Oysters were in from Galveston, and man were they large and fresh! Being from South Dakota, we do not get access to fresh oysters near often enough. So when we are somewhere we can get them, we practice gluttony. These oysters were shucked beyond exception,...More

I've dined here, lunch and dinner, off and on since the dearly 1980s when I worked at the nearby UT med school. They have a good basic menu, kind of third-coast traditional. Nothing real exciting, but in my experience always well prepared and tasty. Oyster...More
