Sea Basket - Wiscasset, ME

I was at The Sea Basket a few weeks ago after many reccomendations from here. I was sorely disappointed. My friend and I got a lobster roll, lobster stew, fried clams, and some other stuff that slips my mind. Because it was so boring! The lobster stew had no flavor besides milk. The lobster taste wasn't there at all. The lobster chunks were even flavorless, as though they had been frozen for eternity. The fried clams were fishy tasting, not that fresh briney taste. They were also a bit gritty and muddy tasting. The batter was like eating plain, uncooked flour. The lobster roll, which was expensive, was not up to par with several I had at half the price at other places. The only tasty thing were the onion rings and they would have been even better without the tastless batter. We weren't the only disappointed customers that day. I saw and heard several other tables complaining. I hope it was just a bad day, but I doubt it.
