Fodor's Review

Seafood, service and panache are pretty as a pearl at this homage to yacht clubs on the Northeast Coast. This is a place where fresh market fish gets punched up with Texas style and zing. Case-in-point, the crab Louie served as luscious lumps of crab meat piled upon a few crunchy fried green tomatoes and served with lemony aioli. Market fish selections are ordered to your preparation preference and served with either spicy garlic-herb salsa verde or red quajillo chile

sauce. Sit at the cold bar and watch expert oyster shuckers pop open a selection of fresh ouster on the half shell for you. At night, the patio is the place to people-watch on South Congress with a boozy island-style cocktail in hand.
