Shaws Crab House

I recently attended a large party business dinner at Shaws Crab House. I have to say that the service was among the worst I've ever experienced in my life. The dinner took 3 and 1/2 hours, and the most incredible thing was that at 10:40, AFTER waiting close to 2 hours for our entree's, the waiter came up and explained that they had "run out of lobsters." Of course had they served us in even remotely timely fashion, they might've had a few left to serve us in the first place but a seafood place running out of lobsters? This long painflully slow dinner was a fiasco from a restaurant perspective. The food was mediocre, and what came out of the kitchen, at the slower than snail's pace was hit or miss, and some of it was shamefully served at a lukewarm temperature. I wouldn't go back there even for free.
