  1. I was really disappointed by everything on our last visit. Fried clams were all batter, no meat, roasted oysters were mediocre, and fries were overcooked.

    1. Good for a drink, then move on for food.

      1. I enjoyed their steamed mussels, which came with sullivan st bakery bread to sop up the sauce. My boyfriend loved their "ditch dog" It's not on the menu, but its a hot dog topped with mac and cheese. They also do half bottles of wine which is nice.

        1. We had dinner there a few months ago and really didn't think it was anything special in either the food or service departments.

          I'd try someplace else.

          1. FWIW, i love the place at brunch, not so sure about dinner. But if you want breakfast for dinner (who doesn't), the eggs benedict with chorizo are awesome
