It has taken me two trips to Lynnwood to figure out where Red Lobster is located. The first time, my GPS led me to a residential area and I gave up. I didn’t want to use data on my phone cause…you know…I’m asian and I hate being charged for unnecessary things I don’t need.
Red Lobster is a chain seafood restaurant in the United States. They specialize in seafood and usually draw in large crowds on the weekends. We saw that they were having a $15 4-course meal, so TaiwaneseGirl, CanuckGirl and I decided to try it out. It’s a good price and it didn’t seem like it could go wrong. In the 4-course meal it gave you a few choices below.
- New England Clam Chowder
- Creamy Potato Bacon Soup
- Fresh Garden Salad
- Fresh Caesar Salad.
- Grilled Honey-BBQ Shrimp Skewers
- Garlic Alfredo Shrimp-and-Scallop Pasta
- Garlic-Herb Shrimp and Chicken
- Cajun Chicken Linguini Alfredo
- Wood-Grilled Fresh Tilapia
- Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp
- Hand-Breaded Shrimp
- Triple-Chocolate Brownie á la Mode
- Apple Crostada with Caramel Drizzle
When we arrived, there was already a line forming. We had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. For others, they would have to wait over 1 hr to be seated. It’s always good to make reservations to avoid these long waits on weekends.
The whole interior looked like a boat!
They even give your these taser-like devices that signal you when your table is called.
The dining area was very wooden as well. I guess that works with the theme of the restaurant.
New England Clam Chowder was alright. It had minimal clams and wasn’t very amazing.
Cheddar Biscuits are unlimited!! It was very fluffy on the inside and you can tell there was lots of butter to make these. Despite that, it was hands down very good biscuits!
Fresh Caesar Salad was alright as well.
Fresh Garden Salad had the addition of tomatoes, cucumbers and onions. I had a balsamic vinegar dressing on top.
Garlic Alfredo Shrimp-and-Scallop Pasta is probably the best entree out of the seven choices. TaiwaneseGirl and CanuckGirl did enjoy it, but it wasn’t the most amazing pasta they have had. It had a good amount of sauce, scallops and shrimp.
Parrot Isle Jumbo Coconut Shrimp is just gross! Stay away from this at all times. I really don’t know how this is even considered an entree. It was overly sweet and it really ruined the taste of the shrimp. How is this even somewhat healthy?
Apple Crostada with Caramel Drizzle was alright as well said CanuckGirl. It really could have used a side of vanilla ice cream.
Triple-Chocolate Brownie á la Mode was good! The brownie was warm and super moist with the side of vanilla ice cream. It’s not too sweet and it was a good end to the meal.
The dishes were ok, but nothing amazing. I am glad I didn’t have to pay more than $15 for this meal because most of it kinda sucked. We probably should have gotten lobsters, but the special was just at such a good price.
Words of Wisdom:
- Very busy on weekends
- Lots of rear parking
- Make reservations
- Avoid anything with coconuts and shrimp
