The Oar House - Rockwall, Texas
Now my friends, who live in the area, assured me that they have visited their many times before and insisted that the food is incredible. That was then, this is now.
Why did they feel obligated to stuff us in a booth, in the corner, so cramped that my legs fell asleep? And in a mostly empty restaurant to boot? No clue here. But the menu looked great, and I decided to keep the evening civil. Let's review, shall we? Drumroll please ....
Inasalata Gorgonzola - Mixed Greens (or rather Iceberg lettuce), toasted walnuts (or rather candied pecans), crispy pancetta (or rather bacon bits) and gorgonzola dressing (but without the gorgonzola).
Rambo ai Granchio - Pan seared halibut (so overcooked that it had to be cut with a knife and was it even halibut? It could have easily been tilapia ... or sole ... of a shoe.) with crab meat (?) and asparagus in a lime cream sauce (though if there was lime it was the unflavored kind).
Dessert? Sure, you can't mess up dessert, can you? Mmmmmm, nothing better than frozen tirimisu straight from the walk-in, eh?
I rather wish that they served the fried critter platter that I imagined, probably would have been much better.
