“If you like raw oysters, this place is your spot. While it can get a little noisy on the weekend, it's a great place for a casual meal. Great oysters and a variety of other options. (Just don't go if you have strep throat.)”

“Friendly, small place with a great selection of draft beers and wine, and a small but nice menu of German-inspired food. Lots of sausage. Vegetarian options too! You can buy bottles to take home for 25% off. On nice days they open up the garage doors in front and let the breeze flow in. Lovely afternoon spot. ”
