  • Worse service ever

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Not sure if the poor service was due to the waiter or the kitchen, but it was the worse we ever had. We waited an hour for us to get our first drink of decaf coffee. No food arrived while our waiter served others who came after us. I finally got the server and told him we had to leave in 30 minutes. We waited another 15 minutes and the main meal came. We cancelled our salads since they never came and still were not ready. The salmon dinner was good. The chicken parmesan was terrible. We were greatly disappointed since we expected this restaurant to be great based on reviews of others.

    Had the king crab legs with steak tips. Legs were great, but the steak was undercooked. Service was slow - for us. A family sat down a table away about 5-10 minutes after we arrived. They were leaving after having eaten all their food before we even received ours...

    We met friends there on a lovely evening and had an outdoor table. While there was a nice view of the lake and Weirs Beach, it also overlooked highway and parking lot -- would have been better sitting on the roof deck (closed except for weekends) or overlooking Winnesquam, but it was still nice. Our twin lobster special was delicious, along with a choice of sides (could have been a little more plentiful) and drinks were great. The dessert choices were yummy but portions were a little large so we split one (great chocolate cake). We will defiitely return for lunch or dinner.

    I had been to the restaurant last summer & was very happy with the meal, prices & entire experience. My husband & I could not wait to come back this summer & enjoy the same food. We had looked at the website on line & reviewed the menu as well as made reservations online. When we got to the restaurant the menu was much smaller & the items we were hoping for were no longer on there. I questioned the waitress as I knew I read the menu online. Her response was "Oh , that is an old menu." With everyone online nowadays I would think it would be important to have the website up to date. The food was fine, but our party was disappointed. The menu was limited as far as seafood options.

    Outside seating was nice. Waitstaff was pleasant and efficient. Food was good, but they were out of several things we wanted (it was a Sunday) and for being a lobster place we were looking for more whole/half lobster options than what they offer. I recommend, but just be aware of the caveats.

    Restaurant was very quiet for a holiday night. Very small wine list was out of our first two choices. Lobster entrees were good but had to be for the price. Seared tuna never even saw an oven flame. Rare is good but cold is not. Can't recommend.

    Waitress brought our drinks... didn't see her for 20 min after. Drinks were empty for 10 min. Finally a guy who looked like the dishwasher from the kitchen brought our food... I asked if our waitress was ok... he said, "yes." He asked if we wanted more bread... I said, "yes please." He never came back and our waitress finally showed a few minutes later... no bread though. Food was average... I would expect to pay half for what we got. They overcharged on the bill and then questioned me if I was right. I had to show her on the specials list. She fixed it. It was extremely loud... which made it hard just to converse across the table. We are in our 30's... and not deaf. That's all... wouldn't go back, ever.

    The food and service were great for it being so busy. Excellent value. We went on half off Monday. What a deal!!! The fisherman's platter is ridiculously huge. I don't think 1 person could possibly eat it. The specialty drinks were delicious. Definitely will be back in the summer to sit on the deck.

    Everything from the food to the service is top notch at this place. We had a variety of seafood and pasta dishes and they were all great. We overheard the table next to us saying the pizza was awesome. Although there is two feet of snow on the ground we will be back in the better weather to sit out on the roof deck overlooking the lake. We ended the night having a night cap in the lounge sitting on the couches watching sports on the big screen tv.

    We dined for Valentines Day - there wasn't any entree on the menu that resembled the photos on the web site; they didn't have any Pinot Grigio wine and all other whites were sweet, so I picked a merlot (which wasn't very good) and swapped with my husband who had ordered a Cabernet Sauvignon; when we ordered 2 more glass of the Cab the waitress came back with 1/2 a glass and said that's all they had left. Thankfully, we were not charged for the 1/2 glass! I would have expected a better selection AND to actually have it. We were disappointed and will probably not return.

    So close to a really good restaurant but....world renowned soup was good but not hot. Maple sugar crusted salmon was delicious but perhaps a bit too sweet. The potato and vegetable were typical. Extra points when the owner came out to speak with us tourists and check on our meals which were just fine. Service was nice. Restaurant has a decent selection of wine. Beautifully fun mural on all walls added to the nautical theme. Even on a cold rainy fall night we were at the sea. Luscious choice of desserts.

    My girlfriend and I went there on a Tuesday night so we didn't expect it to be that busy, which it wasn't. The service was great, probably because there wasn't many people there, but still it was quick service. The food was a bit too salty for my liking (I got the Baked Stuffed Shrimp) but it seemed like a nice place to go to after a long day at Weir's Beach to grab something to eat quick.

    We needed a place for 7 people to eat (two were teenagers) and Weirs Beach Lobster Pound turned out to be a good spot - something for everyone on the menu. Fish is fresh and nicely cooked - we tried the Lobster Mac and Cheese as an appetizer - shared between 7 people it was quite a size - and absolutely delicious. Dining area is pretty basic, kind of like a camp house, but still comfortable. Service was quite friendly and attentive.

    The food here was very good. The Lobster was outstanding. For a 3 pounder, I don't know seemed like clser to 4LB. to me. The claws were hugh. I brought those home for a Lobster salad. We did start with the Calamari with a ginger coating. Good, but too sweet & too oily. In the furture I'd stick with standard style. Richard then had the backed stuffed Haddock. Stuffing was excellent, but the fish a little dry, still very good,though. As for me As earlier I had the Lobster. This had a nice "ritz" cracker stuffing with lots of chopped scallops. Just the stuffing was a perfect meal un to itself. It was nearly identical to Anthony's Pier 4. The slight difference is Anthony's uses more "tomale", which I love. do get the homade fries, really great.

    The menu offers a great variety. Such that everyone in our party of 7 founds something great. The food is really good and I really enjoyed the pasta, which I think is homemade. The server was sweet but a bit forgetful as we had to ask for things multiple times. It's fairly resonably priced though the lobster was overpriced, especially considering the market price for lobster at the time we went was at an all time low. Next time we'd ask the market value first because it appears theirs are higher than usual. All and all our group would go back and I would recommend it to others.

    We were in New Hampshire for a camp visit with our kids and we went to the Lobster Pound on the camp's recommendation. My daughter and I both had the lobster roll, which was delicious, but the rest of the meal was mediocre at best. It's a neighborhood hotspot and they have a big turnover on a Saturday night so we felt rushed and a little tense eating there. Our server, although nice, was clearly trying to move us through our meal as quickly as possible which was fine because I was there with kids but otherwise would have been annoying.

    We had visited the Lobster Pound at Weirs Beach 6 years before, when it was a "lobster shack" type establishment and the prices were reasonable back then. Now they are the Lobster Pound and Italian Eatery and so much has changed. The waitress Crystal was amazing... top of her game, however the kitchen got our order wrong, food was not completely cooked and over all a very unsatisfied meal. We will not be returning.

    If you name yourself "Lobster Pound" you ought to have lobsters. When we were ready to order we were told that there was only one lobster left, a five pounder. We ordered it right away much to the dismay I am sure of all the folks who came in after us. The lobster was neither sweet nor tender. In fact it was pretty dried out. Needless to say, we won't be back.

    Food was very good, and service was also good. Our server was a very charming person however, it was obvious that there was little or no training given to this person. In a restaurant where the food is pricey more attention should be paid to the skill level of the servers. This is an all too familiar issue at many restaurants - a willing server who because of inexperience needs proper instruction and supervision. You would be well served to develop a standard for service and then TEACH it to your servers. I would still return to your restaurant the next time I'm in the area.
