I was bummed when the Boston Cooker closed their location in Oldsmar, but today we decided to drive up to their remaining location in Spring Hill.  Unfortunately, the experience wasn’t worth the drive.  The restaurant in Spring Hill looks identical to the interior of Daddy’s Grill.  The best part of the meal was the rolls fresh from the oven.  We started off with some lobster bisque and Loren got a salad.

The bisque was really thick and in need of salt.  There weren’t any actual pieces of lobster in there either.  Loren got the seafood platter.

It had shrimp, scallops, fish, and oysters in it.  He said it was ok with the fish being the best thing on the plate.  The only reason I wanted to go here was for the whole belly clams.

What a total disappointment.  I had to send the first plate back because the clams were watery and mushy.  It was terrible.  By the time, the new batch came out, Loren was just about finished with his meal.  The second batch wasn’t as watery, but they weren’t great either.  Nothing like I remembered having them before.  We won’t be heading back up there again.  Total bill with a drink was $37.
