    I keep coming back because it feels like the perfect place to have oysters in the area.

    Market veggie plate is not to be missed. French fries are tasty. Desserts are also secret hits.

    The skate was a very generous portion and incredible. One of the top meals I've ever had in BK.

    Don't come hungry, the food is good but either we ordered from the children's menu or the portions are small!

    Tip! "Tuna rings" are not actually real, and they will giggle at you if you try to order them.

    As Public Enemy sang "Don't believe the hype." Clam roll is nothing special and overpriced. Fries are separate at $5/order. Decent selection of beer. Service is ok. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
