Ate Lunch, Lobster Mac & Cheese with side salad before catching ferry back to Boston. Outdoor dining a must, weather permitting. Also, they have a killer Cheese & Lobster sandwich!

I like the Patio. We have lunch there almost each year because, with limited time, they always get our food out quickly and let us have separate checks. The menu is interesting, some good seafood and healthy salads, but not complex. I ordered the large...More
