During the summer they have a fantastic outdoor casual seating area. Fantastically classic chowder. Great inexpensive place to swing by for a quick dinner
I've only had Oysters a couple of times, but this by was far my best experience with them. That had a decent beer selection, and a full bar. We had to wait an extra 5 minutes for our bread but it was totally worth it when a basket of steaming sourdough bread was brought to us. Delicious. As I said, i'm not a huge Oyster connoisseur but these tasted fantastic.
Nice size dishes. Presentation is everything. Hadn't been here in years. Took some out of town friends to check out our seafood.
This place has been in Portland for Forever and you can tell the interior is very eclectic. Its a little dark inside or at least the area we were seated in was. Very enjoyable dinner. Oysters were excellant, very clean!
Great local place that is unpretentious, family restaurant with honest food.
If you like raw oysters on the half-shell, this it he place for you. Also, if you like historic restaurants with old celeb photos on the walls. This one has a black-and-white shot of Casey Stengel when he was managing the Oakland Oaks. That was a long time ago -- you could look it up. Martinis go great with raw oysters. So do Negronis and beer on tap. They have all. If you like your shellfish cooked, try the Oysters Rockefeller, the Steamed Manila Clams or the Oyster Stews. All excellent.
Great Place with history - ode to oyster pioneers. Batter on oysters is perfection, they know the perfect temperature for deep frying. The service is excellent and very attentive.
The service is very friendly and helpful. They will let you wander and view all the beautiful plates and pictures on the walls. Food was served hot, or cold as in the oysters. I am going back very soon.
Great service & great food. Had the Admiral's Platter (big enough for two of us to share) and also shared a large, steaming bowl of fresh clam chowder. I now understand why they say this is the best chowder in Portland! Our server was attentive and friendly. The host who sat us outside have us the rundown on the specials before our server even got to us, so extra points for punctuality
