We had dinner at this restaurant and were extremely disapppointed. When we first arrived there was maybe 5-6 employees sitting around the parking lot which is a bit uncomfortable for people who are arriving for dinner. Loittering employees around dinner time isn't very classy. Some other dinner guests passed the entrance by mistake but instead of helping; the employees proceeded to shout(in their local dialect) from where they were idly perched. We eventually walked toward them and led them the right way.
The bread basket had some soft rolls that seemed very cheap and processed.
The seafood tempura is soggy, battered seafood which was tasteless and oily. Tempura is supposed to be a light, crispy batter.
The lobster was also lacking in flavor. The steak was cooked exactly how we wanted but the peppercorn sauce was not enjoyable. It was too salty and cold by the time the food was served.
2 of our party got serious food poisoning from creole caesar salads. It was the only thing they both ate in common that entire day and they were sick for a full 24 hour period. I am not sure if the shrimp or anchovies were going bad but food poisoning is not enjoyable on vacation.
While the service is decent, the attention was too much at some points. When our entrees were served 4 different servers asked how the meals were within a three minute period. Which obviously breaks the party's conversation so that wasn't very tactful of the employees. I barely had a taste at that point. One of the servers actually told my husband to take his USED butter knife back so he could use it for his appetizers but she took away our bread plates before we were done our first cocktail. Is it that hard to bring the table some clean knives????
We read some rave reviews but it did not live up to the hype. It is also pricey so we did feel a bit cheated. Side orders need to be beefed up as well. Seahorse Inn has a long way to go to be top class restaurant.
