After reading Trip Advisor reviews, I chose this location for two of us to go for dinner. It's a beautiful warm day and the patio was enticing.
When we arrived, there were two tables free outside and many tables available inside. It still took staff about five minutes to seat us.
It was 10-15 minutes before the server took our drink and food order and while we were speaking, she stared down the street towards another restaurant's patio. She didn't write anything down but then had to ask questions about what we had ordered for our one appy and two entrees. They weren't clarifying questions, it was reasking what we had ordered. I should have cut and run at this point, but I still clung to what I had read in reviews.
We ordered mussels to start and then the lobster taco and burger for mains. The drinks took 15 more minutes to arrive and the mussels an additional 30. It was not particularly busy and the server was just taking a lot of time to do what I have seen others do with much more hustle.
The mussels were not great and came cold. We waited another 25 minutes for our mains. The burger was so cold that the skimpy cheese was hardened on the patty and the lobster tacos were unremarkable at best.
Our server said little more than 15 words to us during the 1.5 hours we were there and I went and stood at the desk until I got my bill.
Won't be back and certainly wasn't worth the money on any front- food or service.
