The Lazy Frog, Morris, CT, disappointing

DW wanted to try this place, so last week, on April 10, 2012, as we were on our way home from Torrington we thought we'd give it a shot. As soon as I walked in the door and saw that they had an oyster po' boy on the menu my mind was made up (fried oysters are my favorite thing to eat when I'm out). The wife ordered a catfish blt. The sandwiches, were each served on a long hoagie or sub roll and each came served with (possibly housemade) potato chips. Well I opened up my one half roll and found two, count'em, 2, oysters carefully spaced out atop the slaw and hot sauce. The second half had three. Now on this trip I had figured we'd stop at Crabby Al's where an oyster roll overflowing with lightly breaded oysters and accompanied by good fries and slaw would have run between 9 and 10 bucks. But here at the Lazy Frog's, those 5 little shellfish in a biiig roll fetched $11.99. DW's comments about her lunch were: "Well, that was filling".

Judging by that experience, I feel that the food does not live up to the exotic descriptions on the menu -- or the prices. I decided not to take a copy of the menu as we left.

    I've seen its' progress as I drive up that way every other weekend. It is a brand new building, lots of money went into it. The parking lot is always full when i drive by on Sundays. I don't get the name and the hours are odd closing at 7 pm. Doesn't look appealing to me, corny.
