About This Spot
There has not been a high tide on Adams Street since 1902, when the mighty storm swept through the TD&W Handle Company like a giant bucket of sea water. Today, the building combines the charm of history with all the comfort and delight of modern accommodation. From spacious dining rooms to a breezy patio oasis and elegant upstairs bar, and of course, the best food the sea has to offer. Where the sunshine gladdens, the rain falls to bless, and there, beneath the blue sky, we dream of old friends and new adventures. Host your next event or celebration at The Optimist: our light-filled, semi-private dining area is perfect for corporate functions, receptions, showers, and parties. If you wish to host a wedding or completely private event, The Optimist can be closed to the public for you.
