Chapter House in Howell

Living in the area the past 20 years I was wondering why I do not go to the Chapter House in Howell NJ. I know now. We went with a party of 3. My wife ordered a salad and my mother in law and I ordered the Fried shrimp. To be honest if she would have been the only one to order the shrimp, I would have thought nothing of it, but the fact is I was greatly disappointed. Now I have eaten at least 1,000 Fried shrimp in my lifetime and the chef comes out and tells me there was nothing wrong with it. Every shrimp I had, I could just take the breading off and I'm left with a hard shrimp. Now I know thats not normal but the fact that they told me thats the way they cook them just annoyed me. I did not make a fuss. I just sent it back once, only to have it cooked the same way again. They offered dessert on the house but we we were disappointed and just left

    By 'Hard', do you mean overcooked?

      I don't think so t for it to happen twice..Why would the breading just peel off. Is it possible the shrimp were frozen and not fresh?.
