Red Lobster Complaint - Changing food selections to gain more money
TOPEKA, KANSAS -- My wife and family have always loved going to Red Lobster, but we found another love we have been eating at, but thought we would go back to our old favorite one night. I had always got the dockside shrimp and chicken plate, which at last price was $11.99. Well not going there for a while I just assumed I would order what I loved from there. Well, no more dockside shrimp and chicken. You have to now make your own selections. If I got the chicken breasts, and shrimp scampi, and the fries, I would have paid 18.99 just for my meal alone. Prices will always go up year to year, but that is just ridiculous. For the whole family we could get out for $33.00. That is both of our meals plus a kid's chicken strip meal.
Now for what we had to build piece by piece to match what we always got before, we are now paying $48.00 before the tip. I wish they would have not changed the way they did their food selections. It makes it hard to take a family out to dinner every week with a surprise like that. Their service is great and food is superb, but it is a shock when they seem to find a way to really stick it to you, even though they may not intenionally do that.
Guess Texas Roadhouse looks much more appetizing after that. Pay the same, but atleast we walk out with a day of leftovers.
