I am going to let you in on a little secret: I love food! I especially love food that is freshly cooked but not cooked by me (I do not enjoy cooking very often). So every Friday my family and I head out to dinner to enjoy some freshly cooked foods and while there are many restaurants near us, we very often choose Red Lobster because it has to be our favorite place to visit!
Recently, we dined at our local Red Lobster during their Endless Shrimp Event and I cannot tell you how good it truly was. We never want this event to end!
As I mentioned we typically head out to dinner on Friday’s but we actually arrive before 5 PM to avoid the crowds. This night was no exception and we knew that with this event going on it would already be quite busy. We arrived right around 4 PM and were able to sit right down so I highly recommend arriving early!
The first thing we did was order drinks. I don’t like to drink (it makes me sleepy) so I don’t mind being the designated driver. This gave my husband the opportunity to try 2 new amazing beer cocktails on the Red Lobster menu. The first one was Seaside Shandy which features Shock Top Belgian White Ale, Cointreau and fresh citrus juices.
The second was the Angry Lobster which features Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider, tropical fruit juices and a kick of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey.
I tasted both of them but my husband and I both agreed that the Seaside Shandy was the best. We both aren’t big on cinnamon whiskey but if you are, I bet you will really like the Angry Lobster. Did I mention that you also get to keep the awesome glass the beer cocktails are severed in? Cool right?
Next came the delicious food. Of course, we ordered the Endless Shrimp meal (I added on a side of steamed crab legs- YUM). With the Endless Shrimp you start out with 3 different kinds of shrimp (from a select menu) and 2 sides. The shrimp selections include:
- NEW! Pineapple Habanero Coconut Bites – Coconut shrimp bites tossed in pineapple habanero sauce
- Teriyaki Grilled Shrimp – Classic guest favorite and back by popular demand, grilled shrimp brushed with soy-ginger glaze
- Hand-Breaded Shrimp – Hand-breaded shrimp fried to a golden brown
- Garlic Shrimp Scampi – Oven-broiled shrimp in garlic, white wine and butter
- Shrimp Linguini Alfredo – Tender shrimp in a garlic Parmesan cream sauce on a bed of linguini
I ended up trying them all and my favorite had be the Pineapple Habanero Coconut Bites and the Teriyaki Grilled Shrimp. Both were absolutely delicious. I ended up ordering more of the Pineapple Habanero Coconut Bites but asked for the sauce on the side to keep that extra crunch of the coconut bites.
The best part about this Endless Shrimp promotion is you can order as much shrimp as you can eat AND try as many different kinds as you want. You can really get your Shrimp fix all in one night! Of course, don’t forget you also get soup or salad and unlimited cheddar bay biscuits!
