Other than Arrows and probably the restaurant at the White Barn Inn which might prefer jackets (we're not going to either one), how do people typically dress for dinner if they're not at a lobster pound or seafood shack? Do people tend to wear jeans and shorts (probably with collared shirts) everywhere or when they say business casual, people really do wear slacks. Let's say, MC Perkins, Angelina's, Front Porch and Katie's in Ogunquit, Varano's in Wells, and One Dock at Kennebunkport Inn. How many of these would lean toward slacks? To me steak places are almost always business casual - is it any differenty by the coast? I love to go casual whenever I can, but also try to respect a restaurant's wishes.
