We visited The Tamarack Saturday July 31, 2010 and left extremely disappointed. The staff was rude and less than professional, wearing tank tops and ripped jeans. What happened to wearing nice polos with the restaurant name??
The small building behind the restaurant which used to be a indoor seating area for diners looking to get inside, cool down and away from the bugs, is now a pizza joint. We walked in to sit and eat with out the bugs, still a nice amenity. The floors were sticky and filthy, the bathrooms were disgusting, and the closing employees just left us alone in there. We could have gone behind the counter and raided their refrigerators. They didn't even acknowledge our existence or notify us they were closing at 9pm.
The food was okay, a good deal for 2 for $20 lobster rolls. My wife asked for a frappe, the girl looked nervous, glanced at the machine and said they were out of milk. What? Out of milk? How? We think they may have cleaned and broke down the machines and didn't want to reassemble the machine and dirty it again.
Overall we were severely disappointed, it seems the restaurant has quickly slid down hill with no regard to maintaining the grounds, food quality, staff appearance, or friendliness. I get the business choice for a pizza joint in the area, a nice tourist attraction, but please clean the place.
Unfortunately, and I am sorry to say, 2010's Tamarack is NOT the Tamarack of years past. We will not be visiting The Tamarack again.
