Wow. Really impressed with this place. I was in town on business and stopped in by myself and sat at the bar. The interior is full of dark wood and the bar itself has a large ice tray for shucking fresh oysters. After a conversation with the bartender, I ordered a cocktail and a couple small plates of seafood. They were amazing. The shellfish was fresh, bright, scallops wrapped in smoked salmon, plated with a beet puree and carrots. The plating was gorgeous. The fish stew full review

This place totally rocks. Lovely atmosphere, excellent bar and man are the oysters great! The amazing lady who served me was the most knowledgeable person I’ve met, explaining all the little details about each type of oyster she served me. And they put a mean charcuterie board together. If you’re into oysters this is the place but the rest of the menu looked delicious as well!

Great brick, mortar, and beamed joists showcasing a historic building that creates a close atmosphere fantastic for entertaining. Surrounding with excellent servers and kitchen staff that provide a delight to their patrons. Not to mention the lengths the bar goes to serve you, and the very fine and robust selection of beverages and oysters available. On top of that there is a piano and musician on hand. One needs to spend an evening to soak in an the qualities it offers.
