We Reviewed Red Lobster's Ultimate Endless Shrimp Experience
What Is It?
Red Lobster's Ultimate Endless Shrimp deal costs a flat fee of $25 per person (as of April 9, 2024) and lets you eat as much shrimp as your heart desires.
The special offers seven different shrimp dishes (four of which are breaded) and one side. Customers can order up to three dishes at once and can do so for as long as they're able.
Grilled Shrimp
Red Lobster’s grilled shrimp skewers come with six grilled shrimp atop a bed of orzo and served with a slice of lemon, making for a very straightforward dish.
The shrimp themselves are slightly rubbery and a bit dry, but lemon juice helps save them. They provide a light, almost refreshing start to the meal.
Coconut Shrimp
Red Lobster's Parrot Isle jumbo coconut shrimp are butterflied and breaded well, with coconut flakes poking out that add a saccharine crust.
The sweetness of these coconut shrimp could probably cause a cavity. Further accentuating it is an even more cloying white coconut sauce, which vaguely tastes like cake frosting.
Shrimp Linguini
A slathering of shrimp laid atop pasta and covered in white sauce, this dish was straightforward but also far more indulgent than the other two.
The sauce itself was milky and sat atop the pasta rather than coating it. Its creaminess overwhelmed the shrimp, which seemed to be simply boiled.
Shrimp Scampi
The garlic shrimp scampi does not come with pasta, instead coming in a separated butter sauce. The small, grilled shrimp were buried under all the butter.
