First of all, I have to say that they make really good biscuits, however, I don't go to seafood restaurants for fresh baked biscuits. I go to seafood restaurants for fresh seafood offerings.
After a long discussion with the waitress, I came to realize that the only fresh seafood offering that Red Lobster had was the market priced Maine lobster.
Fresh oysters? No!
Fresh cod? No!
Fresh prawns or shrimp? No!
Fresh halibut or salmon? No!
Freshly frozen seafood? Yes! Lots of it!
Well okay, I thought, I've had pretty good frozen fish at home. So, I ordered some baked salmon.
It was very much overcooked. I should have guessed that it might be like chewing on vulcanized rubber when it came to the table nearly ten minutes after everyone else in my dinner party was served.
I sent it back and they offered to try again. I declined, because everyone in the dinner party would have finished by the time I was served. So, I just ordered an Hors-de-oeuvres of prawns - something quick.
The last time that I went to a Red Lobster previous to this occasion, was about 15 years ago. I remember getting fresh fish? Or, was I wrong?
To wrap this up, I am not sure if the service was slow, or if it was just extremely disorganized?
All in all, Red Lobster appears and tastes like it is in decline, and I wouldn't recommend it without hearing of an extensive make-over.
