The least expensive meal I had in Wilmington and yet the very best I had!! Go here, you won’t be sorry!! Awesome raw oysters, awesome fried oysters, awesome vibe - basically awesome all the way around.

Took about 15 for afternoon apps. Had dozens of local oysters, dozens of steamed clams and steamed shrimp. Loved it all. The staff was great. We hung out for awhile. Really enjoyed it

We were visiting family in Wilmington and they knew how much we love oysters and seafood, so they took us here. We were very disappointed. The oysters were small and all other dishes were not very fresh or flavorful. One person in our party, ordered...More

Average is how I'd describe it. Nothing special. Owners have hit on a market that's hot right now - okay Seafood served in an atmosphere that makes you feel like you're someplace special - but then the food comes and, Meh. Red Lobster-like.

Half shell where just okay. Steam and chargrilled were dried dried-out. The corn on the cob was either previously frozen or not fresh and overcooked. Female bartender, however, was very pleasant. I will not return nor do I recommend the place.

Delicious food and unpretentious atmosphere. We had their salad with blackened mahi and we got an order of 12 oysters. Both were absolutely scrumptious Service was quick and friendly

...as far as you can and don't look back. Or, better yet, burn your money. Questionable hygiene. Cook drinking at the bar awaiting the next order. In fact the entire staff is distracted. Water (hopefully not biohazard) dripping from the ceiling onto customers and food...More

First, it's nothing fancy. It's more of a hole-in-the-wall bar establlishment. They have seafood by the bucket! They have decent hush puppies, and we also liked the crab balls. I know Snow crab isn't local, but the steamed crab legs are always a good portion...More
