Started off with a miserable hostess. No welcoming greeting, just "come on" and led us to our table, left menus and was off. Waitress was nice but did not have her act together. Waited 20 minutes for soup and salad. The salad was ok but the soup was questionable. It was supposed to be burgundy clam chowder but I saw no sign of clams, only mystery chunks. We were also apportioned one dinner roll apiece. Our request for additional rolls was met 15 minutes later. Now on to the entrees for which we waited and waited. My dining partner chose scallop and shrimp italiano. It was ok but a small portion. My entree was supposed to be lobster and crab imperial. Still can't figure out what it actually was. There was a scintilla of lobster and no crab. It can best be described as a burnt stuffing. Contained no cream sauce and was dry as a bone.
We will not be returning. Even the coke was off. Thankfully I had a groupon so I paid about $35 for this horror.
