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

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!"

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

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.


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

Bathia_Mapes: 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

LeroyBourne: I knew a guy that cooked there, it was a joke. 95% of all the food went on some conveyor belt impingement oven. Basically, it was burger king, but you're paying 10x the amount.

Fuggin Bizzy: 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."

Clarence is to philosophy as Red Lobster is to seafood.

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.

AverageAmericanGuy: macadamnut: Bathia_Mapes: You can outgrow allergies. My son was allergic to watermelon when he was a little kid. Now he can eat it with no problems. However, that doesn't apply to all allergies. You more inclined to outgrow a mild allergy to something than one that causes anaphylaxis.

But the reverse is also true. I ate shrimp and mussels until I was 27, and then almost got the surprise of my life: death at age 27.

That must have been tough. Luckily you recovered from, you know, death.

My brother, the lovable freak, insists on celebrating his birthday at Red Lobster every year.
 
The last time I joined him I had a girl-drink fruityblended headache that lasted for weeks.  It was like drinking gallons of ice cream seperated into seperate glasses, with a splash of rum interspersed amongst them.
 
That is my Red Lobster story, I hope you enjoyed it.

laid back w/bud light: kimmygibblershomework
So you expect me to take advice on seafood from someone living 2 thousand miles from a saltwater fish? GFY, talk to me when your family has 50 years of living off the sea. Michigan is what? a hotbed for icefishing? You send me some walleye fillets, I'll send you some striper fillets


Could you possibly be any more of an arrogant judgmental coastie douchebag prick? Here's the deal about those of us who claim to kind of enjoy Red Lobster... most of us don't have the luxury of living right next to the farking ocean, so have to take what we can get and make the best of it. Maybe it is crap to folks like you who can just hop in the family fishing boat and trawl for your own Lobster (or however in the fark you catch them,,, some kind of little trap, I think), but to those of us who DO live 2000 miles from the coast don't have that pleasure. Christ, how would you like it if I started slamming on you coasties about not being able to discern a decent steak even if the cow it came from bit you in the ass? I don't see a lot of cattle ranches in New England, so by your logic you'd better never claim to know a damn thing about beef. Oh and that "family has 50 years of living off the sea" crap is meaningless arrogant BS.

Christ on a crutch, lighten the fark up, Francis.

The grocery store you j/o. It is pretty farking easy to steam crab legs and melt butter, shiat you could do both in the microwave which is probably how they do it at RL.

I only eat crab legs at Red Lobster, since they're all frozen right after they're caught, anyway. They may not be the best crab legs, but they're the most consistent you can get for the least amount of money. My local Hooters used to sell crab legs for $12/pound, and they were absolute shiat. Small, overcooked, and they smelled vaguely like the ugly waitress.
