Had the baked lobster dish. Too much pasta. I was afraid that I was going to leave some of the other baked fish behind. The mussels were on the small side. Maybe they needed more exercise. (My weak attempt at humor). I hope they keep the baked dishes on their main menu. I have ordered the 7 oz. bleu steak... More

We are invited to eat at this place when we visited a Pastor friend from Dalton First United Methodist Church, Rev. Kenny Ott. Service was warm and great, While food was mid priced, the lobster and the shrimp were good.

A restaurant chain seems to be a good as it's local management. I've been to a couple out of state that were great. This is one to avoid for the reasons in my title.

I found the servers here to be outgoing and friend, but more, they are knowledgable and will share tips to save money and get value. Always a great trip.

The commercials seen on tv make the meals look delicious, but they are far from it. The last 2 times we have eaten at the Blobster( That's what my spouse calls it), we have gotten sick. There are much better choices. Kinda surprised , the blobster is still around.I don't see what the attraction is for this restuarant.
