AAA Inspector Notes
A bright, vibrant dining space with no clear division between the snazzy lounge area and the main dining room with its teakwood boat plank-style floor. The menu features oysters from all over North America and fish from all over the world. The restaurant emphasizes small sharing-size portions that allow guests to try a wider variety of seafood. The flavors are dramatic and the presentations creative. The clam chowder is served in a small canning jar with a lid that is opened tableside. While it is clearly all about the seafood here, the menu also includes a prime New York Strip steak for those who just can't get out of the boat.
