Wow! This place is super yummy. We tried the Waterman's Platter and the blackened North Carolina Trout. The trout was perfect as was the catfish. And can we take a minute to appreciate the hush puppies?! They were like a dessert! The atmosphere was relaxing, with good music and pleasant staff! Oh!!! And don't forget to try the Ghost pepper Pomegranate Margarita!!! That was delicious! And thank you to our sweet waitress who gave me a good recommendation for a nail salon!

First time going only because I was specifically looking for lobster! Hands down the best Maine lobster roll Ive ever had down south. I also tried the CT lobster roll (warm & buttered) which was delicious as well. Oysters were fresh and very good, as were the grilled oysters. Service was top notch, friendly, and looking at the expo line they were really efficient & communicative. Only critiques were that the area for restrooms was directly behind diners seating area - it was blocked off but by pieces of spaced out wood, just a little weird to look into the bathroom as youre eating - and the stools/chairs in the restaurant were a little uncomfortable. Overall a great time and experience with fresh seafood and excellent service. Will be back soon!

I can't say enough about this place. Service is always on point. The rooftop bar area is awesome. The food is always on point. All of the food is good. I haven't had a bad meal yet at this place. Low key, their burger is one of the best in the city. The quality of the beef is fantastic and it's always super juicy.

Good place to meet up with friends. Rooftop bar and outdoor patio were inviting so no interior shots but will update on next visit. Pricey but good. Sierra was our server. Very friendly and attentive - probably best service I have had in months. Good food, great place to hang out.

Not too shabby. Great experience & good customer service. Went in for the oyster special for the evening still spent a pretty penny but was well worth it. Be prepared to eat some delicious seafood but expect to spend $40-50 per person with drinks. The upstairs bar is very nice to hang out with a small group of friends
