They have a great happy hour with $1 oysters and deals on other items as well. We had oysters and clams casino. They had a piano player there. We sat at the bar. Good wine options too. Old school feel which is cool.

Just top of the line for dining and/or drinking in AC. Nice crowd. A great break from the casino scene but just a quick cab ride away. Great drinks--on tap and house cocktails. Piano bar is great. Seafood is top of the line and this...More
