Wife and I just recently visited the Rowes Wharf Sea Grille for a late afternoon snack. The calamari and salad we ordered were delicious while the wine list is more than adequate. Enjoy.

At the time we were there, there was no music. The Summer series had not started. Check the website for Boston Harbor Hotel. That is where I found the schedule.
