Initially this second season showed great promise. A new exec chef was brought in who presented some truly original entrees and some stunning plates. I had an excellent meal with friends back in late June; whole grilled fish and scallops w/ roe attached. I have since been back several times and to my dismay watched the scene there devolve into a rowdy bar crowd of mostly young people. The owners seem to be either rank amateurs or perhaps oblivious to the fact that they are well along in the process of dismantling their own business. I witnessed several inebriated patrons screaming obscenities at the TV while the Bruins game was on while both owners stood idly by. Several people dining with younger children were clearly quite distressed by what was happening under the noses of the owners.
Although the dining room is often packed the menu has clearly been 'dumbed down' and the place now caters to the lowest common denominator. It might still be a great place to go for drinks early in the evening but extreme care should be taken by anyone looking for a pleasant meal. The innovative menu has been stripped bare and I'm afraid that the Port Hunter (named after a local shipwreck, I learned) has just sunk a second time. I hope the chef finds an island venue more appreciative of his talents. His skill is being wasted at the Port Hunter
