Got Red Lobster gift card...now what?

My In-laws got us RL gift cards for Christmas and I need to know if there is anything good there besides the cheddar biscuits. Are the grilled items any good or should we re-gift or try to trade it?

  1. It probably depends on the one you go to and who is behind the grill, but I'd probably steer away from the fish - tends to be overcooked - go for the crab legs or shrimp

    1. I wouldn't regift it. Look at is as a dining adventure. It won't kill you. :)

        Probably. It probably won't kill you.

      2. Every time someone talks me into giving it another try I end up regretting it. Regift, regift.....

        1. My brother enjoyed the lobster pizza appetizer that they have.

          I would try going to Red Lobster. When in doubt, steamed seafood can't be THAT bad. It's free!

          1. Stick with the shrimp - either the coconut, the fried or the scampi. That with the cheddar biscuits and the Caesar salad and you won't be too sorry you went.
