Ok, this was my third time at Deckhand Oyster Bar. I go there for the oysters, because they taste good.
Today, I got there around 7:45PM. The place was packed. I got a table by myself around 8PM and told the waitress I wanted a dozen raw oysters and later, I would want to have frog legs for my main entree. I was specific that I wanted to have time to enjoy the oysters before the frog legs arrive. She said "of course", like I'm some sort of weirdo for even pointing that out.
After I'm done with my 4th oyster, the frog legs arrive. I'm a bit frustrated because now I have to rush the oysters if I want to get warm frog legs, but I'm accepting it because the restaurant is full and managing the kitchen is probably not easy.
So I gulp down the oysters, which were very good by the way, and I start the frog legs. They are extremely chewy and taste very blend. I've had frog legs in many places and I know this isn't right. I tell my waitress about it. She looks at me like I'm a difficult customer and says "so what do you want me to do about it?". I ask her nicely if I can get something else. She responds that she has to check. Wow, really?
She finally comes back 5 or 10 minutes later and lets me chose something else. I ask if they have grilled shrimps and she says, yes, it's on the menu. Well, I can't find it on the menu. She looks pissed. She repeats that it's on the menu. Finally I ask her to show me and she can't find them either at first. She finally points at the shrimp kabobs. I order them, thinking that I'm going to get grilled shrimps on a skewer or something like that. Instead, I get this meal where shrimps have obviously not been grilled but more like cooked in a real greasy sauce, sort of blackened and the kabobs are actually veggies skewers, also dripping in oil. But it tastes ok, sort of...
At no point does she come to refill my iced tea. Another waitress offers to do that, but never comes back.
Finally, as I'm about to get my check, I hear the table next to mine complain to the manager that their food tasted bad and pretty much refuse to pay. The Manager comps their meal. I'm thinking that's what I should have done too. But I pay my bill and I leave, not very happy. I leave a meager tip as I really think that my waitress was bordeline rude with me.
I don't think I'm coming back there, unless it's only for oysters
