Introduction

Do you have a restaurant you dream about going to? If there was one place where I would love to eat everyday, it would have to be Red Lobster. The live lobsters and fish decorations really entice you to enter the dining room. Not only is the food at Red Lobster delicious, but the service is exceptional. If you want to hear more about my favorite restaurant, read on.

Upon entering Red Lobster, you will notice a large rectangular fish tank in which live lobsters take their last swim. Fish and ocean-themed items decorate the walls. Even the waiters and waitresses don ocean-like shirts.

3rd paragraph -2nd description

Their main food is lobster. Do you have a favorite plate when you go? When the crab is served, it is so fresh, it crawls onto your plate. There is warm, juicy butter dripping from the crab. Not only is the crab delicious, but wait till you hear about the shrimp. The taste of the shrimp is explosive. The popcorn shrimp pops in your mouth.

4th paragraph-last description

The service at Red Lobster is very friendly. Every time your drinks and cheesy biscuits get low, they bring you more. Also, they have quick service. While you wait for your food, small children are entertained by complimentary coloring sheets and crayons, while older kids are furnished with portable CD players. They give big kids big glasses instead of baby glasses. They don’t mind if you take your drinks and food home with you.
