  • Marissa S.Delicious lobster roll and Sancerre in San Francisco.

    55555 by Marissa S.

  • Bogo RTheir oyster game is on point. The only true con is an unfortunate lack of martinis. Strong local beer selection though.

    55555 by Bogo R

  • Jonathan IVery disappointed. Was violently ill shortly after my visit. Emailed and got very little sympathy. Not even an offer of a refund. Been before and had loved this place.

    55555 by Josue C

    55555 by Hannah G.

  • Ryan L.Great oysters and extensive beer list, though service was slow and the main courses were just okay.

    55555 by Ryan L.

  • Wilson JFish dishes on the over complicated side and detrimental to the produce. Stick to the oyster and beer selection.

    55555 by Wilson J

    55555 by Colin W.

    55555 by Gayle c

  • Missy IFood is amazing but super expensive (no lunch specials!) Prices listed online and on the app are less than they really were on the menu. Environment was pretty basic; service was great.

    55555 by Missy I

  • Michel Alexandre AMy first time there, but my clam chowder and home-made seafood pasta with shrimps and scallops are both excellent. And that Sauvignon Blanc wine... I don't normally like white wine, even.

    55555 by Michel Alexandre A

  • Kay S.amazing food. yummy coctails. fast service. I ordered the sea scallops.

    55555 by Kay S.

  • Ashleigh G.I was really disappointed and had higher expectations. Very overpriced and mediocre food. Food truck lobster rolls are better than these.

    22222 by Ashleigh G.

  • Sophyan JulioLobster roll was underwhelming

    22222 by Sophyan Julio

    55555 by Angel Fu

  • Chuck RoslofTuna tartare.

    55555 by Chuck Roslof

  • Willem V.A little bit of Rhode Island in San Francisco.

    55555 by Willem V.

  • Madam W.Free house made crisps with aioli & crispy calamari with Thai spicy sauce were best. Skip Branzino Crudo & mussels. Get chocolate fondant & strawberry shortcake

    55555 by Amy B.

  • Michael T.An ultimate lobster roll on brioche. Perfect way to end a cleanse ;)

    55555 by Michael T.

  • Mark H.It's all about the lobster roll and beer selection. Just the right amount of seasoning and mayo make this lobster roll the best one west of Cambridge.

    55555 by Mark H.

  • Christopher B.The lobster roll is the house specialty, but for my money the "Angels on Horseback" (bacon-wrapped baked oysters) win every time.

    55555 by Christopher B.

  • Dave CummingsGood oysters. Good tuna tartare.

    55555 by Dave Cummings

  • Ashley M.Pretty sure these are the most potato tasting French fries I've had in awhile. The beer and wine list is huge, whatever cocktail I had tastes like cool-aid, in a good way, and free chips with aioli.

    55555 by Ashley M.
