Led Robster

Cheddar Bay Biscuits...what a great way to start what would become a fantastically huge meal, everytime I visited the great RL. I couldn't resist ordering a pre-meal cocktail at the bar (at which time my first basket of the piping hot delicacies would arrive). By the time my table beeper went off I was ready to party...seafood style! Crab & seafood stuffed mushrooms, coconut shrimp, artichoke & lobster dip...oh man my lips are fighting with each other right now just thinking about it. And as you sit joyfully at the table munching on appz it soon becomes apparent that so much more deliciousness awaits you! The pre-entree Caesar salad (one of the best around); the fish, seared, blackened, you name it. Even the cajun shrimp pasta can make the meanest pirate smile and sing a sea shanty. I'm not sure that I've ever saved room for dessert but I will say this: when G-d created man he broke the mold. When G-d created Red Lobster, he broke the baking dish!

    Here in landlocked New Mexico, I will resist the temptation to visit the one 'seafood' restaurant, Red Lobster, whenever I have a hankering for a halibut, and I will use your post a reference. Luckily, I will be in San Diego next week!

    CraigieFresh: Is Led Lobster related to Red Lobster? Perhaps it is a lobster with a collar?

    Incidentally, I truly enjoy their bisquits. Unforunately the pics on the menu do not match what is delivered. Their photographers do a wonderful enhancement job.

    I've just always been a fan of mixing it up, ya know. When I go to Chili's for baby back ribs or even just to "hang back" with some pals I like to sing the BABY BACK BABY BACK song in the men's room. That usually gets the other guests talking!

    Honestly with all the generic Calabash style restaurants i've eaten at in NC and SC, i'd say Red Lobster is about as good. Yes the Calabash places use some local catch but Sysco trucks are in there everyday, and Sysco has everything- including pre-breaded seafood. Where i live in Chicago there's not that many fresh seafood places. Good ones but not that many. Easy to run over to RL on a weeknight for a pretty good meal, not great but good.

    You are kidding, right? Seriously, Craigie, you are entitled to your opinion, but I would say that you are definitely in the minority here. http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2576

    I'm guessing that Craigie is one of those college students who think they are clever and funny by making a parody of the site. I'm all for parody and humor, but the problem is that he is neither clever nor funny. Just a kid in cyberspace who can't get laid so he finds other ways to entertain himself in between porn sites.

    Just the fact that he can elicit a response from me justifies what he is doing. Kind of like a kid acting bad just so he can garner attention.

    C'mon Craigie, if you're going to do this, at least be original or funny.

    Saps I really don't understand where this is coming from. I'm many years out of college. I'm a fan of food. I guess I could sit here and prove it to you but I'd rather spend my time reading the interesting stories and facts on this site. If you don't like me or something about me and my stories, stop reading them.

    That was fun, Craigie. Red Lobster "nein nein nicht nicht nein". We have a nice local place in LEX called "The Ketch" and another one called "Regattas" that would both individually sink the Red Lobster's Battleship with one "kaboom". Ha ha paying $14.99 for Long John Silver's quality food is not fun. I hope you were joking re your adoration for this place but either way it is all fun

    Thanks AB! Yeah I'm usually half kidding, half starving.

    You know how people like certain songs or music groups that they themselves consider to be "embarrassing" but they love them anyway...secretly? I feel like the same phenomenon exsists with restaurants.

    Sometimes I think we have come a long, long way from the original intent of this Forum, Roadfood, as defined by Michael and Jane Stern. I guess I'm just not "hip" enough to understand most of the posts that show up here anymore. What fun it would be to get back to where it was in the beginning.

    Or then possibly we've come to the end of the line and it's time to call it quits. I would hate to see that happen as I've been a Michael and Jane fan as long as most of you, and maybe longer than many of you, and hate to see what has been a very good idea and also an interesting idea, go down the drain.

    Don't worry Donna,

    Everyone here will always have me to put things back into perspective, even if it means I have to bring back all my baseball threads and "regional cuisine defined by location thread" to cancel out the other dribble.

    I live in the NW burbs of Chicago.I can count on one hand the number of seafood places within 10 miles. Let's see, Bob Chinn's Crabhouse, Crab and Things, Pappadeux (franchise), sushi bars galore blah blah. I know RL is not a roadfood thing, but it works for many, and quite honestly my roadfood adventures take place on Sundays, my only day off. And btw i've not eaten at Red Lobster since 08/02/03.

    Roadfood.com sure has come a long way. There are currently 28,000+ members and when you look at some of the older topics, there are literally thousands of views. I think this forum has become more of a reference for people who might like to try something different in their travels.

    Donna, I believe that every day members who might never have posted even one time are searching for topics and viewing a gold mine of information and visiting places mentioned on this forum - and true roadfood places in addition to chains like Red Lobster.

    It's never going to be the way it was when there were a couple of hundred members but the data base is built for the future.

    Hello All,
    I do not like seafood, but the wife does. And RL has a smoking area and serve good beer.
    So, I like RL. They give me a good salad, good fries, and yes, good biscuits. And did I
    mention the beer?
    Red Lobster may not be the primo of seafood, but it offers for some of us mountain folks
    a taste, (don't know how good as I said I dislike seafood) a taste of the ocean.
    Our local RL is always full on the weekends, and the atmosphere is sweet and calm. It is
    nice to find a place to relax while you eat.
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    I'm not a big seafood fan either, but a salad and biscuits at RL is an okay meal--kind of like soup, salad and breadsticks at Olive Garden. It's always been my rule of thumb to stick to salads at chain restaurants since it's pretty hard to screw up a salad. Since I am stuck with a family of completely unadventurous eaters (my family plus in-laws) I have had more than my share of experiences with chains.

    I find it hard to believe that in any town/city with a RL there is not at least ONE other restaurant that has much better seafood, better prices, and a hell of a lot better customer service. (And I bet it's not a chain, either.)

    Also, I love soup! RL: serve me THIS:

    I agree with you adjudicator. RL is god awful. I live in the middle of Canada, far from either coast and there are still better seafood places than RL. If your town is large enough to warrant at RL, I imagine it has some other establishment with decent seafood. Check out an ethnic restaurant- some of the best seafood I've come across have been from either Chinese(reputable, not white trash) or Japanese restaurants. The Chinese restaurants usually have pretty good prices too.

    Fieldthistle, take a trip down to the grocery store. In the frozen food aisle, you will find green boxes labeled "Mrs. Paul's." Grab a box of the least threatening looking stuff (heavily breaded fried shrimp works for most). Then, hit the beer aisle -- they will have something good for about $6/six-pack (a BUCK a beer!). Head home, pop the shrimp on a baking sheet, open a cold beer and light up. Same meal you are going to have at the Red Lobster.....1/3 the price!

    Having a beer (by yourself) with frozen shrimp at 1/3 of the cost of RL is my idea of fun. If my friends want to go to RL and eat, I go along too. We enjoy each others company and sit and visit for awhile. So what if we are eating frozen shrimp? The biscuits are warm, the coleslaw is sweet and creamy and they have those wonderful crunchy/salty on the outside small baked potatoes. I would rather have a RL baked potato then a large (plate size) mealy potato somewhere else. Any way, I'am a creature of habit and I always order the coconut (though be it frozen) shrimp. The pineapple colada sauce is worth it. Certainly not your local beachside fresh shrimp place, but when your 6 1/2 hrs. from the nearest ocean, then RL is OK.
