    I met a business contact for lunch here on a rainy weekday. It was very quiet except for what appeared to be a few other business lunches. The waitress brought us menus, got us a drink and proceeded to ignore us for 30 minutes. We had our laptops out and were discussing business, but out drinks went dry and we had to get a passing busboy to get her. The food was OK. I'm sure its a pleasant outdoor spot for a drink and some apetizers in the summertime. Otherwise....skip it.

    Lobster in lobster roll overcooked and tough. Baked clams tasted good and had large chunks of clam, however they were the texture of rubber bands, and couldn't be chewed. Service was good, but with the poor quality of the food by meansade up for an expensive meal that was mediocre at best.
