Advertising pays off! Because of the ad in this morning's newspaper, I changed my mind about eating at Red Lobster to City Fish. Not a great move.
Even though there is a November special of 'buy a dinner and get the second one for half price,' It wasn't such a special dinner. The 7 shrimp in the 6 Shrimp Cocktail [$5.99] were good size and fresh, the cocktail sauce was watery and real spicy [horseradish]. The Clam Chowder [substituted for fries] was excellent with large pieces of clam in a rich broth. The Lobster Roll [the reason I went there ($14.99)] was a big disappointment. The lobster consisted of shreds of lobster, no pieces at all. It was like they used the same preparation for both the hot and cold lobster salad roll.
We ate in the new dining room. You still order at the take-out counter and carry your order into the dining room. It's kind of a lame attempt to be a restaurant. I guess you can buy there also.
Next time I will get the scallop dinner [$10.99] as it looked terrific at an adjacent table while the whole belly clams [$12.99] looked good also.
