Worst Seafood experience EVER!!!!!!!!!!! – Seafood is my favorite food group, well it should be a food group. So I thought wow, new seafood resturant in Hilliard. How great, since i live so close to Hilliard. Got to the resturant around 6:30pm on a Friday evening. The place was hopping. Was seated quickly. I was splurging this particular night so i ordered the most expensive steam pot on the menu. Was supossed to have crab legs, shrimp, scallops, and vegetables in a beer sauce. (This is a good part so don't skip) I asked the waitress if the steam pot was steamed in the beer or was it boiled in the beer, she said boiled in the beer. I then told her that if its bioled in beer and sitting in beer when it comes out of the pot, then its a boil not a steam. She argued with me for a while and assured me that it was a steam and not a boil. I then asked her if they could just steam it in old bay and she had no clue what old bay was. Well after a very long wait the food arrived. Wouldn't youknow it right there in a bowl sitting in a brown liquid of beer was 3 yes 3 crab legs 4 shrimp and sevral red skin potatoes. They should of called it a potatoe boil with a taste of seafood. I cracked open a crab leg and NASTY it was dried out, like someone tried to dehydrate it. WTF, I couldn't even eat it. The other two were cold and soaked. Just plain nasty. The shrimp were over cooked and rubbery. I ate a potatoe and with salt it was ok. I paid the bill without complaint because I didn't want to look like a rude customer, and left. I won't be back.
