This place looks new, and I was intrigued by their abundant Happy Hour offering and prices. They also have a location in Potomac, MD.
I first went for a couple of fresh local oysters for $1 apiece on Tuesdays. The last time I had local oysters was years ago at Black's; they were awful. These tasted fine, but are quite puny, so the price doesn't seem like such a good deal. Was this going to be the theme for the night? Oh yes it was the theme.
I went for crab hush puppies, 4 for $6. Hard fried on the outside until dark and crunchy, but more like a moist croquette on the inside than a fluffy or bready hush puppy. They were good, low on crab flavor, served with more honey butter than I could possibly use.
I then got the grilled oysters, three oysters, each in a different preparation for $6. The first was a brown butter brandy that looked like curdled peanut butter and tasted awful. The second was a tangy relish that completely dominated the oyster. the last was a nice Rockefeller prep that was a classic.
A $4 house sangria was very delicious. But it was half ice and a very small amount of sangria.
You won't spend as much at Happy Hour, but it still manages to seem like not such a good deal.
