Disappointing dinner

.

It was a bright and sunny evening at Casa River and after a full day of yard work we decided to drive along the coast of Harpswell and have dinner on the water.

The closer we got, the thicker the fog. This restaurant is crazy crowded when the summer tourists descend so we’d hoped to beat the swarm and grab an outdoor table to enjoy the view.

But the view was pea soup fog so we hit the bar instead. A few blueberry lemonades later..

We ate a very disappointing meal. My $30 fried scallops were tasty but not plentiful and though I ordered a baked potato I received french fries because they had run out. And if that’s not bad enough, it was served in a paper lined wire basket more reminiscent of a lobster shack than fine dining. The husband’s scallop and lobster pasta had 3 scallops and 3 minuscule pieces of lobster for $40. While we never mind paying good money for a good meal, this longtime favorite place might be in danger of being dropped from our list.

    1. It’s so hard to find a place that has the good location as well as good food. Tourists don’t care what they’re eating or paying as long as it’s on the water…. I need both.

  1. Pasta is cheaper than scallops and lobster, and his bowl seems to reflect a serious kitchen cost cutting measure. I have learned to actually ASK how many scallops I can expect….how many shrimp I can expect….and French fries instead of a baked potato?? Yeah. Deal breaker for me.
