The pros: Stew Leonard's Seafood Pot Pie has a super flaky pie crust, delicious and rich filling that doesn't skimp on the seafood.
The cons: No nutritional values (I probably don't want to really know. Anything that tastes this good, I'm strangely ok with not looking how not good it might be for me) or how to prepare/reheat. I really wanted to make sure I didn't microwave this, nor did I want to burn this. I had it in the oven for 20 minutes and still hit cold middle. Cold delicious middle.
The verdict: For $7.99 per pound, I don't know why anyone would even attempt to make this from scratch. It's tasty, and the filling is firm. One slice, ok about a quarter of this is a meal all on its own. They didn't skimp on the seafood either. It wasn't like eating a potato pie. There was potato, veggies and lots of seafood. All of which was tasty on its own. The pie crust is delicate, light and flaky. The only thing I can complain about was the fact that the directions for enjoying this were missing. I know pie crust has a tendency of burning so I was worried about putting it back in the oven, at what temperature, and for how long. I tried 300F for 20 minutes and it could have been in there for longer. If you like seafood, this was delicious and worth a try. This almost two pound pie was good for about 3 very generous servings.

Would I buy this again? Yes, yes, and yes. This is the perfect one dish meal. Especially delicious in cool weather as it's warm, filling, and hearty. They sell other varieties of pies besides seafood. I'll try them at a later point and report back.
