Lobster House - Freehold?
We were stocking up for the hurricane when we passed this place today...we noticed the sign. It's where Iron Skillet used to be and before that that short lived "other place" in Raintree by Top Tomato. I have not seen any advertising for them and like I said I did not even know they were there even though I shop quite often in the area. It doesn't look too promsing.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqCnOi...
Where do I begin, Ok, we placed our order and got our drinks. When food started coming out it came out in waves. SOme people were eating whiles others were still waiting. Some food was even forgotten. When we asked where it was the waitperson asked if we ordered it.. Umm, we did or we would not be inquiring about it.
With a table of 9, more then half of us had greasy food. Some was over done. Shrimp cocktail.. someone got an order of 4 shrimp and it was brought out on a huge dish and the shrimp were small. Someone got a sandwich and it did not taste all that great. Also it should have been made with garlic bread and it was not.
Fries were good however.
Would I go back, no, not at all.
My wife and I went there and found the food pleasant and the place noisy. We had clams casino as an appetizer and they were very tasty and decent sized. She ordered swordfish and was quite pleased. Not oily at all. I had been there before and at that time ordered the lobster which I frankly found lacking in taste and texture. The lobsters are fresh, but mine was overcooked. (FYI, the lobster special mentioned in the post below is a lunch special.) On this trip I ordered their special: shrimp, mussels and clams in a mild garlicky sauce. Very, very good and quite filling. The shrimp was fresh and, the clams were tender. I recommend this dish. All dinners come with a plate of pasta. The chef likes his spaghetti sauce spicy hot, too hot for my taste so I ordered with olive oil and garlic, which was flavorful but not overpowering. Still and all, a large step up from the Iron Skillet.
