A group of us ate at this restaurant last week and the food was, at best mediocre. While another friend ate here recently and had such gourmet delights as a turkey club and enjoyed it, we had seafood and found it wanting. The table ordered a plate of steamers and mussels, and while the mussels were OK , the steamers were not. They must have been left out or not freshly caught as they were tough, sour tasting and caused gastric distress in at least two individuals. It was several hours before the rocky stomachs settled down, and it felt like a mild case of food poisoning. In this part of the world there is NO excuse for bad seafood. The stuffed lobster was delivered with scallops and shrimp and a "seafood mix" as described by the waitress, which was more like breadcrumbs and some mysterious seafood add ins. The scallops were smallish sea scallops and marginally fresh. They did not appear to be of the wet scallop ilk, but it was hard to tell. The shimp were not fresh, New England or Gulf shrimp but tasted of the farm raised Asian variety, smallish soggy, and not very flavorful. After more than a few delightful dinners on the Coast of Maine, this did not measure up even close to one of those Maine experiences. The service was good and the waitress was attentive, within a range, as she appeared to be busy with others and had to attend to them all. We did not sample the Sunday Brunch (so what happened to the rest of the days of the week??) Buffet, but others have told me it is good, if a bit pricy. If you enjoy an ocean view and are not on the Coast of Maine or in Newport, RI, then this is an acceptable little getaway from the hub bub of Boston, just watch the shellfish here..
