Foursquare Tips

  • The free Foursquare check-in side dish doesn't include their lobster mac and cheese. :'(
  • $1 oysters and cheap, yet very good, food from 5:30-7pm every day!!!
  • Best lobster roll variation ever. Chef Lawrence Edelman does wonders with skate too. -Seth Caro, Top Chef Just Desserts
  • Grab a seat at the bar, order the mini clambake with a glass of wine and imagine you are out on Long Island at the beach. The oysters here are the bomb!
  • Impeccable service and manners by the staff.
  • Great atmosphere, branding by Louise Fili!
  • This is our favorite restaurant in NYC, and the skate dish is our consistent go-to entre. For appetizers, the seared calamari is consistently good. Rich makes a good dirty martini with Hedrick's.
