This restaurant has a beautiful location of the waterfront with lovely views of restored revolutionary schooner on the Maritime Wharf. But we had a mixed experience for a light dinner here.

we ordered cocktails to start. The Dark and Stormy was excellent but a Mojito had only a few sprigs of mint and was rather tasteless.

We shared a plate of six raw oysters, two each from three different regions (west coast, local, and Virginia). They did not look all that attractive but tasted all right. The taste comparisons were interesting. However I wasn't too happy with the distress I experienced the entire next day.

I ordered just an appetizer portion of fried clams. They tasted good but were a bit chewy. My wife had an arugula and beet salad that was nondescript.

We had several better seafood meals on our Salem trip than here.

With the two cocktails, a glass of sparkling Cava, and the 2 appetizers our meal was $65.
