The Clam Chowder was a little meh and nothing special.
Stuffed fish? It was quite amazing. The fish was moist, and tasted great with the creamy spinach, crab, and shrimp stuffing. With a hint of acidity from the tomatoes, my first stuffed flounder was a winner.
The salmon and the crab cakes were my friends’ dishes. I didn’t try the salmon, so I have no say in it, but the crab cakes were awful, to be honest. My heart broke watching my friend trying to stuff it in, full of regret of his decision. There were pieces of what I believe were crab shells in it! It also tasted a little off, the kind of taste you get from not so fresh seafood. We were extremely disappointed.
Yet another disappointment came when we were presented with our desserts. We were given two choices – their “famous” key lime pie or ice cream. I would not have minded had at least one of them been good. Sadly, the key lime pie was so sweet we all cringed, and the ice cream was the kind you could pay two dollars for a liter or something. We all picked at them and put our spoons down.
The restaurant is beautiful with its fancy lights and bar, definitely a place one could go for special occasions. But at the end of the day, the most important thing is the food. Yes, the stuffed fish was great, but it was certainly not delicious enough to make any of us want to go back after all the other awful parts of our dinner.
