A massive granite building that dates back to 1840 houses this spot, which is made up of three floors dedicated to seafood and whiskey. Trading Post is divided into distinct sections: A cozy whiskey bar’s in the cellar; the main floor includes high-top tables and a few flat-screen TV screens; and other nooks and crannies make way for private parties and large groups. The menu is filled with raw seafood and enormous sharing decks with chilled lobster, oysters, and jumbo shrimp. Creamy seafood chowder will send you straight to New England, and the namesake black Angus burger is a standout. Cheese plates and classic desserts warm apple cobbler served with burnt-sugar ice cream or a brownie sundae help define the otherwise eclectic restaurant as purely American. Just make sure to enjoy a drink with a rare whiskey or bourbon.
