Great Company Bad Food

This last Friday was the end of Veronica's complete store remodel. It has been a grueling 5 weeks for her. Because of the amount of work and time that she had put in doing the remodel, I thought that the least that I could do for her was to take her out to eat. Around here, we have plenty of restaurants to pick from. At first we were thinking about going to the Olive Garden for their lunch time special...all you can eat soup, salad and bread sticks. Because of how hot it was yesterday, I wasn't sure that having hot soup on a 90 degree day would be such a great idea. So we decided to go to Joes Crab Shack. We had been to Joes a couple of times in the past and each time we had gone, things had changed for the worse. The last time we went, we told each other that we would not be returning there again. So what did we do? We ended back at Joes Crab Shack. My meal was ok but Veronica did not like hers at all, including the salad. It was not what I had in my mind, when I thought that taking her our for a good meal would be "congratulations for a job well done". After finishing our meal and leaving, we were heading back to our car and I looked around and from the parking lot, there was a couple of restaurants that would of been much better choices...Longhorn Steakhouse and Cracker Barrel. All were within walking distance of Joes Crab Shack. I will take Veronica out again for a nice meal, to make up for the lousy one that she got but I promise her....it WON'T be Joes Crab Shack that we go to.

Ugh I absolutely HATE going out to eat anymore. It seems like NO ONE can get the food right. It's so disappointing especially since you're paying extra to have them cook it for you. I'm sorry her night out didn't go as planned.

Good morning Rick:
First you gave it a shot for a nice meal as I told Veronica all of those place closed down in our Area of Fl. I went once went with friends and My Hubby and I hate all kinds of seafood. they place was dirty and I hated it so I went out side and waited for the others and that night didn't eat! Olive Garden is always a great choice. and you guys could have ordered off the regular menu and not the soup and salad . you get a "A" for effort. Next time will be better I am sure.
~ God Bless ~
Hugs:o)

I only came to this post to legitimize my visit to "snakes and sex"...slight of hand you see.

I was surprised you went to that place more than once. My guess is, at one time it must have been a good place to eat.
Best wishes on the next night out.
