I haven’t eaten at the Red Lobster in North Miami in over a decade.  

I drive by it several times a week.  I patronize several places in this mall.  The ample parking lot is free and there are nice assortments of very affordable eateries there that are pretty good. However when we think about going out for dinner, Blue Collar, Moshi Moshi, or a number of NE Miami  eateries are on our list but never Red Lobster. 

I joined two Miami Shores neighbors there this past week and I was delighted to return for a really nice peaceful lunch.  Peaceful because we could actually hear each other’s conversations. The wait staff is polite and the service is efficient. 

We all ordered seafood.  My lobster bisque was creamy and my salad was crispy.  Our various fishy dishes were delightful.The place had a few lunchtime clients however I’m pretty sure dinner time is packed with families.  It occurred to me that sometimes we overlook the obvious. Here’s a restaurant that has been around for ages and yet we never think of going there for a meal.  Well that’s going to change.  

This Red Lobster is located at 13300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami 33181. Worth the drive there.
