The memo that is posted in all Red Lobsters says that the Rock Lobster meal (the large tail) will be off the menu until 10/30/06 at the earliest. We do have a new meal (that is not in the menu) of two Maine Lobster tails that we can direct the guests to if they really miss the large Rock Lobster meal.
Red Lobster has taken references to the Rock Lobster out of it's menus and literature, but in their amazing ineptitude, when they reprinted all of the menus (for over 700 stores!) they failed to remove the picture of the ROCK LOBSTER from the front of the Dinner menu. Quality work there at our corporate head quarters. It amazes me that the board of directors tolerate this type of incompetence.
We get this reminder every day in our store:
ROCK LOBSTER DINNER DELETION REMINDER
As a reminder, on Tuesday, 6/13, the Rock Lobster Dinner was removed from the menu until late October. Please remember to:
* Use the information on your Lobster Talk Cards to redirect guests to other menu items
* Make sure guests are aware of the price of the Maine Tail dinner if they choose that item
So in summary, your Lobster meals will now be more expensive, and you can no longer order the largest of Rock Lobster tails.
