Man holding a bowl of shrimp

We sent Stetson to Red Lobster on an empty stomach to try all the varieties of shrimp and to share his thoughts on the overall value of this promotion. Stetson says,

I rarely eat at Red Lobster. I’ve probably only been here about three times in my life, so these are all new items to me! Although I’m not a huge fan of seafood, I don’t think you can go wrong by eating endless shrimp and Cheddar Bay biscuits for just $15.99.

Bowl of Shrimp Linguini Alfredo at Red LobsterChoose from these Endless Shrimp Dishes:

Shrimp Linguini Alfredo

This pasta dish features tender shrimp in Red Lobster’s famous creamy garlic Parmesan sauce, served over linguini. Stetson says,

Although the texture is weird, the shrimp itself actually tastes really good. However, the texture weirded me out and it definitely threw me off. I prefer the breaded shrimp.

Plate with Garlic Shrimp Scampi at Red Lobster

Garlic Shrimp Scampi

This hand-crafted garlic shrimp scampi is oven-broiled in a garlic butter sauce. Stetson says,

Usually, I don’t care for the non-breaded shrimp. Something about the texture throws me off. But with that being said, the Garlic Shrimp Scampi tasted really good – it’s a great combination of buttery and garlicky!

Skewers of Red Lobster's Teriyaki Grilled Shrimp on plate with rice

Teriyaki-Grilled Shrimp

This grilled shrimp is drizzled with teriyaki sauce, topped with green onions, and served on a skewer. Stetson says,

These come on a stick – I love the presentation! The Teriyaki sauce is really good. These weren’t bad for non-breaded shrimp, but I think I would prefer this Teriyaki sauce on chicken.

Plate of Hand-Breaded Shrimp at Red Lobster

Hand-Breaded Shrimp

Red Lobster’s hand-breaded shrimp is fried to a golden brown and served with their signature cocktail sauce. Stetson says,

Now we’re talking. I like the crunch of the breading on this shrimp with the cocktail sauce. It’s pretty good, either with or without the cocktail sauce!

Plate of Honey Sriracha breaded shrimp at Red Lobster

Crispy Sriracha Honey Shrimp

Red Lobster’s Crispy Sriracha Honey Shrimp is coated in crispy corn flakes and panko, fried and drizzled with sriracha honey. Stetson says,

I like spicy food and this has a good kick to it. It’s hot! I’m not dying, but I am sweating. This is my favorite so far. I honestly think they taste really good.

Garlic Grilled Shrimp

Red Lobster’s Garlic Grilled Shrimp is a skewer full of shrimp brushed with a buttery glaze and “grilled to perfection.” Stetson says,

Nope. Not a fan. Honestly, I can’t even taste the garlic on this one. It’s just very bland and meh… probably my least favorite.

Plate of Coconut Bites at Red Lobster

Coconut Bites

These coconut bites are hand-dipped shrimp tossed in flaky coconut, fried and served with Red Lobster’s signature piña colada sauce. Stetson says,

I’m a big coconut fan, and I love the flavor of coconut on these shrimp. It’s not overpowering, just really good. The piña colada dipping sauce is SO good. Once I tried that it was over. That sauce makes this shrimp my hands-down favorite.

Red Lobster Endless Shrimp meal

Stetson’s overall impression of Red Lobster’s Endless Shrimp Event:

This is a lot of food. I like how this meal has so many fun selections. If you like shrimp at all, there’s going to be something here you’ll want to eat a lot of. For $15.99, you get endless shrimp and cheddar biscuits, so I don’t think you can go wrong if you come with an empty stomach. Even for someone like me, who only really liked 2 types of shrimp and the biscuits, it’s still probably worth it. It’s a pretty great deal!

Stetson’s location will be participating in the Endless Shrimp Event through November 17th. Check with your local Red Lobster to verify their participation dates.

    If you want coconut bites you better run, they are not listed on the menu & each store got a limited number of boxes. Keep in mind nothing is precooked be patient for your refills.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh interesting. Thanks for the helpful warning, Jen!

