Remington's Seafood Grill

Last night, we went to Remington's Seafood Grill in Addison with the Wades ,for our monthly dinner. Although Remington's has been around for 25 years, I have never heard of it.

It is hard to find a seafood restaurant that is just plain old seafood without Asian fusion or something fancy. Remington's is just that.

We were starving by the time we sat down and I was very disappointed when the waiter brought the bread. It was cold bread that didn't have much taste at all. Since I am a bread lover, the bread is always important to me. Remington's quickly redeemed itself when the gumbo came. It was pure seafood, no rice or filler. I ordered the Caesar salad and it was one of the best that I have ever had. It had homemade croutons and lots of Parmesan cheese.

I decided to order the crab cakes since the menu said they were "Dallas' best homemade crab cakes." There was no filler, but I am not sure that it was all crab. It tasted like a little crab mixed with some type of fish. They were a little on the bland side. I had a baked potato and it was great. Pops had the stuffed flounder with lobster sauce. I didn't taste it, but I think I would have liked it better than the crab cakes.

We were too full to try dessert, but the flourless chocolate cake sounded really good along with the Key Lime Pie. I would definitely give Remington's another try. Note to Remington's: Get some better bread. There are plenty of bakeries around that can fix you up,

I read your comment about the breakfast casserole ... I thought it was so funny that it was posted on the diet devo post. :o)
That casserole is perfect for a brunch or when you have guests staying the night and it serves a lot of people!
