We have eaten at this restaurant a number of times, but what happened on Saturday night has never occured anywhere before. On the list of specials was a "New England Seafood Dinner". It included a 1 1/4 lb. lobster, shrimp, mussels, clams, potatoes and corn on the cob. Having had the She-Crab soup before and LOVED it, I ordered it again. Much to my dismay, it tasted nothing like it did before. Then my NE Dinner came.
I ate 1/2 the lobster tail and noticed that the meat in the other half of the tail was missing, all that was there was the empty shell! I called the waitress over and told her the situation. I asked if perhaps the other half of the tail was still in the pot.
She said no it wasn't, the reason for the missing piece was that they had 1 1/2 lb lobsters and so they removed the piece of lobster meat to bring it down to 1 1/4 lb. Needless to say, the seafood was delicious, but I came away with a bad taste in my mouth!
