Everyone down here knows the Station House. You want Maine lobster? You go to the Station House. They even have two-tiered pricing of lobsters based on when you're seated, with 6 PM being the dividing line. And their non-lobster entrees are top notch. Can never fault them on their food. We all ordered 2 pounders, steamed. They were expertly done, and were moist and sweet. But where they fell down was with the totally unprofessional service. There is no way that the servers were trained waiters. The "service" ranged from rushed to forgotten. If we were still pondering the menu when he came over to take an order, he seemed put out by it and disappeared for an inordinate period of time. We ordered two plates of oysters on the half shell and only one was brought. One cup of ordered chowder was forgotten altogether. The lobsters were long delayed. He never came over to see if we wanted another drink. Since the food was so good we delved into the crustaceans to keep down a rising temper. After dinner we were asked if we wanted coffee....not a word about dessert. I asked for a dessert menu and he told me he'd look for one and it was quite awhile before he returned with a few of them.
We were never asked for refills of the coffee. The desserts were first rate, however. When we finally got our check we were charged for a nonexistent cappuccino. I will say, however, that the valet parkers were spot on. In short, pretty expensive for amateur service. I've been here several times before going back at least ten years, and never experienced anything like it before. It was also on a Friday night when you'd figure they'd have their A team on deck.
Still.....that lobster! A WORD ABOUT ACCESSIBILITY: The Station House is fully accessible, and if you use a wheelchair or walker you will have no trouble getting from your car and through the restaurant.
