A colorful seafood restaurant for kids of all ages--especially the younger ones. – In Short
Admittedly kitschy, unavoidably noisy, this Red Lobster for rug rats is like an oversized seaside shanty awash in oceanic memorabilia--fishing nets, souvenir trinkets, plastic flotsam and jetsam. Staffed with a lively crew of G-rated table-dancing servers, the family-friendly chain anchors its menu in all things crab: Crab balls, crab cakes, crab dip, crab gumbo. Finicky children opt for corndogs or hamburgers; shellfish-phobic adults dine on rib eye steak or mesquite-grilled chicken.
Alcohol Everywhere – I was surprised that this is considere a kid friendly restaurant, since the entire decor is based around empty alcohol containers. Condiments are held in an empty six pack, skeletons rest in a row boat littered with beer cans, neon beer signs are everywhere. It felt like I was taking my wife and daughter to a bar. The food was decent, although not spectacular.
