I love seafood… and tilapia is one of my favorites!
So it should come as no surprise that one of my favorites when I go out to eat is the Wood-Fire Grilled Tilapia at Red Lobster. It’s what I get EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. I go there. Without fail.
Love the Caesar salad at Red Lobster. LOVE their biscuits.
I finally convinced my parents to go there about a year and a half ago for the first time. Since then, I have gone with them twice more — the most recent time was today. In fact, we went today solely for their wood-fire grilled tilapia (my mom tried a piece of mine last time and loved it as well). Two out of the three times I’ve gone with them, however, they have for some reason not had Tilapia available.
This is despite the fact that it’s listed on their menu and on their list of “Today’s Fresh Fish”. I was not informed that they didn’t have any Tilapia until I placed my order, and was quite disappointed. Especially because this isn’t the first time that has happened.
We went during peak dinner time (7 PM), so it is not like we went really late and they might have ran out of tilapias by then. If we went really late, and they didn’t have any available at that point, I would have attributed it to that.
While I liked the Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp that I ordered today, it wasn’t what I wanted. I go to Red Lobster pretty much for their wood-fire grilled tilapia and their biscuits and if I am not sure I’ll be getting that — I don’t know if it is worth going there!
