Found this restaurant to be very disappointing. My husband thought we'd give it a try since it was close to where we were staying but guess we should have known by how empty it was that it wasn't going to be good. I was keen to try it as I have a group of friends to take out for dinner later this month and had thought Number 8 could be a good option. Well sadly it's not and we won't be going there. Our meal was very average and not at all what I would expect for the prices they charge (read not cheap!) Seafood chowder was so hot (seemed like it may have been nuked in the microwave) that it couldn't be eaten for ages and getting a burnt mouth was not a pleasant experience. Breads and dips were ok although nothing marvellous and scallop entree appeared to have had the scallops incinerated as they were barely recognisable, almost non existent. Chicken breast wrapped in bacon was the only enjoyable part of the meal. Dessert was dreadful, fruit salad with some sort of grainy custard (custard should always be velvety smooth!) and overwhipped cream in a cocktail glass that was nearly overflowing making it very difficult to eat. Not impressed and wouldn't rush back. Service from our young waitress was good and she was certainly trying hard but unfortunately it won't matter how hard she tries if the food isn't good.
