If you are looking for above average theme park seafood with above average pricing, look no further than Lombard’s Seafood Grille located in Universal Studios. Growing up in Newport Rhode Island, I grew up around seafood so I can be a bit critical when it comes to a seafood restaurant.
Let’s start off with the atmosphere. Did you know there’s a story behind Lombard’s? A scientist lived on the top floor with his wife and during the great earthquake he escaped with his family in a submarine in the basement. The inside of the restaurant looks inspired by The Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The story was a best recant from two of the servers working that day. How it became a restaurant is still a mystery.
I had the Lobster Roll and was also able to try the Fish and Fries. The Lobster Roll, although much bigger and fuller than a lobster roll you can get in the Magic Kingdom theme park, lacked in flavor. The kettle chips served alongside weren’t bad. The fish was much better, a very light flavorful batter around the fish itself. Still, we enjoy the fish from the Wizarding World much more. Next time here, I plan on trying the crab cake sandwich.
