Red Lobster Complaint - OMG, you call that lobster?
ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS -- The Lobsterfest commercials were so enticing that we braved the zero atmosphere and screaming kids to catch it before it ended. OMG. The shrimp were scraggly sorry looking things. And the lobster ... you call that lobster? It was so salty and smokey it tasted like a cheap wiener that'd been left too long on the grill. Tried dipping it butter to mask the taste, but the butter was salty and not clarified, and only made things worse. For what we paid, we could have gone up the street for some REAL seafood. Now I'm forced to track down someplace soon that serves the sweet, succulent lobster I was anticipating--or be put off the stuff forever. Oh, and the waitress started off by announcing what excellent care she'd be taking of us, then failed to bring the chowder I'd ordered. The salad was swimming in dressing--ack. And the manager, sensing something was amiss with us, came over and interrupted our conversation, not to offer to address the immediate problems, but to tell us to take their online survey. Never again.
