Everything here is tasty, in a lively atmosphere, with a good happy hour menu. The peel & eat shrimp are a favorite treat.

We love happy hour here, as they offer amazing, fresh raw oysters and other outstanding selections. Beware, though, the cosmopolitans are strong!

Happy hour starts at 4pm and when I arrived at 430pm the bar was already packed. Great happy menu with oysters being the best seller. Had the jumbo shrimps, gumbo and corn fritters. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely return.

They did not have any outside seating if I'm not mistaken. Didn't see any, the restaurant is curbside
