The only thing preventing me from selecting "Terrible" in this review is the atmosphere / sunset. The Sea Shell has been a favorite summer time dining location of ours for years. It is hands down the best place to watch the sun set on the east shore of Oneida lake. Historically the food has matched the atmosphere, unfortunately something has changed this year and it is NOT for the better.
Earlier this summer we were looking forward to kicking off the summer with a great dinner and sunset at the Sea Shell. We enjoyed a great sunset but had a terrible dinner, but thought... OK it was bad but anyone can have a bad day. Last night we gave them another go... it was equally as bad as before. From dried out over cooked pork chops (which historically had been amazing) to fish that was equally as bad, the meal was a total miss.
It is truly unfortunate that one of our favorite summertime dinning spots is experiencing such a downturn in quality. Sorry but even an amazing sunset won't be able to get us back anytime soon.
