Went to Jim's Dock for lunch on a perfect day. What a beautiful location! But the food? The worst fried clams I have ever tasted. Over fried with no discernible bellies (consequence of over frying?) and most of the clams were actually stuck together in a big glop. No tarter sauce, just a little tin of mayo for dipping. The lobster rolls were equally bad. No tail meat at all. Lots of that secondary claw meat (you know, not the fat claw, but the shiny rubbery part of the smaller pincer) It might have even come out of a can. The calamari was a failed attempt at Rhode Island style with all rings (no tentacles), again over fried with some non-marinated sliced peppers just thrown in. A haddock sandwich was pretty good.
All in all, a miserable dining experience in a wonderful setting.
Any similar experiences? Recs for next time?
