    3 of us shared a dozen oysters, Caesar salad with fried oysters and the large, whole branzino. It was all terrific. This isn’t fancy dining and you don’t pay fancy prices. Try it.

    Wobbly table, awful wine, slow food delivery, over-cooked shrimp and burgers, hot sun in our faces, on the water but you can't see the water, expensive for the quality and amount of food.

    Perfect day to be sitting on the deck for lunch. The raw oysters were great, fried were good but too much breading for our taste. Salads and tuna tartare rounded out the dishes for our group of four. Service was outstanding

    The salt oysters were the best of the three offered. I had their gin drink on the menu and was great and refreshing.

    I am always so pleased to see Julian M when I come to sit outside with my dog. He is friendly and knowledgable and prompt. And the oysters and the burrata salad can’t be beat!

    All of the seafood was super fresh. The oysters were amazing and the recommendation of the branzino by the server was spot. It was full of flavor and perfectly cooked.
