Red Lobster ? - moved from Boston board
What is the closest Red Lobster to south central MA ?? I don't think there even is one in MA is there ?
Dear, dear Jimbosox!! What serious Chowhound would want Red Lobster when one can get real, decent lobster and seafood... (understand, I'm not trying to flame you - just trying to bring a fellow Chowhound to his senses ;-)
When I lived in Tucson I ate there out of desperation (I craved seafood SO much). Plus, those ads got to me.
Horrible, horrible stuff. Teeny, tasteless shrimp, typical chain food. (We did, however, drive all the way to Phoenix from Tucson for some fried clams - that place wasn't a chain, and it was worth it!).
As I remember, the only thing worth the trip to RL were the rolls they served..
There are so many great seafood restaurants around... I'm not in the south central Mass area, but I'm sure others can suggest - hey, and there is that all-you-can-eat lobster buffet. I think it's in Connecticut.
My mantra is ANYWHERE but Red Lobster!
There aren't any in MA. There are 2 in Ct with the closest being in Wethersfield. It's 103 miles from Boston.
Yeah all in all it really doesnt add up to being a good time for me. I am not that much into seafood either. I would love to swap it out for maybe one to Longhorn's or Outback. When it comes to seafood if I want lobsters or steamers, any of that I just head to Galilee and buy them right off of the fishing boats, seems to make more sense for a Native New Englander.
