Red Lobster Restaurant Review

: Choice is key in Sarasota, where a wide variety of restaurants line up on each side of the lengthy Tamiami Trail, also known as U.S. 41 South, and Red Lobster is certainly a viable choice. Those who crave reasonably priced, well-prepared seafood need look no further. 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. Combination platters that allow the diner to mix-and-match are popular, and 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.
