In my group, the veto comes from the person who says Red Lobster food is too salty.

I veto Red Lobster because I do like sea food.

Dude, their cheesy biscuits are amazing.
 
2012-10-02 07:09:53 PM
Maybe they should add roast bef to their menu to go along with the loobster.
 
2012-10-02 07:12:09 PM
Wait... Red Lobster had seafood?

/when did this happen?
 
2012-10-02 07:13:41 PM
Great, so now you can drag your friend who is, say, incredibly allergic to shellfish, and doesn't particularly like much fish either, to a restaurant that reeks of old fish. I'm sure your friend will appreciate it. I bet he'll like it as much as when he's dragged to sushi where if he's lucky he can get a bowl of rice with some dry chicken "teriyaki" and then when the bill comes for $500 of sushi all his friends say "let's just split it!"

Say what you will about Red Lobster. They're by no means great cuisine (the same company owns Olive Garden), but they do something few chain restaurants do, which is taking into consideration their customers allergies.

Both my son and I are allergic to shellfish. If you inform them of your allergies they will offer you an allergen menu that shows you what possible allergens each menu item contains.

I thought they'd just bring you a Benadryl with your order

I veto Red Lobster because I can only eat so much butter-like grease food substance.

hell yeah. If people want to eat bugs from the ocean they should do it in private where others don't have to see or smell it.

How can someone NOT like seafood. That's like saying you don't like cheese. Even the lactose intolerant love cheese.

That wouldn't work for me since I'm allergic to Benadryl.

This is the allergen menu (PDF) that they give you upon request.

I have a couple of friends with weird allergies or food intolerances.

One loves to fish, but can't touch fish or he'll end up covered in a rash from head to toe. Obviously he can't eat fish either.

Another friend, while not allergic to fish or shellfish, cannot digest beef, pork, mutton/lamb, venison or any other variety of meat from hooved animals. She's had this problem since early childhood. She can, however, eat poultry (chicken, turkey, duck, etc.), fish & shellfish.

Okay, let me rephrase. I am largely indifferent to the taste of cheese. As far as tastes go, it's not that interesting.

I can't handle even the slightest whiff of fishy-tasting. Tuna in a can I can usually do. And I once had some monkfish that was quite delicious. But for the most part, blechhhhhh. I hate even just being inside seafood restaurants because of the smell.

Interesting. I've never met anyone with this challenge.

Do you have any problems with things like Zantac, Pepcid, etc.?

You go to Red Lobster only once per year, and that's for Endless Shrimp. Glorious gluttony.
 
2012-10-02 08:18:15 PM
I grew up on the Gulf and I live on the ocean. I could live on fish, shellfish in particular. This is why I don't go to Dead Lobster.

I don't know since I've never taken any of those. I am allergic to several other allergy medicines as well, such as Claritin.

LOL. You're allergic to histamines and allergic to antihistimines. How are you even alive?

If you don't like the Red Lobster, just march your ass outside, cross the parking lot, and go to Olive Garden instead.

So you get allergic reactions to allergy medicines? That's a new one to me, and I've got a bit of weird chemistry myself. I know I can get a really strong caffeine-like buzz off of Benadryl. I'm also one of few people who have found that Zyrtec is in fact addictive to some people, despite all the refusal of that company to acknowledge that. I gave it up completely because if I didn't take it every day, I'd get incredibly itchy everywhere until I took another dose. Usually hit right around 48 hours after the last dose. And I know my mother can take one of the really powerful painkillers, I can't remember which one, and it's a pure stimulant.

When we went to the Hilltop Steakhouse, I'd order chicken.

Thanks for the definition. I was just about to reach for my dictionary.

I'm not even sure what that means. 'Cheese' isn't a flavour, anymore than 'meat' is a flavour. Trust me, I could feed you something like gorgonzola, which you still might hate, but you certainly wouldn't describe it as uninteresting.
 
2012-10-02 08:57:07 PM
I only eat sea food if I'm within 20 miles of an active port. And if I'm there, I sure as hell ain't eating at Red Lobster. When you've spent your whole life by the ocean, frozen just won't cut it.

Alcohol acts as a violent stimulant to me, even the smallish amount found in NyQuil. My chemistry is pretty damned weird.

Interesting enough, I found out I was allergic to Benadryl in the ER. Where I was being treated for a severe allergic reaction to shellfish. They had to give me medication to counteract the Benadryl. I guess if you're allergic to something, finding that out in the ER is one of the better places to do so.

When asked about the risks involved making such a dramatic change to the menu, Clarence Otis, CEO at Darden, which also owns Olive Garden, says: "the biggest risk would be to not change."

That's deep, Clarence. You know what the purpose of life is? A life of purpose.

I used to love the cheesy biscuits at Red Lobster too. And then I stopped smoking dope.

I love their "surf and turf" combo...Tuna sandwich with beef gravy!

Red Lobster didn't seem as bad 10-15 years ago, but maybe teenagers don't have high expectations.
I could have sworn the food was a higher quality back then, although I don't eat seafood. The chicken was better. The fries were better.

Bathia_Mapes: Say what you will about Red Lobster. They're by no means great cuisine (the same company owns Olive Garden)...


Huh, interesting. So both places have their bread product as the highlight of the meal.

They should open up a place to get a combo of Red Lobster cheese biscuits and Olive Garden breadsticks. 
Just walk in and get a basket of them and then go to a better place for the main course.
 
2012-10-02 09:01:20 PM
Of that guy vetoes red lobster, I'm gonna veto all of his alternate choices. It will be called a dick move, to which I will respond: "Is it?" Get the cheese bread and get wasted at the bar, fark it
 
2012-10-02 09:02:16 PM
They're becoming the History Channel of corporate full-service restauranteering.
 
2012-10-02 09:03:12 PM
Or get a menu and tell them you want a few minutes to look over the menu, eat the free basket of cheese bread, then get wasted somewhere else
 
2012-10-02 09:03:42 PM
Red Lobster is really terrible for seafood.

Also, there are a lot of you who have some shiatty genes. Not having allergies, I can't even imagine what garbage you all must go through.
 
2012-10-02 09:03:53 PM
In terms of weird allergies or whatever this would be called. Neither me nor my sister can take a regular multivitamin. They will destroy our stomachs. She found a childrens gummi version that she can tolerate. I stick to cigarettes and whiskey to keep me strong...

You are my evil twin. I can handle canned tuna, but anything else is just nasty. And yes, I have tried different types of seafood. Even tried cooking salmon at home..... never again.
