Have written about ORT before. It has been a while so, time for an update. Tried it again last week. Pros. Most portions are still large. atmosphere is cordial, views are interesting. Seating is roomy and comfortable. Four of us tried different menu items Mahi Mahi special, Fish and Chips, Fried Shrimp and Broiled Cod. Entrees come with a choice of Vegetable and starch. Fried Calamari for an appetizer. Clam Chowder and lobster bisque was also tried. Cons. Menu is getting pricey for this venue. All of the entrees were fair to good. Nothing was outstanding. All of the fish and veggies tasted previously frozen. Rice was fine. Cod and Mahi were good, not fresh, but good. Shrimp were good. Not as large as you would expect. Fish and Chips were not fillets and too many fries filled the plates. Slaw was OK. The Calamari New York Style was good but soggy because the pickled peppers were wet and mushy. App. portions have been downsized considerably. Soups were good. Chowder was loaded with potatoes not much in the way of clams. Would I go again, sure if I am in the neighborhood. I wouldn't go out of my way though. There are better choices close by.
