First Visit To Boston-Food plan almost complete

New CH here with my first post. I have been reviewing threads for months now as I begin to explore food throughout the country but this is my first participation.

I am visiting Boston for American Craft Beer Fest on Saturday June 4 at the Seaport Trade center ( I have done my reading and almost completed my food itinerary. The wife and I will be staying at the Bullfinch Hotel and will walk or cab to all destinations.

Friday: we arrive in the evening and wanted a causal bar with good food. Current Choice is the Back Bay social Club. Read that they have a great burger. We are looking for maybe a good casual bar and maybe dessert afterwards. Craft beer for me and unique cocktails for the wife are a plus.

Breakfast: Need a suggestion
Lunch: We want lobster rolls. Everything I read discusses neptune for seafood, but is this the best option?
Dinner: Steak is my food of choice so I made reservations at MOO... In South Florida I have eaten at all the major steakhouse chains including Abe & Louies and wanted to trying something unique to Boston.

Sunday morning we only have time for some early morning exploring and Brunch. Craigie on Main is the leader.

Thank you for your suggestions and let me know if anyone needs tips on South Florida.
