2 dinners and 3 lunches in Portland in September

Hi! We'll be in Portland from NYC for 3 days / 2 nights in early September. Haven't been there in about 12 years. Looking to have one fancier dinner (birthday celebration) and one good but casual / moderately priced. Would also love to have fried clams and/or lobster in some form at least once.

Here are places I've been thinking. Would love thoughts to help narrow down or if I'm missing something un-missable.

Dinners-- Vignola, Grace or Outliers (but have seen some bad reviews on the boards), The Front Room. I feel like there's some fantastic place that I'm missing...

Lunches-- Susan's Fish n Chips, Gilbert's Chowder House, Fisherman's Grill, Days Lobster Pound, 3 sons lobster company (or worth making the trip to Gurnet Trading Co. in Brunswick?), and/or Standard Baking Co for sandwiches?

Thanks for any advice!
