Fulton's on the River - High Quality Delicacies

Twin Wild Cold Water Lobster Tails
Don't let the word "cold" steer you away from this voluptuousness especially when there are two seven ounces wild cold water lobster tails, boiled with melted butter and served with grilled lemon.  If you're a fan of sweeter and more tender seafood, cold water lobster is the way to go.  Already succulent with a luxurious texture, Fulton's escalates the natural flavor simply by broiling it with melted butter.  These lobster tails are so luscious; the melted butter on the side is not necessary.
Firecracker Glazed Shrimp
The Firecracker Glazed Shrimp definitely brings excitement to your taste buds and more.  The crispy fried jumbo shrimps are gently blanketed with a tempura-like batter and smothered in a spicy yet sweet sauce.  Each bite stimulates a blissful moment and reminds you that this is what seafood done right should taste like.  This appetizer calls for jumbo shrimp, maybe in Fulton's mind for sharing, but I say it's because they know you can't get enough.  I don't recommend sharing because everyone would want their own.
Fresh Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes
Fulton's Fresh Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes are served with their house made tartar sauce and coleslaw.  No imitations or non-sense fillers here, just nice white tender succulent crabmeat.  The only complaint is that the slaw is a bit too tangy and acidic; I left it alone, leaving the meal missing a complementing flavor component.  But the crab cakes are still absolutely delicious; I would order it again.
Seared Seasonal Scallops
Surf and turf doesn't always have to be lobster and steak.  Fulton's seafood and meat combo involves perfectly seared scallops and tender pork belly.  The brilliant idea of having pork belly served with seared scallops takes the dish to an extreme level of satisfaction.  The delicate pair was cooked flawlessly with a melt in your mouth texture.  So satisfying, you'd want to stay faithful to this dish.
