Red Lobster is launching its biggest menu revamp in a decade on Oct. 15. The chain plans to expand the number of non-seafood items and boost the number of lighter options it offers to broaden its appeal. Here's a look at excerpts from the Florida-based chain's first menu in 1968. The reference to the restaurant in 1945 in the menu introduction is for another establishment owned by the founder. Items you won't find on the chain's menu today: frog legs and oysters on the half shell. Then again, diners back then didn't have Spicy Buffalo Chicken Bites or Shrimp Nachos. ------ "The Red Lobster is a Harbor for Seafood Lovers. We Specialize in Fresh Florida Seafood, but some of our Seafoods come from distant points of the compass, such as Maine, Maryland, Alaska, Peru, Chile and even South Africa to name but a few. Each dish is prepared from knowledge gained and recipes developed dating back as far as 1945 when our first Seafood Restaurant was established in Florida."...Whole Florida Lobster, Drawn butter, stuffed with our special dressing.
