For our second "A" restaurant, we stopped into Amory's Seafood Restaurant. I love seafood but I am always disappointed by the chain seafood restaurant by the mall. We went to the Chesapeake Square location after reading about this local gem. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent!
I ordered the fried bit of everything platter (that is not what it is actually called sadly.) The tilapia was okay. The crab cake was very good. But the shrimp and scallops were amazing. The shrimp had a very mild taste. Scallops are often rubbery or slimy but these were done exactly right. The sides were also delicious. For the finish I had a tiny red velvet cupcake which was the perfect size.
I had no problem with the atmosphere but if you are coming here looking for white cloth table clothes and romantic candle light you will be disappointed. If you are looking for great food and good service in a no-frills atmosphere, this is your place.
Overall we give Amory's 4.5 out of 5 stars.
