The service is always slow at this place, but the weekend before last they hit a new low! We had a yen for steamers and decided to try it for lunch despite mediocre results in the past. NEVER AGAIN! There were very few customers there when we arrived. Nevertheless it took the better part of 15 minutes for our waiter to acknowledge our presence. Drinks were slow in coming, and his return to take our order was even slower. We ordered - mostly steamers. Then 15 minutes later he returned to inform us that they had not received any steamers that day. We should have known to leave, but were hungry and changed our orders. 30-40 minutes later the food had still not arrived. Fuming, I told the waiter from hell to cancel our food order and bring the check. At that point he went to the kitchen and instantly brought out our food - which was lousey!
NEVER order the Shrimp/Crab "Stew"! It is overpriced drool! A lukewarm broth, mine had exactly ONE small shrimp and a few tiny bits of crab, and nothing else. This place may have been good once, but no more. Go around the corner to the Thirsty Lion or Kells instead.
