So this is where all the tainted chinese seafood goes!

Don't eat the cheddar biscuits, they'll fill you up before the shrimp starts arriving.

5. If able to eat more, return to 3. Else, leave establishment and prepare for sickness.

Many years ago, There was a casino in Atlantic City offering all you can eat lobsters for that price. I ate so much that I no longer crave for lobsters till today.

Yeap! That's pretty much it! My old college used to have a competition to see who can eat the most shrimps (by # of plates) in the shortest amount of time! Man, they were so stuffed they could barely walk (so #5 is definitely correct!). Ahh, the good old days!

btw, #6, pay the waiter/waitress with a generous tip!

Not saying it's not a good deal, just know what you are eating. Also, not saying that eating shrimp is bad, just that farm raised shrimp is probably not so healthy. Just try to ask them where their shrimp comes from. Here's an article (Record-Breaking Numbers Reveal Consumers’ Insatiable Appetite for Popular Seafood) from 2 years ago, but I bet things are not all that different now.

"Shrimp aquaculture uses a factory-farming model that douses shrimp with pesticides, antibiotics and other chemicals; most shrimp farms are in Southeast Asia, where labor and environmental standards are considerably weaker than in the United States."

and

"“Our love of shrimp is partially driven by constant advertising from restaurants and companies that bait consumers with low prices,” said Andrianna Natsoulas, field director at Public Citizen’s food program. “But it’s not fair to consumers to tell them ‘eat more and more and more’ without giving them the whole story behind the shrimp that winds up on their plates.”"

I guess ignorance is bliss, bon appetit!

Green for OP...Now Im Hungry...Lets Eat

fyi -- anyone new to this...tried this once, will never do it again.

i rather go to a all you can eat sushi buffet for 18.99 rather than this slop they serve you..

shrimps are loaded with butter/salt, and they are extremely tiny for what they are. For near $20 (tax, tip incl) i'd expect a decent meal anywhere you go....

In addition to the Shrimp Linguini Alfredo, you can also ask for a Shrimp Marinara pasta. I don't particularly like alfredo sauce and the server provided this other option.

Thanks OP!

I really wish they would offer peel and eat shrimp as one of the choices.

i don't think its possible in nyc. can anyone confirm?

I really can't say that this is a good deal, thus I'm giving THE DEAL red.
I hate to see smart people over pay for a so-so meal. Being Packed in & servered just doesn't make for a good eating experience.
I suppose that may be a good price in some markets, considering they bring it to you. One can easily go too most any supermarkets and get 1-2 pounds for less than $15.
Yes, even Wally mart has a 2 pound bag of cooked shrimp for ~$8.00.
Heck, even the best Chinese buffets come with various kind of shrimp for far less.
Come on people, this deal isn't for Fat Wallet!

If your like me and my crew, we can easily down 4 lbs each.

The RL's near me are nice and the food is pretty good.

$18 bucks for some crappy farm raised shrimp. Where's the deal?

Dangers Of Imported Shrimp

FYI, for those lobster lovers, Boomtown Casino in Reno, Nevada (if you live close by) is a good place for all you can eat whole Main lobster for only $24.99 or $19.99 per person if you have the Casino guest card. (It's free.) My record was 7 lobsters. I can only get from 4 to 5 max. Here is the link
Boomtown

Might as well go to costco for 11 or 12, you can get a nice 2lb bag of peeled, cleaned shrimp, medium sized is about 40-50, and is probably twice the size of the ones at red lobster, and probably higher in quality.

You can usually order two portions to start, like scampi and popcorn, then when the waitress brings your first order you can tell him/her you'd like to send the next order in now. That way there's very little wait between orders. You can keep up this rotation as long as you dare...

been there, done that.
While it is technically lobster, its not "good" lobster.
For the price, its worth it if you like lobster and want to eat a lot of it. But if you enjoy "good" lobster, don't expect to get it at boomtown.

taf said: JohnsMom said: I really wish they would offer peel and eat shrimp as one of the choices.If you can boil water, you can make them at home

That is what I had for dinner. The best dipping sauce is Chesapeak Old Bay seasoning mixed with vinager. If you like salt and vinegar potato chips, this is the same thing with a kick! Just get a small sause bowl/cup, fill half way with vinegar, then add 1-3 teaspoons of old bay. Its the bomb!!

linkypoo (may look different for different zip codes along the lines of what OP said about pricing)

Even though many people are giving red to people bad talking Red Lobster. Well I support you, Red Lobster is not a good sea food resturant, they are bad at best. Last time I got the all you can eat shrimp, my dad broke out in hives. Now he has had shrimp before, he is 55 years old and never had this happen until eating at Red Lobster. So bring on the red for Red Lobster. Now that I will be receive a tons of red, you who vote red do NOT know what fresh and good sea food taste like. Try some new resturants, mom and pop ones, they will often have the best service with the best food.

