Imagine Tommy Bahama designing a chain restaurant and you'll have a good sense of Plantation. Stopped in for lunch. Atmosphere was a bit phony-creep, trying to be upscale. Waiter was hopeless. Food seems uneven. My wife had a first-rate Reuben sandwich. I ordered the crab-cake platter. Now, I routinely complain that portions are too large in American restaurants (as we Americans are too large), but I felt that I needed to send out a search party to find the crab-cake on my plate. And while it was well-flavored, it was actually more of a deviled crab cake with a bit of lump crabmeat mixed in. Plantation does a few different kinds of fries, and they're good. My sense: Okay for a lunchtime sandwich if, say, you're returning from a visit to Barnegat Light...but I wouldn't risk it at dinner. Description could read: "Perfect for oblivious yuppies who never got the food memo."
