Went to red lobster last weekend and my whole family ended up with a virus that has been going around. When your employees are ill, it’s best to let them have time off. If it wasn’t an employee who was ill, then I can only assume the cleaning efforts need to improve.

Beyond that the food prices are much higher than they should be. Why pay $15 for a meal I can get from IHOP for $10. I could understand if the fish was great or a larger portion. But it tasted like something I could have purchased at WalMart and cooked myself.

My family loves Red Lobster and Olive Garden and we are trying to determine if the problem is specifically that location or Darden restaurants as a whole.


So is red lobster your family’s singular channel to the outside world? That’s unusual.
