I pity those people who leave great reviews about the place as perhaps they might have never heard of Rustic Inn Crabhouse (4331 Ravenswood Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312, United) aka Heaven of seafood least to say ever dined at one. We haven't booked so were made to wait for the table for over 40min thinking we were owed the best! Place was definitely over crowded and was no better than any Hackney pub. Food..eerr after tasting the food it made me strongly question on whether their head chef is qualified for the job and proficient in all aspects of food preparation? My niece had her lobster macaroni cheese which she refused to eat after just first mouthful. Wasn't good, and she's not a fussy eater. We sent it back. I had fried lobster with recommended house specialty potato hash brown which came ..eerr little..charred?! My face dropped at the site so my mother had a bite to curtesy as the waitress was standing over me with this judgemental look on her face..Anything for solidarity here? My fried Lobster was beyond it horrible too and don't confuse me for being sulky here as I am a loyal lobster fan! It tasted rank though at least the meat was soft enough for me to cut through it. I left majority of it on the plate untouched. Mum's and sister's baked lobsters were mauled to death before it saw plates. Neither of us were amused at being charged almost $200 bill for the RUBBISH MEAL we DID NOT EAT!
The only dismal consolation was lobster bisque soup which I split with my niece. Was a little spicy though but that is ALL we ate that night at Joe's. Wish I had my $$$ BACK!
