It's officially Lent season and time for me to share my favorite Friday food spots! 

1) Gulf Coast Connection Seafood

Gulf Coast Connection is a great choice if you're looking for fresh seafood. My favorite part is you can order from their delicious menu or buy whatever you want to cook for yourself. However you decide, make sure you stop and try their fresh shrimp, crab legs, or whatever your heart desires!

2) The Fish House and Grill

Another great spot for seafood! They also serve a fantastic catfish dinner that is one of the best I've ever had. If you're looking for a local place to eat on Fridays, be sure to add The Fish House and Grill to your list.

3) Red Lobster

If you are wanting more of a chain restaurant, look no further! Red Lobster is a great place to dine with a menu that caters to every fish lover. Not to mention, have you tried their delicious biscuits?!

4) Heartland Sports Pub

Golf and food? Say no more, I'm there! Heartland Sports Pub, located on Heartland Golf Club, is having its fish and shrimp fry every Friday until Easter. Grab your clubs and bring your appetite!

As you can see these are all great places to eat during Lent! However, several Elizabethtown restaurants have meatless options if you don't enjoy fish. You can find a full list of Elizabethtown dining spots, here. Bon Appètit!
