The happy hour is fun and filled with 20 and 30 year olds. I had the oysters - 12 for $1.40 a piece. They were cold, perfectly shucked, and came with 4 sauces. The beer selection was decent, too. Happy hour ends at 7.

Pemaquids from Maine were gigantic and so delicious. Wiley Points were an old favorite and they were so good, but tiny compared to the Pemaquids. We sat at the oyster bar which was fun and also had cornmeal crusted fried oysters and the pork cheeks....More
