Having lunch can quickly turn into a normal routine of the usual sandwich with chips or a microwavable meal. But why settle for the typical lunch when Red Lobster offers their seafood lunch specials for only $6.99?
Red Lobster’s scenery is like stepping onto a “Little Mermaid” set. The lobster tank, anchor and dark atmosphere sets the under the sea mood. I was promptly seated and served cheese biscuits. The hot, steamy biscuits were the kind of biscuits only your grandmother can cook.
I ordered the Cajun Chicken Linguini Alfredo a spicy, tender chicken breast tossed in a garlic Parmesan cream sauce on a bed of linguini. The plate was picture perfect but it was quickly destroyed as I indulged in the meal.
The zesty meal had my taste buds dancing within minutes of its consumption. Of course you can’t have a meal without a beverage. I recommend the Sunset Strawberry Smoothie, a cold, berry delightfully trapped inside a tall glass, with a plump strawberry tossed on top.
If you are extremely hungry you should definitely order their Warm Chocolate Chip Lava Cookie, a thick chocolate chip cookie with a molten chocolate center, topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce. The lip smacking dessert is enough to share with two people and every bite is a guilty pleasure.
Other options on the menu include Crunch-Fried Fish Sandwich, a fish on a toasted sourdough roll with melted Monterey Jack, lettuce and tomatoes, served with freshly cooked potato chips.
Also try some of their lunch classics such as the Sailor’s Platter, hand-breaded fried shrimp, garlic shrimp scampi and an oven-broiled fish fillet. Or be creative and invent your own lunch. The crafty options are limitless and should be explored.
Don’t take my word for it go try Red Lobster for yourself. Dive into a sea full of magnificent food from top to bottom. You will certainly find a meal that suffices.
