  • This place was a great find! We stopped in after hiking in the Moran State Park for a quick snack. We had fresh oysters, steamed crab, smoked salmon, smoked cod and a parmesan flat bread. They teach you how to shuck the oysters and then let you go to town. The smoked fish with the flat bread crisp was my favorite part. They let us bring our own beer and even have us some frosty mason jars. You also receive a bucket to place empty shells, which they later dump back into the water! This place is highly recommend. In fact, I would love some of that salmon this very moment.
  • Feel like a local in this relaxing atmosphere with welcoming staff. Super fresh non-fishy smelling oysters pair perfectly with the bring-your-own wine and bread. Our oyster-hostess was pleasantly patient in demonstrating to a few newbies how to chuck! Definitely a second visit is due and worth the travel!
  • We went here to get oysters for lunch. The staff was very friendly and gave a great demo on how to shuck an oyster. It's hard to beat the prices -- about half of restaurant prices -- as long you don't mind eating at an outdoor picnic table.
  • Try the Buck bay oysters. Nice ladies working there
  • Awesome oysters. Awesome staff.
