I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Red Lobster. I received a gift card to facilitate my review promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
My son started back to school two weeks ago. Trust me, it’s an understatement to say, “Where did this summer go?” Last week I thought it would be a great idea for my husband and I took pick our son up from school and surprise him with dinner (albeit, a little earlier than usual for us) at Red Lobster. When we pick him up he’s always starving, so eating at 3:30 in the afternoon would suit him just fine.
Besides, it was the first meal of the day for me on this particular day, so I was starving, too. Thank goodness for the “Endless Shrimp” deal at Red Lobster!
We took advantage of the “endless” part, too.
You can enjoy endless plates of your favorite shrimp dishes, or mix and match to try them all for just $15.99. Entrees come with a salad and unlimited (one of my favorite things in the whole world) Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
The shrimp options include:
- New! Spicy Soy-Wasabi Grilled Shrimp
- Hand Breaded Shrimp
- Garlic Shrimp Scampi
- Shrimp Linguini Alfredo
I chose the Garlic Shrimp Scampi and thought I’d give the new Spicy Soy Wasabi Grilled shrimp a try and my husband ordered the Hand Breaded Shrimp and the Shrimp Linguini Alfredo. Our son decided he’d rather have the mac ‘n cheese… but then ended up eating a lot of his Dad’s hand breaded shrimp.
I’ve eaten the Garlic Shrimp Scampi at Red Lobster many times before, so I knew I’d love it, but I was a little nervous that the Spicy Soy-Wasabi Grilled Shrimp might be too “spicy”. It wasn’t. In fact, it had just a hint of spiciness. I would describe it as almost a BBQ flavor. It was bold but not overpowering. I quite enjoyed it.
My husband had never tried the Shrimp Linguini Alfredo before and he was very pleased. It was a rich creamy Alfredo sauce with perfectly grilled shrimp.
Confession: I’m counting calories, so the endless shrimp is perfect for me since it’s a low-calorie food, but when our waiter came back to get another order of our shrimp (remember it IS endless), I couldn’t resist to get me some of Red Lobster’s delicious Hand Breaded Shrimp. Hey it wasn’t fair that my husband and son were eating it in front of me and going on about how delicious it was… right?
So what’s a girl to do? Well for the sake of review purposes — try them myself, of course!
Back for its 12th year, Endless Shrimp at Red Lobster is one of the restaurant’s most popular, highly anticipated promotions, and it was obvious to us why.
I love Red Lobster. We usually celebrate special occasions there several times a year and I think we’re going to start a tradition of eating at Red Lobster at the beginning of every school year from now on.
What special occasions do you dine at Red Lobster for?
