On our way home from Key West we had hoped to stop for one last seafood meal and boy were we disappointed. Keep in mind I am from Hawaii, and I have experienced excellent fresh seafood and I am more than happy to pay a premium for great quality, but...when I asked our waitress if I could have my Ahi Tuna appetizer cooked to order she said she would have to charge me for the entree rather than the appetizer and began a lecture about how it is prepared as if I had never ordered Ahi in my life, when on the contrary I've ordered it around the world and never heard such a ridiculously pompous explanation in all my years!!! This nonsense continued with each item I inquired about. Ultimately I decided that I would order soup and avoid the frustration and even that was a disappointment, two varieties of vegetables (zucchini and carrots) in a Tabasco broth does not a minestrone soup make. The entree my husband ordered, Shrimp Scampi was worse, and the entree my daughter ordered worse still. The shrimp was over cooked, the rice was some variety of Uncle Ben's Instant rice and the scallops were drowned in a bland, thick cream sauce.
