Worst Fish Ever

First the Good: Server was amazing. She was very kind and kept are drinks filled and got are food out to us very quickly.

The Bad: I ordered the Mahi special, which was supposed to be a Mahi filet encrusted with Macadamia nuts and covered with a Pineapple salsa, with a baked potato and a house salad. What I got was bitter lettuce with over powering croutons to start with. Then I got some kind of fished that was baked to death with no flavor with a few chunks of pineapple and sauce from a can of pineapple. The fish tasted like a baked egg, I guess from the coating that held the random nuts to the fish. Worst tasting thing ever.

The Ugly: So I asked the server for the wasabi sauce that came with a different fish on the menu to try and get something out of the food and I got soy sauce with a clump of powdered wasabi in it. So I gave up and was waiting for the server to pay the bill and a different server snatched the check so i had to chase her down and tell her I thought the fish was terrible and she said she would send the manager over. So I sat down and after about 15 minutes our server came back and said the manager took 10% off for the meal. At this point I was so pissed I just paid and walked out, the manager never talked to me and to be this rude about a bad meal was just insulting.

I will never eat here again and I recommend you find someplace else to eat in town.

Wrong address

The address to Groupers is 400 S. Water St.

The address that is listed will take you to Thumpers Downtown Bar and Grille instead, someone might want to change that.

Good food though!!

I lived in Boston for 16 years and all seafood restaurants are now judged by my experiences with the very best New England has to offer. I can tell that someone in the kitchen at Groupers loves to cook! The calamari appetizer was top…
