Decor is stunning, drink menu is specialize – you’re not getting out of this one alive! At least your pocketbook isn’t. To be fair, $3-$4 per oyster when you can choose from about 20 types from all over is nothing to scoff at. This was our first seafood destination on our Boston/Maine vacay and it’s safe to say it delivered.
After sipping a few drinks with clever names such as “death in the afternoon” (a champagne cocktail laced with absinthe) we were ready to dive in. Although we came with the thought of oysters and dinner the raw menu sucked us in. They had me a cocktail shrimp.
What we (the two of us) ended up ordering was a raw selection meant to share between four people. The quantity of food and the presentation were definitely large! A couple next to us even leaned over and asked what “that” was. It’s amazing incarnate, obviously. This sampler of sorts was not offered in a smaller size, but even if it was we’d probably opt for the biggie anyways. It included two half lobsters, a half dozen of the house oysters, a half dozen little neck clams, 4 jumbo shrimp cocktail, and halibut ceviche plus all the fixins. I’m a gold medalist when it comes to eating seafood, but at the end of this meal I was satisfied.
Super bonus – for my boyfriend’s birthday they brought us the most amazing confetti cake layered with fresh raspberries and butter cream frosting, and raspberry laced ice cream. Staff were super accommodating and went out of their way to make our night!
