Group Bookings

All Hands on Deck!

Our tradition is the Oyster Bar, but Maritime hospitality means we can’t resist a good party. With five private and semi-private areas, we can accommodate up to 400 guests at a time, with over the top oyster bar services and a strong, supporting libation roster. Ask us about customized menu options including non-seafood and vegetarian options to ensure there is something for everyone.
