Fodor's Review

This tiny seafood joint easily offers the quirkiest dining experience in Downtown. Almost the entire room is taken up by a boat-prow bar. At the helm, owner Apollo Naff acts as server, bartender, cashier, and host. He's created a convivial environment where fellow diners become fast friends over plates of Alaska oysters and other briny bites such as crab cake po'boy, seafood chowder, and seared scallops in umami sauce. Oysters are harvested in Halibut Cove and Kachemak Bay, cost $3 each, and can be prepared one of 10 ways–-from the classic casino and Rockefeller to some intriguing Mexican treatments inspired by Naff's hometown of Tijuana.
