Dinardos--terrible

ArtBeans | Jun 4, 2006 12:08 AM

Just had dinner at Dinardo's and it was terrible. Ordered a crab/shrimp bisque and it was just too starchy and had no crab or shrimp in it. Ordered 5 steamed crabs and after about 30 minutes, they came out COLD! When I asked the waitress if they had fresh steamed crabs, she responded, "of course they're cold, they've been sitting in there for 45 minutes--they were steamed then. We don't steam any more at 9." This was really frustrating because I had just come back from the eastern shore and was craving crabs again. I've been to Dinardos before and in the past the crabs have at least been warm and decent. Today they came cold and were really light on the meat even though I ordered the large. The waitress made no effort to apologize even though I specifically asked her about the coldness. I feel like she should have said something before I ordered if she KNEW that they would be cold--not just bring them out and essentially force me to pay for them. Ridiculous.
