Pleasant Surprise - good lobster bisque
We were wandering around town and realized we were HUNGRY - just as we were passing this little restaurant. It was early and no-one was eating yet, but the waitress was very accommodating. We didn't want a big meal, and decided to try their lobster bisque and stuffies (Stuffed quohogs - large stuffed clams).
This is NOT a gourmet restaurant - but the bisque was thick and creamy with a nice sherry flavor, and lots of little bits of lobster (not chunks- do not expect that!). It did not have that bad flavor of too much raw flour that some bisques can. It was much better than the bisque at Eveylyns in Tiverton.
The stuffies were different- but very good, with large FRESH chunks of clams - not chewy. They finished them/heated them face down on the grill. Served with a slice of lemon- very tasty.
The prices were incredibly reasonable. A cup of chowder is $3.00 - and a cup of bisque was only 50cents more at $3.50. A full bowl of bisque was $4.50.
Two stuffies, a cup of bisque, and a bowl of bisque cambe to a grand total of $13.50 with tax. We were satisfied and certainly did not need anything else to eat.
The portions of the meals we saw coming out of the kitchen were HUGE, including the fried clams dinner. While we didn't try them, the meals looked very good.
If we are in town, and hungry, we would definitely stop by here again to eat.
Don't expect anything fancy - this is a diner and seems like a place the locals like to eat.
