Red Lobster Restaurant Review

: Tourists and locals alike love seafood, and this Florida-based franchise has found the formula---lots of shrimp, grouper and seafood combo platters, augmented by selections for the non-seafood customer with items such as Santa Fe chicken, steak and pasta. And while the prices and specific menu items may change occasionally, there is always a wide selection of fresh fish, lobster, shrimp, scampi and pasta dishes. Often there is a menu feature that shows a picture of the fish, a brief description and then a box to check your choice. It’s almost seafood-by-the-numbers, but it’s effective.