You left out the most important first step:
1A. Don't eat for three days.

I can eat over 100 of these suckers! they take forever to serve you though.

What does it taste like? Is it just boiled lobster or is it an actual dish?

Please people, these kind of shrimp raise your cholesterol to unbelievable levels even in the short term. You will end up with either heart disease or diabetes. Stop all of this food madness and excercise and eat only organic foods and lots of vegetables.

Red Lobster is the WalMart of seafood eateries.

And organic food is for suckers. If you want to waste money for the same food, go ahead, if it makes you feel better. Just know that you're paying for hype, not better quality food.

You are not my mother, and you are not my spiritual leader:
Don't tell me what to do,
Don't preach at me

It is food...ALL food is bad for you, if you eat too much of it. Going nuts every once in a while is not too bad...

Lastly, shrimp / cholesterol and diabetes are NOT linked in any way... the cause for diabetes is STILL UNKNOWN!

No coconut shrimp this time?

My wife likes the salads and the biscuits. She enjoys getting that while I stuff my face with shrimp. I never eat the shrimp pasta while I'm there (since the pasta fills you up)... but I order it to go as my last dish.

The servers have always been really nice & attentive with me during this deal. As another poster mentioned, please remember this when leaving your tip. If they've been good to you, give them that extra dollar or two.

Maybe the exact mechanism for diabetes is unknown, but four liters of (non-diet) soda a day will definitely give you diabetes, for an example. Eventually. How many of you actually drink that much, out there?

I'd still go and visit RL for endless shrimp at least once Then I'll leave my car in the parking lot and run home to lower my cholesterol levels.

I had this once, and hated it. The problem is that many people order this at the same time, and it overwhelms Red Lobster's kitchen. You actually spend more time waiting for your food to arrive than normal.

It's not an "all you can eat" feast as you might think (unless you're the only people in the restaurant) There are huge time gaps in each new serving of shrimp, leaving you hungry and impatient waiting for your waiter/waitress to bring another round of food. The problem with shrimp is that they're so small, it's easy to eat it out fast.

As someone else pointed out, shrimp has tons of cholesterol. I worked in a medical center for 2 years, and have seen a lot of people with high cholesterol......and one thing they had in common was eating food with cholesterol in it, such as shrimp.

When are they going to bring back the AYCE snow crab legs? They haven't done it in years unless I just happen to miss it...

come on out to las vegas plenty of all you can eat snow crab the Wynn has king crab and they are pre cracked/split

Eat a couple bowls of colon blow bran cereal for breakfast for a week or two afterward, and it'll all balance itself out....

This sucker sure feels smarter after seeing that ignorant post.

Heh. My brother and I went there a few weeks ago, at about 10 p.m., an hour before closing. We got the main plate, then one refill each. I got the pasta for my refill, and the portion was as big as a full-size entree. I ate about half.

Then the waitress brought out five plates of scampi for us. (I guess they wanted to make sure we were out by 11.)

Between us, we knocked off a plate of scampi, but we still had 4 left. So I asked the waitress to wrap them.

She says, "We're not supposed to do that."

I said, "Well, we weren't expecting this. And it's just going to go in the garbage anyway."

So she gave us the containers. (And despite the reluctance to give us the containers, she was really cool otherwise.) I packed up everything: the shrimp pasta, the scampi shrimp, and the remaining cheddar biscuits.

My brother was shrimped out, so I took the stuff.

I mixed the shrimp scampi with some pasta and some homemade sun-dried tomato pesto. It was dinner for two nights. And it was great!

The shrimp pasta was lunch one day. A lot better than Cup O Noodles!

So, go late, and you may luck out and get lots of extras to take home!

BTW, I thought it was quite good this year. Better than in the past overall. Although the coconut shrimp is better than the buffalo!

Yeah I'm sure red lobster, a darden restaurant, would risk there reputation that way. I work at an olive garden and we are extremely strict about anything like that. We throw out so much soup at the end of the night that it is sick. I would never personally worry about eating at a darden restaurant they have very high standards.

And the commenters saying they would mention to the server that you will give them extra tip that is insulting for one as it makes it seem like we would go slow otherwise. Two its demeaning. Three people that say they will leave a good tip or anything like that are generally cheap and you know it means 5-10% tip (pathetic percentage) Four we of course try to get the food out to you as soon as possible, it keeps you happy(more tip generally) plus it gets you out of there faster and gets another table in which means more tips, we are held back by the kitchen generally, or sometimes they seat to many of your tables back to back and you have to run around like crazy.
