This is a well run restaurant. The wait staff was excellent, the food was aesthetically pleasing and appetizing. Two managers touched our tables. Oysters at $2.75-$3.35 is more than I would like to pay but it's a monied area.

A real resturant with good food and service in a noisy setting on Atlantic. Wow what a change from pub grub, sandwiches, and poor service. Excellent oysters, love their scallops, and half price wine on Monday and yes they have a happy hour.

Almost everything you order is great if you can put up with the noise. The branzini is awesome and the sushi bar is fresh and good

Casual dress is fine, including shorts. Almost every restaurant in Downtown Delray Beach is casual since it is a Beach town.
