Local news reports the State Street Saloon, along with two adjacent buildings caught fire and totally collapsed Sunday April 9th. Fortunately, only one minor injury was reported.

A little dark inside but a local hangout. Great service, good food, moderate prices. Generous drink portions, order the pearl harbor.

Outstanding lunch/ My wife had the medium lobster roll and loved it. I had the best seafood chowder I have ever had, absolutely loaded with seafood. The chicken wings were very good as well. We will definitely be returning.

Service was slow and it was not that busy. Having said that seafood chowder was excellent. Lobster roll and lobster mac and cheese also very good with plenty of lobster.
