This is definitely the place if you like mussels. In general, it has other seafood plates on the menu as well as a few meat dishes but their strength is in their mussels. The blue cheese and bacon are definitely worth trying.

A brilliant seafood restaurant/bar decorated in a nautical style without going too far toward tacky at all. You can tell the fresh is fresh the moment you walk in the door and the buttery/fishy smells hit you. The bar is a good size so that a few people can gather around it without ever intruding on the diners in the room. A real celebration of the sea and it's bounty!
