blt fish shack--yuck!

went to blt fish shack the other night and was super disappointed. We started with six clams and were served one bad clam (it smelled awful and was clearly rotten) and the crab cake, which was filled with breading and very little crab meat for $18. We also chose to try the shrimp gazpacho, which was nothing more than thick tomato juice with ketchup with 4 TINY, flavorless shrimp! Furthermore, I distinctly ordered a cup (repeated myself twice) and received a bowl, which I was then charged for!?

My husband had the cod as well and again, clearly requested rice (repeated for clarity) for his starch only to get roasted potatoes! Needless to say, the service was awful...not only could they not get our orders correct, but were premature in clearing our plates and non-attentive in refilling our drinks.

We didn't even attempt dessert. We were really excited about the laid back atmosphere, but are definitely not eager to return (and probably will not return)...especially for that type of money! I would sooner go to Mermaid Inn, Mary's or Pearle.
