Three floors of brick walls and warm lighting set the scene for a veritable voyage of seasonal small plates, fine wines, and remarkable presentation.

Perched on the banks of the Merrimac River, looking toward the Atlantic, this seafood institution also boasts a killer brunch menu. Lobster and brie omelets, breakfast sliders, farmstand frittatas, oh my! Go classic, get creative, have a lobster roll for breakfast—why not?
