stools. The wait staff was unable to get the table before us to leave.

To save you the details, I think only the fried geoduck was notable: the foie gras profiteroles tasted like salty whipped cream, the turnips were a large, tooth-aching portion, and the halibut ceviche tostada was a tiny, unsharable lump indistinguishable from tilapia.

The server spilled my drink into our $6 bread. Save your money and frustration and go somewhere else - anywhere else.

Dylan makes the best cocktails and the entire staff are the most friendly. Delicious food and worth waiting for!
