My wife and I used to be occasional guests at Red Lobster in Colorado. After almost 10 years, we visited this Overland Park location for lunch. What a disappointment. We both ordered the Seafood Grill: lobster tail, scallops and shrimp. It came with wild rice, mashed potatos, a salad and their greasy cheese biscuits. We both ordered the Ceasar Salad and there was not enough dressing on it. The main meal came and it was almost unedible. It had obviously been processed with flavorings to simulate a char grilled result. This made it incredibly salty and made it taste like bacon drippings. For anybody who has had grilled lobster or grilled shrimp, you know that there is a distinctly sweet taste. My wife ordered a Margarita and complained that there was no alcohol in it. To add to our disppointment, both of us had intestinal distress about 2 hours later complete with all the accompanying side effects...This was the first and last time at this Red Lobster It will likely be a long time until we visit another one of these Industrial Mass Production Seafood Restaurants again. We will stick with tried and true favorites like Bristol, McCormick and Schmicks and Bonefish Grill.
