Worst lobster roll on nantucket The Ropewalk

Nantucket is a wonderful and special place to visit. Most of the restaurants serve extraordinary food that is quite memorable. I chose for a quick lunch to eat at a place on the water in downtown Nantucket called the Ropewalk. Do not eat here even though the views are fantastic. I ordered a 22.00 lobster roll that was so inedible that I had to send it back. I know you must be thinking how can a lobster roll be inedible, it was. I took one bite and ten pounds of water came shooting out of a mushy claw. It tasted like it was canned watery frozen lobster. I decided to just replace it with a house salad because I was nervous to order anything else because my clam chowder was just ok. The salad came and it was so tiny. It was the size of a salad you would get if you were at someones wedding. The plate was about 3 inches and the ingredients were nothiing special. It was 9.50. I had chowder and a salad my dining companion had fish and chips with two beers and the bill was 100.00. I realize that nantucket is expensive but 100.00 for soup and a tiny salad is crazy. Everyone around us sent their food back too. Not good, stay away.
