Seafood Restaurant

“Super restaurants for seafood and oysters, Best happy hour in town BEST to get there early. It is not uncommon for a line to start forming a half hour before opening. Happy hour is 3- 5pm . Oysters are always fresh and ice cold. Drink specials are great and their happy hour specials are generous portions of food beyond what you would expect for the price.”
