Price point on oysters is outrageous. About a dollar more per oyster than places such as Rodney's or whalebone.
Other options on the menu are all reasonably priced.
The lemonade is a must try

The service and ambiance were great. Our server was very accommodating to our situation. (We had 3 babies in the group!)

Unfortunately, the food was not good. The unanimous impression at the table was that all of the dishes were either too bland or too salty. The lobster bake special I ordered was bland and overcooked. The garlic smashed potatoes it came with were very under-seasoned as well. My wife's albacore tuna salad was way too salty. It was drenched in way too much soy sauce or something.

We could've probably asked to return the dishes for new ones or for alternative options. However, with the babies becoming increasingly fussy, we didn't have the luxury of waiting for all the plates to be redone.

Went there for our anniversary. I don't recall the name of the server, but she was really good. She listened to our questions and provided good advice. Food was amazing, the pork belly and scallops, was over my expectations. Didn't feel rushed at all, we had plenty of time to eat some oysters, an appetizer and we shared a delicious lobster as a main. The desserts were also as great as the meals.

Tucked away in a strip mall, don't let the outside deter you the inside is warm inviting and very comfortable. Waiter was great, good energetic, knowledgeable. Food was very good, great flavors, loved the scallop and pork belly, had the lobster risotto - lobster was well cooked, but I found the inclusion of squash in the risotto a little discordant in texture and flavor with the rest of the dish. My companions enjoyed the Lobster Bake and appreciated the willingness to change out the potato for another option. Overall well worth it would go back next time I am in Niagara.

We were in the “ new room “ which is totally void of character or ambience. We had no info re : types of oysters, specials etc. The food was ok except for the whole fish special which was very over cooked and dried out.

My hubby and I had reserved seats at the bar and the gentleman behind the bar was engaged with us the whole night. He really knew his stuff and recommended the perfect dishes for us. We were able to watch them shuck the oysters up close and personal. Very interesting. The staff look like they all get along so well and are amazing with their customers. The music selection was fun and upbeat. Great oysters. Perfect spot for a night out. It's a hidden gem of Niagara. Definatly going to be our go to spot when we visit Niagara.

Set in a shopping strip, my expectations lowered. After getting a "two finger" 2 oz. $13 martini which filled less than 1/3 of my small, low, non chilled glass with my olives, it didn't get much better. The "Old Fashioned" arrived just as small...3 sips and done. Ridiculous. Little value for a lot of money. The very attentive and sassy, typically tattooed server described the lunch with enthusiasm. The lobster roll arrived small with dry bread barely toasted or buttered with a side of potato salad that I doctored with the hot mustard sauce to give it some flavor. My partner ordered the scallops with savory bread pudding and 2 scallops...delicious.. Both priced at $20, one worth it and the other made you wonder how a chef could create both. Oysters at $3.50 a piece were also fresh and well presented. It was like the emperor's new clothes...lot of hoopla but nothing really there and not worth trying to find the place in this offbeat location from Niagara Falls. Only went there because I read some rave reviews. Disappointing. Also, noted on Open Table reservation that it was a birthday lunch and could they bring a surprise little cake to the table which went totally unnoticed as this wasn't done...at the end of lunch I really was ready to just leave. Over $100 for ??? You can find so much better...

The food was very nice and well presented. Fresh seafood. Even the vege used local ingredients and perfectly seasoned. Service was excellent. A little pricier meal compared to normal dine-out (but not too bad $34+ for a main course) so expect to pay at least $130 for two after taxes and tips but we come to Niagara Falls only once in a while.
