Get plenty of quality seafood, drinks and business done during lunch hours here. Large enough you can usually get a table for 4 without delay.

A prolonged layover between flights meant we had time to take the bus into the city to have lunch. Docks looked nice so we went in. We were the only people in there who were tourists - the rest were all business people having business...More

Here with a group. I had the lobster roll which was excellent. Lots of chunks of fresh lobster served with equally excellent fries. Everyone in the group enjoyed what they ordered. The service was excellent.
