Seafood Overload at Fishermen Clubhouse Restaurant

This restaurant was recommended by two of 2hung's friends to be a great place for seafood.  Fishermen Clubhouse Restaurant is located in the friendly neighborhood of Scarborough in a tiny little plaza close to Steeles and Brimley.  Don't expect to find parking at this place, but there is always street parking along the residential side streets.  We ordered one of the lobster meals for 5 which consisted of two 2.5lb lobsters done three ways as well as a bunch of other dishes.  With an extra $10, we could've traded the two regular size lobsters for two extra large size lobsters, but since the waitress didn't tell us about this, we were stuck with the 2.5 pounders, which was fine with me anyway since smaller lobsters probably taste better than the extra large ones.

First it was lobster claws and other non-tail parts cooked in Maggi sauce.
 Next was lobster tails steamed in garlic.
 Third was lobster tomalley cooked in steamed eggs (high-cholesterol alert!!).
I was not very impressed with the steamed oysters though.  The oysters were huge but mine was a little fishy...
Finally, the meal also came with a stir fried pork dish and some veggie dish.

With how crowded this restaurant was and seeing the dishes that other people were having, I had high expectations for a great seafood meal from this restaurant.  The meal was just OK to me.  It wasn't really worth the price of $40 a head.  I'd rather go somewhere else for that kind of price at a Chinese restaurant.
