To start, we had the Seafood, and New England Clam Chowder. In terms of flavour both soups were packed with lots of fresh seafood goodness!
Moving on, we had mussels, clams, fritz, and raw fanny bay oysters with their in-house signature sauces, Watermelon Chili, Apple Cider Mignonette, Mango Habanero, and Signature Cocktail Sauce. Our favourite is the mussels. They were gigantic, and so juicy when biting down on them. Of course the raw oysters is crazy fresh too! We always do a round of oysters!
Last we had to fried oysters. One of our friends wanted to try one more dish. We ordered this thinking it would be bite size like the raw oysters but these were gigantic and super filling. If we weren't all nearly full, we may have enjoyed this more!
