Chain Wars: Red Lobster, Captain D’s bare their claws

My my MY, restaurant folks are getting a bit sensitive during these difficult times, it appears.

That’s based on the big ol’ spat going on between Red Lobster and Captain D’s Seafood Kitchen.

Captain D’s has landed the latest blow in the form of a press release that mocks Red Lobster and its cease-and-desist letter that Red Lobster sent complaining of Captain D’s rather, um, aggressive ad campaign.

Oh well, there are always other fish in the sea …

That’s on the undercard. One places that passes itself off as fast food against a place that serves fast food quality but tries to pass itself off as a “good” restaurant. The loser is your palate.

What’s to compare! The food at either establishment can’t compare. Real seafood is easy and affordable in this area. Check out Sweeney’s in Centerville, you won’t be disappointed or spend alot of money. Check out their sandwiches, fish and chips—fantastic!

So Captain D’s is claiming superiority on the account that the same quantity of food is cheaper at their restaurants?! I’d guess that most of us choose where to dine based on quality rather than quantity.

Just so you know the biscuits at Red Lobster are Cheddar Bay Biscuits and they are not deep fried.

Domino’s has similar commercials where they burn a letter from Subway’s attorneys.

I like them both, but where I drop in depends on whether I want to throw away $20 for a meal or just $5 - either way I enjoy the food, but those deep fried biscuits at RL are to die for.
