    We're going to Orlando in a couple of weeks, and decided to splurge and have dinner one evening at Emeril's. The menu looks great.

    Please send money!!!!

    I heard from him several months ago, but nothing since I declined to send him the requested information . . .

    Outback now ranks at the bottom of my list and not for the food, but for the service. The server forgot half the drink order, didn't put in the entree order until we were there 40+ minutes, at which point they'd run out of the prime rib 2 of my party ordered, and then when the food finally arrived, they put blue cheese dressing on my steak salad when I specified that blue cheese dressing makes me sick and requested ranch, which the server assured me was a possible substitute. Once they fixed the salad, the food was actually pretty good--the steaks were cooked properly and tasted great. Then I overheard the same server convince the adjacent table that there was no such thing as a strawberry margarita. Maybe they can't make them at Outback, but several of the biggest local Mexican restaurants serve them. I knew there was a reason I hadn't been to Outback in over 10 years!

    I've got to keep an eye out for Flemming's prime rib special now; they're pricier, but when they have the special, they most definitely have prime rib in stock.

    I hear ya! I'm still mad about the time I ordered the avocado salad at South of the Border and it came with no avocados. When I complained the server said none of the avocados they had were ripe. I told her she should have told me that when I ordered it. It wasn't like the restaurant was busy. We were there at an off time and there were maybe 2 or 3 other tables. They still charged me full price. That's the ONLY time I've refused to leave a tip.
    Count your blessings!

    That's when the server is supposed to return to your table and tell you, so that you have the option to order something else. Not only would I have not left a tip, I would have been speaking with the manager. You're nicer than I am - I would have insisted on a discount as well. There's no excuse for lazy service!

    Sometimes I have trouble being assertive in the moment. In retrospect, I should have sent it back and ordered something else, or just eaten the complimentary tortilla chips and salsa.

    I have always thought Outback was way overrated. Everytime I have eaten there I didn't think the quality of food was that good.
