Sophisticated adult dinning at its best! For those who want to treat their pallets to impressive seafood dishes both crudo & cooked. Not to mention the specially crafted spirits! All while dinning in a beautifully adorned setting.

THIS PLACE DOES NOT SERVE FOOD. And their hours are wrong online. We showed up at 6:48, thinking it would be open bc that's what it says online. The girls working told us to come back at 7. We came back and they told us that they are only a bar now and don't serve food. Their online presence needs some help.

Food was good, but the service was a disaster. No manager on staff. One of the bartenders was shouting at the wait staff. Food came out before drinks. They really need to get it together, because the bartender went from table to table asking if we actually ordered the drinks the waitress rang in. I’ve had better service at Burger King.

So it was my 1st time going...was for a birthday dinner. It was 830pm. The inside was nice & they have seating overlooking the water...its probably really nice during the day. I was sort of taken back by such a small menu for being called a raw bar. I ordered 3 different types of oysters 2 sets raw & 1 cooked "Rockefeller" also ordered the steamed shrimp & the scallop dinner. So the scallops where perfectly cooked & the butternut puree was tasty. It was 4 scallops & a small bowl of loaded potato salad (my choice of side) there are only 2 other sides to pick from. The oysters were fresh however if I were serving blue point,James river,River, duxbury oysters I would not serve half shells that looked empty. At least 3 on my platter of James were very small...almost embarrassing to serve small & 2 on my Duxbury platter & 2 on my blue point. For a raw bar...I wouldn't serve the microscopic oysters. I could have put 3 of them together to equal one. The back of the house may want to consider that when sending out oysters now matter what time it is. The kitchen closed at 930pm. So I placed an order of the 3 sets of oysters plus an additional set of the Rockefeller ones. The shrimp were nice & big & cooked/steamed well...the seasoning could do with some more type of flavor. The loaded potato salad was absolutely delicious...did I mention that? Maybe some more options for appetizers whether raw or cooked would be nice... overall ok food. I would try again at an earlier time & see if the service of food is the same. I ate my full because I had not eaten as yet so... I wouldn't write them off as yet.So after reading everyone's reviews & pictures...im wondering why the condensed menu I received ??

Went last night with my daughter and son in law. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the restaurant very much. We will be back! We like the delish tiny oysters, especially Duxenbury (spelling).

Where are my oyster lovers at? Absolutely the freshest. A great afternoon retreat on the riverfront! Located upstairs right above Southbound Smokehouse - Riverside at SRP Park in North Augusta!

Absolutely amazing dining experience every time! The scallops are my absolute favorite as well as the drift drop (pictured)

First of all I must say the staff from the time we walked in was very friendly. Our waitress took very good care of us. Kept our drinks full at all times. She is one that you don’t have to look for something. The bartender could make anything you asked for and friendly as well. The food we had ordered the scallops, Cuban sandwich, steamed shrimp, and a shrimp roll.all was outstanding. If your not an oyster fan the oysters they prepared was delicious. Couldn’t wait to dig in before I took a picture of the food. I will return. Thank you all for fast a friendly service.

This place was so good! We ended up here accidentally and on a night that the SRP park had a shinedown concert. We got the best seats in the house out on the patio! It was awesome! Gorgeous views! The oysters were delicious. Staff was attentive and very friendly. The bathrooms were super clean. Even had a fresh candle burning. It was a great date night.

The raw oyster were fresh, cold, and delish... the Gullah Shrimp were fabulous...

I was ripped off. For having 1 dish of scallops , which cost 21 dollars plus tax. The manager gave a couple complimentary drinks and I got overcharged. My bill was 39 dollars. People please check your bill twice. Tried to call the restaurant during business hours. They would not respond to my calls after leaving them a message too. BE CAREFUL.