    • Michele

      Coconut bites is what I’m craving!

  2. AL

    We were just there last night for dinner. I love shrimp so I was so excited 😆. Honestly I liked all the ones I tried (everything except the hand breaded ones and the coconut ones). I loved the garlic shrimp scampi. Those were my favorite.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for your review, AL! I haven’t been in yet to try them!

  3. Christina

    My daughter is a hostess at red lobster, so we go often! My new fave is the honey sriracha, it is so delicious

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! That one does sound good, Christina! Thanks for letting us know which is your favorite!

  4. Vironika

    I’m curious.. is this something you can take the kids to and pay an extra plate fee (for sharing)?? My kids would love this but they are not old enough to get them each their own, $15 worth! Lol.. does that make sense lol

    • Savings Lady

      They have a children’s menu. It’s not endless but regular kids menu. Depending on the age of your kids they may be able to share a kids meal. Mine shared until about age 5/6.

  5. sne3103

    How does this work for kids? Is there a lower rate for them? My twins are 4, so paying $15.99 per kid seems a lot 🙁

    • Savings Lady

      They have a children’s menu. It’s not endless but regular kids menu. Your kids could probably share a kids meal. My twins shared kids meals up through about age 5/6.

      • sne3103

        Oh yeah, we could do that, thanks!

    I’m scratching my head a little bit why you’d have someone do a review who self-admitted that he’s not a huge fan of seafood and doesn’t like the texture of non-breaded shrimp. Seems like it wasn’t going to ever be an objective review. I appreciate the intent of this, I would just think that if you want to put together a review for people who do enjoy shrimp, that it should be with someone who enjoys different kinds of shrimp – not just breaded on rare occasions.

    • Daniela

      I agree here, I actually do not likw breaded shrimp. I like my shrimp to taste like shrimp with shrimp texture, so I would have wanted a review from an all over shrimp lover. Not “it was good for non breaded shrimp”. But glad to know the options I can choose from at least.

      • J


    • Jessica

      I completely agree. An odd read.

    • Amy

      I think it’s because the majority of them are on a super strict keto diet, and can’t eat half the things. That said, the article didn’t need to be written.

    • MommySpendsLess

      I agree! My daughter and I aren’t normally seafood fans but on a recent vacation we each sampled a grilled shrimp that my mom had ordered and surprisingly we both really liked them. I was hoping this review would tell me whether Red Lobster is a good choice for shrimp in general (compared to a higher end and/or non-chain restaurant). It was good to learn about the deal though.

      • Daniela

        My fave is Joe’s Crab Shack, not sure if you have one near you. Their basket of boiled shrimp is a great deal and if you sign up for their emails, they send you a free app coupon, which includes the boiled shrimp.

        • MommySpendsLess

          Thanks for the tips! 🙂

    • Jen


    • ritalyons

      Right, it’s not a helpful review when most of the criticisms were “it wasn’t breaded.” The idea was good, but if they didn’t have anyone who cared for shrimp available to review it, maybe they could have passed on this one.

      On the other hand, I supposed it’s good for people who aren’t generally shrimp / umbreaded shrimp fans to read this, and good to see they found it to be a good value.

    • pokz

      I dont think its a review of the shrimps..its a review of if its worth it for the price of endless shrimp

    • patricialavenz-goff

      I think he did a good review even if he didn’t like non breaded shrimp. He said he did like the butter garlic shrimp.

  7. tipaye

    Honestly, I feel it’s cool of H2S to offer pictures of all the options and break everything down. As far as Stetson’s personal opinion, it’s just that… feel free to disregard. This is not a fine-dining review site. Everybody has different tastes, and wouldn’t be happy if the review wasn’t catered to their needs/tastes, anyway. If you’re on H2S to judge the quality of cheap, mass-produced shrimp at a chain restaurant (they’re all the same) from a post, you’re in the wrong place! So much whining, it gets old. Thanks, H2S, for posting pictures and letting me know options. I appreciate you!

