Good dishes are all about contrast, ie: richness balanced with acidity, soft balanced with crunch, so basically you yanked the chair from underneath them. Do let me know what restaurant can pull off a good meal for you though.
Anyways, I'd just like to say, I think UK is what it is. Sometimes good, sometimes not. I'm not expecting greatness so I've never been disappointed, and either way, not really breaking the bank to eat there. Recently tried beef pretzel dogs, which were decent, not outstanding, but great company to beer. Their flatbread pizza has always been solid also, and I'm hoping to try some even better dishes once the growing season is under way.
"Anyways," the soft diet request was just one negative point raised in a series of postings from diners dissatisfied with UK in one way or another, so no, I don't think that complaint was unfair. And yes, it "is what it is" like practically every other thing under the sun "is what it is," but apparently what it isn't, at least according to posters to this forum, is a pleasant and rewarding dining experience.
