Overpriced, Mediocre Food

I heard about this restaurant a few years ago and passed it the other day. Decided to try it. First bad sign was when I entered, I noticed it was a buffet. Very rare for a buffet style restaurant to serve proper food.

Service - When I entered, there was no hostess. After 10 minutes, I walked in and asked if I could sit anywhere. The woman replied, we have a hostess. I stated I had been there 10 minutes and there was not a hostess up front (the hostess was in the back of the restaurant having and extended conversation with some customer friends. I seated myself and waited another 5 minutes for a waitress.

Food - I ordered the Mixed Grill, $18.99 for myself and my guest. It came with a Rib Eye steak, shrimp, and scallops. I ordered the steak Medium, it arrived well done. Plate was not a mixed grill at all. The steak was broiled and the scallops and shrimp were in some tomato sauce (from the can) with sliced onions and peppers served over rice - like a fish stew. The scallops were mushy - not a good texture. The shrimp were good size but lacked taste. The entire meal lacked any flavor. There were no spices at all used during the cooking - of if there was, I could not taste any hint of spices. Nothing was fresh. The steak was a lower quality steak like the ones that come frozen in a box. The seafood was definately frozen at one time. Neither one of us finished our meal and we both had sour stomachs after consuming. We skipped desert and probably did the right thing.

Summary - For the price, I expected choice steak and fresh seafood. The food was more in line with what you would find at a roadside diner or cafe. For $10, this would have been an okay meal. For $20, it was a disaster. It is obvious there is no Chef in the kitchen - only hired cooks. The kitchen is the heart of the restaurant. I would say this restaurant is in need of a pacemaker.

Lillian's Seafood Restaurant is tucked into a suburban neighborhood in Chesapeake. My husband I shared the seafood combo platter--an amazing array of fried seafood with delicious crab-cakes and hushpuppies. This platter was so huge that we needed two large carry-out boxes for our left-overs. We were amazed that the staff allowed our four-year old daughter to eat off of the...
