But not everybody loves the restaurant and its services, one of the customer reviews was about how uncomfortable, disappointing, and expensive their whole experience was. They wrote that the chairs were un-comfy, and the food quality was below average.

Not only this, but they also wrote about particular dishes like how their corn chowder was tasteless and small sized, how the lobster burger had a very small lobster in it, with dry, witty, and stale meat patty, lettuce, and tomatoes. Simply state, they were not happy campers.
