Westbrook Lobster in Clinton Fails on Many Levels

SuzieCK | Nov 2, 201804:16 PM     2

We were craving lobster to celebrate two birthdays in early October. Looked up Westbook Lobster and decided to give it a shot. Three of us ordered the lobster pot pie which was devoid of any deep rich lobster flavor, the sauce was thin and not creamy. It was a disappointment all around and I threw my leftovers away the next day. I NEVER throw away anything with lobster in it! My sister had a real lobster which she reported was pretty tasteless. Also very disappointing. On an evening when the place had very little business, our server seemed to be having to handle all the tables herself and therefore was not around most of the time. She was apologetic but service was poor. Questions went unanswered. This is a place that should close for the season on Labor Day. Clearly the kitchen is not up to serving a decent meal - perhaps their regular chef/cook has departed, and perhaps good help is hard to find. Still, for a dinner that was supposed to be celebratory, it was very disappointing. AND NOT CHEAP!
