If I could give this place 2.5 stars I would. Why? Here's the breakdown:
- we scored a seat on the little balcony, which is perfect for people watching and enjoying the nice weather. Def what brought us in initially.
- while my boo didn't think the waitress checked on us enough I thought it was good. She was friendly and efficient.
- the food! The food was just bad..woof. From the raw dough on the FRIED (yes fried - how is it even possible to come out raw from hot oil) calamari to the lack of flavor in the entrees. While the lobster pasta was generous with the lobster that was the only good thing about it. While the sauce was supposed to be in white wine it was in butter, cream, and some sort of tomato. What happened here? And the Captains - while the fries were good (I mean they're fries - you can't go wrong) the shrimp was overdone and the scallops undercooked. Basically it was a plate of blah fried items.
Our bill came out to $91 for 2 people - what. A waste of money and a waste of a Friday night dinner. Should have gone to the Chard House.
Friday night around 8. Â No wait; we were seated right away. Â Atmosphere was good. Â The bar area seemed bustling but I did not eat there as it was full. Â Service was good not great. Â Waiter was very polite and did recommend some good choices. Â I split a dozen oysters with my father. Â Very, very good. Â The clam chowder was good to excellent but not something I would have to make a special trip back for. Â I ordered the Crab Norfolk. Â I thought it was very good. Â It is basic. Â Blue Crab in a bowl with butter. Â Right in my wheelhouse. Â So it worked out well. Â My dad ordered the Caccuicco. Â Very good in itself. Â They nailed the sauce. Â It was excellent. Â However, the clams, shrimp, and calamari in it was overcooked. Â Overall, I would give a 3.5 out of 5. Â The martinis and mixed drinks we had were very good also.Review Source:
