Service
 
Like dining “at the shore” , these New England–inspired “standbys” supply “spot-on” seafood highlighted by a most “worthy lobster roll” ; trade-offs include “high decibels” and “tight quarters” (although the expanded UWS outpost is “more comfortable” ), especially when the “unbeatable happy hour” rolls around with its “swell” oyster deals.

First time to this location. Lured in by the hush-puppies, we met another couple for dinner. Great take and presentation of the classic Iceberg Wedge salad (photo included). Really liked this. Had the mussels for my entree. The meat was good, but the broth was a little lacking. Maybe it was an off night, or may be the recipe is deficient I don't know. It was a great evening, and I would go back, but I'll get something else instead!!

Great oyster happy hour! Lovely atmosphere, inside and outdoors. Great fish tacos and lobster rolls. Ample serving sizes. Gracious staff. All good for a date or a group... Very good!

I'll start with an on point waiter (I apologize for forgetting your name). Super fresh happy hour oysters and little neck clams. Perfectly charred octopus, and seared yellow fin tuna on top of a tzaziki salad (It's a Greek spot). Free rich chocolate pudding and a "fish" that reads your energy. Awesome. Not the first time, not the last time.
