Sam Miller's Restaurant Review

: You’ll find the well-established setting of the exposed-brick dining room conducive to intimate lunches just as the clubby oyster bar is ideal for fun brunches with a Belgium waffle club, burgers and oyster shooters. Come dinner, a romantic mood ensues with luxe offerings like crab cakes, shrimp imperial, filet Oscar and live Maine lobsters while entrée salads and grilled sandwiches are also available. The restaurant burns the candle on both ends with weekday breakfasts featuring omelets and hot steel cut oatmeal as well as a weekend late-night menu including chicken wings, Baja fish tacos, calamari and fried oysters with hand-cut french fries.
