Tackle Box - Georgetown

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!"

"I" said: "Tackle Box was delish as always. I love the mac and cheese!"

  1. The pics look so good! I want to go back! I may even try something asides from scallops next time.

  2. glad to hear the food was good! I went there a while ago when they first opened and it was horrendously overpriced! The plates make it look nicer inside!
