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
