We had dinner there last night (Friday nite), and the place was empty. I wondered why and attributed it to the goings-on downtown. I ordered lobster with the two sides being salad and sweet potato fries. Husband ordered oysters with baked potato and chowder. Sister ordered the Shrimp Fest. My lobster was watery,leaving a puddle under it, and not broiled, just boiled. The portion was about 4 small bites, if that, and I'm not exaggerating. It was mushy and tasteless. The drawn "butter" was almost cold, the sweet potato fries were cold and tasteless, with absolutely no seasoning. The dipping sauce for the sweet potatoes was inedible. I took one bite and almost gagged. Waitress acted offended when I told her I couldn't eat it. I thought it was spoiled. She said it was the "signature recipe," a cajun recipe that they have used for years. She even brought the recipe out and read off the ingredients, which included tarragon, rosemary, etc. Whatever it was, it was not good. I also ordered a shrimp plate from the appetizer menu, for $9.00, which was actually a better meal than the lobster. The salad was boring, as was the dressing. I ate a small portion of salad, but it was basically lettuce and a mound of grated carrots, My husband liked his oysters and baked potato, and my sister said her shrimp fest was "okay," but that she thought the sauce for the sweet potatoes was spoiled, and that a few of her grilled shrimp had the same flavor as the dipping sauce. No atmosphere, and we were the only people in the restaurant, on a Friday night. There were several people in the bar, which I noticed as I left the restaurant. The bread was good, the service was fast, and the waitress was nice, but seemed to be shocked when I didn't like the dipping sauce. The lobster was $25.95, for 3 or 4 bites...Unbelievable! Mostly shellfish on the menu, but no selection of fish like I assumed.
