Not sure why your bowl of chowder was lacking seafood. Here is a comment from one of our recent guests "We both had the seafood chowder which was full of chunks of lobster, scallops, and fish, plus potatoes, onions and carrots in a yummy broth".

We are sorry that you felt rushed. We try to read our guests and pace the meal accordingly, it really depends on what they order. Obviously our staff misread your intentions and we apologize or that. I do appreciate your comment about the Tika Misala...More
