They serve shark steak. Don't support this! Why eat an endangered species? If you enjoy nature don't support this restaurant

I have been to The Red Lobster twice (January 2012 & March 2018). Both of those times it didn't shatter my anticipation to taste a good bite. Rice is in the excellent form you can order from a variety of dishes full of tasty bits.
