    That's what they all serve. No one is back in the kitchen breading shrimp. (I'm not being a smart a$$).

    It's not like they're a Red Lobster - they're a seafood restauant on the water. He thinks their seafood should be fresh made and not pre-packaged, so that wasn't acceptable for him

    I dont expect some things to be fresh at a local place. Shrimp and tilapia on that list. Rockfish, oysters, yep.

    I don't eat a lot of fish or shrimp, but when I do get those I only order fresh made seafood, not pre-made (processed) and frozen. The point is - he felt that, along with all the other things which were listed in other posts, were reasons to stop giving them our business. They've gone way downhill from what they used to be.

    We just ask ahead of time, now.

    LOL Most people do think that but I've worked in 3 local places and it's frozen shrimp (unless it's streamed). Some think the crabs are picked in the back room for crab cakes too.

    I've never had streamed shrimp. Is there an app or something I need on my phone to get that?

    Even Jerry's doesn't use Maryland crabs for his crabcakes, from what I've read about his restaurant. However, I believe they're fresh made and not frozen pre-made/processed.

    When I eat out, I don't want something I can make at home. I wouldn't want to pay for frozen and pre-made breaded shrimp. I've developed a slight reaction to shrimp in the past few years, (puffy eyes) and I've been leery to eat them. So, when I do I definitely want fresh and not frozen. Same with fish when I have a taste for fried fish and chips. I ask about it being fresh.
