I'm ready to go back today, Mrs. Nucky is thinking its a go but not until later around 7 PM probably.

2 1/2 lb Lobster for around $35. Sounds good to me. I'm salivating. I love Lobster, It is Maine Lobster.
Thanks, i do wonder why the couple thinks someone should throw extra attention to them, unless they are well known buy name and face for their expertise in food industry.
2.5 lobster would feed us and then some. We will wait for a month or so, never fare to judge a restaurant until the initial dry run is over.

Some of us are satisfied with decent food quality as my own palate is not very sensitive. If the food is not moving, it's good enough for me.

Hoping the Bluefin becomes a destination restaurant. I will go there when the initial furor dies down.
You never fail Joe .......... you are the epitome of commonsense and once again a good post.

2 1/2 lb cold water lobster for $35 is a bargain! especially when you compare the twin tails for $24.99 on Monday's in the country clubs. Each tail is only 4 oz.

All of your meals arrived in a decent time, and ALL were great. I had the lump crabmeat, my wife the trout, I forget what the other couple had, but they were also impressed. We will definitely be going back.
All sounds great and we will be trying it soon ! The only problem I see is that a bartender there would even try to pass off an incorrectly made drink to a customer when they don't even have the correct ingredients on hand. They had to know they were making it wrong.

It is not on the menu Mrs. Fw. You have to ask for it. We went back tonight and I had the Scallops, mashed potatoes, and Brussel Sprouts. I can't believe how good it was, Mrs. Nucky had the Lobster, she wants to go back for breakfast, just kidding. It was great but crowded, we waited 20 minutes. Worth the wait and I never wait, ever.
