Amber DionSorry but Ray's fried lobster tail on a stick and dipped in butter will always be #1 for me. It's a seafood festival, not corn!

Jillian Haggar PrendergastDid anyone have the lobster ravioli's from Tuscan Kitchen? They were delicious. They advertised 3 ravioli's for $5. I was charged $10. I didn't realize till I went back to my family and my father in law pointed it out in the book they were giving out
