Stopped in for dinner with a couple guys from work. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was clean and rustic. Had a good time with a good meal. If you like oysters that's the place to go.

We had a wonderful time last night with a very special waitress guiding us thru the world of oysters - Jennifer!!
We ordered a dozen oysters to start - 2 of each of her recommendations. We then arranged the names in order of preference so that we’d know what we liked for the future. After the oysters we each had a Bibb lettuce wedge and then delicious steamed shrimp.
It was all great and one of the highlights was Jennifer. Enjoy!!

We stopped here for lunch which was nice and fresh, the lobster salad was tasty and the special oyster burger was well balanced

We did not have the best experience during out Saturday mid-day meal during restaurant week. First, they informed us that our reservation for 13 people had mysteriously been canceled, so there was a problem and wait finding us a spot together. We ended up squeezing into a corner table intended for a smaller group and dragging a small table alongside.
Once we were seated, service was exceptionally slow, which was really OK with us as we were there to to celebrate my sister-in-law's 70th birthday and we wanted to socialize. With the bar in a straight sight line to our table, it was quite noisy however and difficult to carry out much conversation.
The appetizer of fish tacos was pretty good, and the clam chowder was good as well, with Rhode Island style clear broth. BUT my wife's swordfish salad had overcooked fish so dry she only ate a small portion. My BLT Blackened Salmon Salad was much better.
Drinks seemed rather on the expensive side.
