Downhill Alert--Clem and Ursie's P-town

We went to dinner tonight at Clem and Ursie's. It used to be one of my favorite places, but after this trip and my last one before this, I'm NEVER going back. The place has become ridiculous. I had grilled swordfish, which was fine, but nothing special, for $18. My SO had a lobster roll, which had way to much mayo, but was otherwise good, at $15. But the prices have gotten quite high, and place is very hectic, noisy, and dirty, with flies everywhere and a generally not-very-clean feel to the place. My sense is, it's gotten too big for its briches.

As a comparison, on Sun. night we went to the Friendly Fisherman, which was great, as usual, excellent lobster roll ($15.50), giant clam plate (too much for one person for $16), and the best fried fish on the Cape (IMHO). It's too bad the fries aren't better there, but it's really a hidden gem.
