Since its inception, Port O’ Call has been one of the island’s most reliably excellent restaurants. It’s hugely popular among locals for its killer power lunch (you’ll see brokers wheeling and dealing at each table); those same island bigwigs return after work to crowd the black granite bar at happy hour, and smoke cigars on the shady sidewalk patio. The menu features the usual suspects—steaks, seafood and pasta dishes. But several times a night, the day’s fresh catch is paraded through the dining room, and after oohing and aahing at how fresh and beautiful the seafood is, most order that and are quite happy they did. From September through March, try a spiny lobster—with no claws and a bigger tail, it’s a sweeter version of New England’s finest. Tip: Portions here are HUGE, so don’t be shy about sharing.
