Excellent Lobster/Seafood Dinner with the cold platters of seafood, or hot seafood dishes, lamb or roast beef with pasta or rice or potato dishes, and leave room for desserts of many kinds. Beautiful venue for weddings, banquets, birthday parties etc.

I attended a private affair so depending on the function you should follow what your invite says or ask someone what you should wear. However don't go casual. It's an old school place but classy!
