Coastal Flats in Fairfax

We had a busy day after our golf lessons. Instead of hitting up our regular pho joint, we ventured out towards Fairfax Town Center to buy a blender (which didn't work), and have lunch before seeing the Batman movie at the IMAX theater in Chantilly. We ended up at Coastal Flats in Fairfax Corner. 
He ordered a cheeseburger.
It looks decent, although a skinny burger patty. Unfortunately, the burger was over-salted and he didn't like his choice.
I chose a lobster roll with sauteed spinach instead of the roasted corn.
The lobster was cut in nice chunks. 
Service at Great American Restaurants follow a formula, with an extreme emphasis on customer satisfaction. It was a little creepy to see the staff walk over and plaster on a super fake smile as they interacted with their guests. 
In hindsight, we should have just gone to pho or kabob place, or even to the nearby Chipotle for burrito bowls. Oh well, chalk this up with the Uno Restaurant experience. We need to remember to stick with what we know, or to the ethnic restaurants where a subpar meal doesn't cost over $50 for two.
