If you haven't been here go, if you have go back! Small oyster selection but really good quality. I shared Raspberry points super tasty. They also have a $9.99 burger lunch. I guess its quieter in Georgetown during the summer but this place its really good. I ate down at the waterfront yesterday it was very busy but like fast food compared to this place. Service here was great. The young lady that waited on us was happy, funny and helpful. The portions and price are very good as well. We need more restaurants like this in Georgetown. i hope to get in for dinner next week. More
