Warning About A Bad Restaurant!!

Kitties, today’s Trouble’s Tall Tales has been pre-empted by this business review.  Last evening, I decided I deserved a night out on the town (with Mommie’s credit card of course!).  I put on my best bling-bling jeweled collar and called for a limo.  I picked out a new restaurant here in town that everyone has been raving about. 
This seafood restaurant has a very unique concept.  You go in and pick out your live entrée from the tanks.  The line outside was quite long and there seemed to be a lot of parents wanting to bring their children along (children at a four star restaurant??), but I decided to wait out my turn.  After entering, I started my tour of the food tanks. 
First up was some kind of strange black and white seafood that they were really pushing.  They were even making them jump through the air to prove to diners how healthy they were.  However, since there were a lot of diners interested in this entrée, I moved on.  The next food area contained a lovely selection of colorful yellow striped fish that looked yummy.  I decided on these for my entrée.  However, when I tapped on the tank to let the waiter know, all heck broke out.  The waiter, who this place forces to wear wet suits as a uniform (so unflattering on the waistline!) came running out and shooed me away!!
Since seafood didn’t seem to be in my future, I decided to check out the pork and fowl area of the serving line.  The pigs they had there had tusks like some wild pigs I have seen, but oddly enough, no legs and really weird tails. I decided to pass on the pork.   By the time I got to the fowl serving area, I was starving.  Kitties, this place served the weirdest chicken I have ever seen!  They were shaped all wrong and were black and white.  They also walked very strange….but I was at this point desperate.  Since I did not want to have to see another unflattering wet suit walking towards me, I just jumped into the holding area to get my own dinner.  Would you believe it, management called the cops and started chasing me around!!!  Me, a paying customer!!
Well, I tell you, I will NEVER go back to this establishment again, no matter how good the reviews are, and I wish to post this warning to all of the kitties out there as this restaurant has multiple locations throughout the world. 
Kitties, DO NOT go to any location of a restaurant using the business name of Aquarium or Sea World.  The service at these restaurants is simply HORRIBLE!!

Oh my! It sounds like you had a horrible experience at this new restaurant. I don't blame you one bit for never wanting to go back there. Thanks so much for the warning. I appreciate it muchly.

This place does sound bogus. I will keep that in mind, Callie.

That must have been a terrible visit indeed. We'll remember to never visit any of their chain.

Well, that's too bad! A restaurant called Sea World had such possibilities!

Callie! If you go to my post from August 11, 2011 you will see I too have one of these non-cooperative restaurants right near my very own house. It's a disgrace! How can they tantalize us with such bounty and then refuse our perfectly understandable request for some sustenance?? It's outrageous!

Dear Callie,
Me has never been to one of those restaurants, as me has lived only on the Prairies and in the Mountains, but Licorice lived with Mommy and daddy on the wet coast and he told me about them! He said pretty much the same as yous. Me do like the Home BBQ restaurant though! My Daddy is the chef and he always makes sure he cooks something me likes.
Kisses

Sea food is my favorite, so I'll remember to stay away from those establishments!

what a horrible experience, Callie!!! Well, I don't like anything fishy flavored, so it'll be no problem to stay away from those places. Though the view might be entertaining.

Oh you poor thing! What a terrible place. I'd report them to the BBB if I were you... MOL

Purrhaps you could organise a picket line on this restaurant telling anyone in the queue how bad the service is.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
