Black Pearl- Major Disappoinment

After reading much about this place, I went afterwork and placed a take out order. I ordered the lobster bisque, the baked clams, and the fried clams.

Portions were relatively small. The soup amounted to a cup and looked so brown you could have sworn it was gravy. Tasted ok, good amount of lobster in it, but doesnt come close to the much superior Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. The baked clams were the biggest disppointment. Got five of the most driest, overcooked baked clams ive ever had. Tasted like Matlaws frozen stuffed clams, so bad i ate only 2 and threw the rest out. However, the Ipswich
fried clams were pretty damn good as were the fries that were with them. But at $18.95 just overpriced. the soup and baked clams were each $9.95 each. So with a bill totaling over $40.00 i really paid that amount for a fried clam dinner. I'm sure there is a better meal to be had here but i dont think i'd be running back anytime soon.

Anyone else had similar or better experience?
