Food was great, had some oysters and the salmon daily special. Beer selection had a few local selections which I do appreciate, including my favourite People Skills by Tool Shed.... More

Great staff & food, if you want to get in please make reservations. The oysters are beautiful, the shrimp are to die for. The servers went above & beyond. You have a amazing menu to choose from. The beer on tap is top notch & 5-6 selections. Happy hour features oysters for $2.00 until 6pm. The decor is 10/10. Tom... More

Enjoyed the small seafood tower and a bottle of wine. Oysters ,clams, mussels and crab amazing. Sadly the lobster was not. Would like to see servers dressed a bit less casual. Just our preference.

Just discovered this place and will be back. Great to find a seafood place in cow town! The service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was fresh and there was definitely enough on a plate to satisfy me!
