Red Lobster-Honolulu

Red Lobster was a good choice. We decided on Red Lobster because we had a gift card. Along for the feast was Carissa's parents, brother and myself. We arrived for dinner and put out name in. They told us it would be around 20 minutes or so, which I didn't believe since there were a good 20+ people waiting outside. They do not take reservations or call-aheads, which is a bummer. After about 45 minutes we were asked if we wanted to squeeze into a booth, or wait for a table to open up. Now if I were about 100lbs lighter, I think the booth would have been "ok," but um yah, we waited this long, I think we can wait 5 more minutes for a table.
Our waiter was very friendly, and took our drink orders, brought us the drinks, then came back to get our food orders. After that, we got some hot biscuits from the oven. Very moist, cheesy and garlic-y. I ordered the choose 3- which I chose, fried shrimp, coconut shrimp, and wood grilled salmon ($22.99) Dinner came with a salad, and a side, I chose the baked potato (pictured above). Carissa decided on the "Ultimate Feast" which had a lobster tail, snow crab legs, Walt's fried shrimp, and shrimp scampi. She chose the mashed as her side. ($28.99). The food was really good. The crab was Carissa's favorite, and I really enjoyed the coconut shrimp. I would have to choose the fried shrimp at Bubba Gumps over RL, while the coconut shrimp here was better than Bubbas. Although the portions do not look very big, we all were very full walking out, and no one wanted dessert.
If you are going to dine here, please be prepared to wait, or come early to be seated right away.
