Have y'all heard of this new place Red Lobster?

The problem with dining in Louisiana is that I can never find seafood restaurants. All the seafood places I do hear about are all these pretentious, white tablecloth places. Who needs that? I just want fresh, straight-from-the-boat — or freezer, whatever — seafood that's affordable and in a casual atmosphere where my kids are welcome. Simply put, I want to eat at a casual seafood restaurant that's both wallet-friendly and family-friendly. And close proximity to a shopping mall is a plus.

If you're looking for the same things in a restaurant, you're gonna love this place I recently tried. Not only do they have fresh, sizzlin' seafood, it's a great place for kids and you can wear pretty much whatever you want. They're really enthusiastic about birthdays, and they have these amazing biscuits, which I believe are from the Cheddar Bay region of New England? I don't know — I couldn't quite catch what Mike, our waiter, told us about them. But what I do know is I'm not the only one who likes them!

Anyway, don't take my word for it. Not only are national magazines raving about this place, but a Louisiana publication gave it a pretty good review, too (they're with me about the biscuits).

I don't know about you, but I trust them — especially since they were the ones who let us know about our other favorite restaurant. I guess I also could try that seafood restaurant they mention at the end, but I don't see how it could be better than this place.
