Fox Lobster House: "$23 Clam Strips Dinner" York Beach Restaurant Tip by Mrleee1

York Beach Restaurants: 10 reviews and 16 photos

I am a seasonal camper at Eatons in York and I dine at many restaurant s in the area from May to October. I decided to try Fox's with my wife and a guest on Sat Oct 1st 2011. I ordered the $23 fried clam diiner and got three whole belly clams on top of a pile of clam strips. I asked to see the Mgr or Owner and was told she was not available but could talk to her after I paid the bill. Paid the bill and again asked to talk to the Mgr or Owner. Owner "Phylis" came out and I explained the clam strip vs whole belly issue: her verbation quote " Fox uses clams from Canada which do not have large bellies because they explode in the deep fryer".

I told Phylis that this was the most lame answer I have ever heard to justify ripping off a diner...she rushed at me with her finger 10" from my face and told me that I was "just trying to get $23 taken off the bill". My wife and I left. But it was an UGLY scene!
