So, I knew it wasn't going to be gourmet. There have many times that my boyfriends mother has recommended the eagles nest to us, stating how good their seafood platter was and that it was a great meal to split. So, we decided to try it out.
We had called in our order after checking the menu out online. Their seafood platter was listed for 23.95 and said it came with haddock, shrimp, scallops and clams, fries, and cole slaw. We arrived there a few minutes early and waited in our car, since there was NO room to wait inside. (It is a very small diner with maybe 20 seats)
The service was not bad considering they have one cook, one waitress, and one extra hand working there. When we finally got our food to go, we were rang up and the total came to $31.98! I did not say anything about the price difference... Sometimes things don't get updated as quickly online?
When we got it home (maybe 10 minutes later), we started to get into it. Though the portions of seafood were definitely enough for both of us, the food was not worth it at all. The fried seafood was all in one box and the French fries in the other. The food was all stuck together. In total there were 8 scallops, a handful of baby shrimp, a handful of clams, and a filet of haddock. The scallops were so rubbery and tasted like nothing. The clams were slimy and gross. The shrimp had no flavor. The haddock was the same. All the seafood was over cooked, tasteless, and greasy. The French fries were the best part of this meal.
I would not recommend the eagles nest to anybody looking for seafood. Absolutely the worst I've ever had in my life... Hands down.