    • MommySpendsLess

      I didn’t see whining in anyone’s comments, just constructive feedback. H2S has become a business and their customers were just leaving reviews of the content provided. Nearly every post expressed gratitude for learning about the offer and dish options.
      I agree that this is (was?) a money saving site and typically wouldn’t be my first source for restaurant reviews but an article that they chose to title “…and Stetson reviews every dish” indicated to me that there would be useful reviews of Red Lobster’s shrimp dishes. If they had said “Endless Shrimp is back at Red Lobster and we’ve described every available dish” the comments would probably be different.

    • jessawyer

      Hmm. I didn’t see anyone whining, just some commenting, observations, and sharing perspectives. Perhaps you were reading some comments that I’m not seeing.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Thanks for the kind comment! We sure appreciate YOU!

  8. Chris

    Shrimp is keto folks

    • R2

      Eating simply prepared shrimp is keto. Eating it with carbs (covered in breading, served over noodles, or in sweet sauce, etc.) is not.

  9. Casey

    My sister and I went there last week for endless shrimp and it was awesome. We got a preview the day before it started since I was a rewards member. We didn’t see anyone getting it so I assume no one else knew about it which might be why everything was served very hot and well cooked. We got eight different kinds that we shared so we could try a bunch of different things out. Our favorite was the honey sriracha and the coconut. The teriyaki and the grilled skewers were also very tasty. The scampi was the normal scampi, but the shrimp were huge and well cooked. We didn’t try the pasta as we have had it before and didn’t want to fill up too fact. All said, we definitely plan to go back in a few weeks when we can face looking at shrimp again:)

    • jen s.

      Now those are real reviews! Thanks 🙂 If I only had a red lobster near me….

  10. Katharine

    I absolutely LOVE that y’all do these reviews! Kinda weird but I get so excited to read them in detail 😂🤗💕

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Glad to hear you have enjoyed them, Katherine! Thanks a bunch for the sweet comment. 😊💕

  11. Whit

    Stetson is just living his best life with all these restaurant items he’s trying out 😂

  12. patricialavenz-goff

    I don’t like breaded shrimp or breaded anything really so I wouldn’t be good at reviewing either.

  13. Jen

    Couple of things:
    1). Be careful their scampi is not keto the box that states the ingredients makes this clear there’s something in the butter.i was shocked.
    2). If you share with kids etc.,you could be charged for another endless. (Mgr. discretion). Kids meals as low as appx $5
    3). Your not suppose to take any leftovers with you but as long as your not obnoxious most will just bring you a box.
    4). You can order this 2 go., The computer allows for your initial 2 selections & 2 refills. A great deal for $15.99. & yes u can still use a coupon,
    5). If eating there it’s best to order grilled & scampi first, they take the longest to prepare. You will receive a larger portion of everything initially smaller on refills. (Pasta the same)
    6). Lots of RLs now have happy hour till six $5 appetizers cheap wine,beer & well drinks.
    7), tip your servers well consider all their running & making sure you get all those refills.

    Endless shrimp is a great value, it’s also offered year round currently on Mondays for $15 till 6pm with limited selections.., the current endless is only $15 till 6 on Mondays in most markets

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for taking the time to share your tips with us, Jen! We sure appreciate it!

    • tipaye

      Wow, thank you! 🙂

  14. Joni

    To each their own. I hate breaded shrimp except for the coconut which was not even an option at our restaurant. Our constant fave is always the scampi, can never go wrong with that one.

  15. Shelly

    My husband and I went for our Anniverssry. They ask what two shrimps you would like. I chose scampi and teriyaki. A while after bringing them out, they ask what we would like next. After the first round, they will only bring you one choice at a time. We had to wait 25 minutes for the second round. They brought out a small dish with seven shrimps that were about one inch in diameter. Twenty minutes after that, they brought out another seven small shrimps. Are they kidding? Endless shrimp but you have to wait 25 minutes for seven little shrimps?? We were there on a Tuesday night. The restaurant had a handful of customers. Can you imagine if it had been a weekend? Endless shrimp is not worth it unless you want to be there for hours.
