I recall my review! Starboard Galley-Newburyport

Wow, did I miss the boat here.....

After a great day at Plum Island on Saturday, we headed into Newburyport and hit the Starboard Galley. I've had a couple of decent fish dinners here before, and posted as such. Saturday's experience was poor enough to prompt my recall of those reviews.

Clam chowder - over thickened.....where are the clams? No nuances, flat flavor.
Caesar salads - serviceable.
Onion soup (my daughter's choice) - wow, this was horrible! She couldn't even eat it.....
Fried haddock dinner - ok, I thought at least this would be good. Yikes, what a disaster! The fish was fresh, but was literally *wet* inside the fry coat! How could this happen? Also, very tough, overcooked tasting. Baked potato and cole slaw were the highlights of the meal. I love the horseradish they add to the slaw dressing.

Well, we won't be back.........
