Fodor's Review

The watchword is simplicity at this chic take on the shellfish shacks of New England. A half-dozen oyster varieties are available daily on the half shell, both from the West Coast and local Virginia waters, alongside another handful of daily fish specials, from bouillabaisse to coffee-rubbed tuna, and a "meat-and-two" daily special for those who prefer turf to surf. Don't be shy about asking for seconds on the complimentary baking chocolate presented along with your check—the
