Red Lobster Complaint - First Time Ever Disappointed

Review by bevjack on 2009-01-13
DAYTON, OHIO -- We went to the Red Lobster in Dayton, Ohio on Miller Lane at 1:30 PM. We were seated and waited at least 10 minutes had ask for Bread, Napkins, Tables around us were not cleaned off. When the manager ask us how was everything I told her that I was very disappointed and that had never been unhappy there and told her I was not coming back she offered me some dessert I said no Thanks.

I explained to her that the flounder was paper thin I received 4 fried shrimp I counted them. The scampi was small and not good, I got the $9.50 platter the baked potato was small and shriveled up. I paid for my friend it was my birthday.

She ordered crab cakes,(2) $8.99 a baked potato $2.25 a salad 2.25 her dinner was $14.00 I was very upset at the food and the pricing and the service we received.

Shucks, Ken! Guess it was corrected before the rest of us were able to see that new word. Just what kind of friend has the b'day person pay for your dinner? Guess I must be the last of the big time spenders. I usually pay for the person who is celebrating a b'day.

In the 'day' when good seafood joints were hard to find in all but the largest cities, Red Lobster was a good second choice. Over the years, RL has become an overpriced Long John Silvers and the seafood equivalent of the faux Italian 'cuisine' served at Olive Garden. Great post!

yeah, Red Lobster is just like fast food these days. I would expect from them bad food but not bad service and cleanliness

It sounds as if you've been there many times before and this was the first time you were disappointed. Why is the price an issue on this complaint, if you've been there before, you should have been aware of the price before you got there.

Debtor..I love how people have 'never had a problem before' and the first time they do they are never going back lol! And no matter what went wrong, it all comes down to the PRICE.
