It's quaint, personal and the servers are very informative. Get there early for happy hr. otherwise you'll be standing for a bar seat.... restaurant seating is not quite as challenging...

The very freshest seafood. Oysters are trucked in daily from the Chesapeake Bay. Great cocktails. Lively atmosphere. Call ahead.

The lobster mac and cheese was amazing; great oysters-both raw (we had the sampler and all of them were delicious and fresh) and fried (also delicious, cooked just right). Interesting drinks; excellent service by Taber.
