About 2 weeks ago when I and B were visiting, we met up with S at Tackle Box in Georgetown for lunch. We all hadn't been there in a while, plus I wanted to use my $30 for $15 gift certificate from LivingSocial. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were using real plates now, and the fried food seemed to be better than in past visits early on when they first opened.
S: Fried Scallops, Broccoli, Clam Chowder.
I: Fried Scallops, Mac n Cheese, Cole Slaw.
B: Lobster Roll, Fries, Clam Chowder.
Me: Lobster Roll, Fries.
This was my first time trying the Lobster Roll here, and it was v. delicious! Pretty much all meat in the toasted, buttered split bun = lots of lobstery goodness. Not too heavy on the mayo which I liked. I had expected some sort of crunch factor (like chopped celery) for some contrast, but it wasn't that big of an issue. The fries were crispy, sufficiently potato-y, and capped off a rather indulgent lunch, haha. It was a great lunch for a sunny fall day in Georgetown!
S said: "I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at Tackle Box! It had been a year since I'd eaten there, and I must say that I loved being back. The fried scallops were delicious and my sides of broccoli was just right. Overall, three stars!"
