Red Lobster Complaint - Bad Food Good Service
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- I had just ordered a carry out order for the Admirals Feast, and at $17.00 I was expecting a decent meal and got a good amount of food, the meal itself was clam strips, scallops, butterflied shrimp, and a fish fillet, all of which was fried. This came with a side and salad which I chose a baked potato and caesar salad. The salad to start with looked decent however I didn't receive any dressing for this so was really unable to eat it. I ate it later with different dressing and really wasn't bad the lettuce was rather fresh and tasted ok, however without the dressing really could have been anything and would have tasted the same. My baked potato was horrible. It was so over-seasoned I really couldn't even eat it I had to try and wipe it off and do anything to get rid of the massive amount of salt on it. The meal itself unfortunately was about the worst part. The scallops were about the only good part. The clam strips I ate about two of because they were just bad. There was really no clam in them it was almost all breading and the clam that there was was over cooked so badly that they couldn't even be bitten through. The shrimp were about the same they were just really tough and lacked almost any flavor all of the seafood needed so much sauce to taste good at all. The fish fillet was actually pretty good, kind of soggy by the time I got to eat it but the fish itself was cooked better, flaked apart and one of the good parts of my meal. Overall though all the seafood really lacked any flavor or taste and was not cooked well. The only part of the meal I ate that I actually ate all of were the biscuits which are pretty good, but everything else was really just not good at all. It has been a while since I have eaten at Red Lobster and each time just seems to be going down hill. I will not eat here again as I work in a fish restaurant that is comparably priced, I would be embarrasssed to serve anything like this to our customers. Again, this food was just bad, overcooked and over seasoned yet still lacked any real flavor. The woman that was the hostess was really nice and friendly so I didn't want to say anything to her knowing that she had nothing to do with the food, but it was just not good. What happened Red Lobster?!?!
