LongHorn Steakhouse's Flavorful Under 500 menu includes entrees that each come with a side of vegetables and salad all for under 500 calories.  This year, the menu includes the new Spinach Feta Chicken as well as some favorites, like Flo’s Filet® and the LongHorn Salmon. With options featuring steak, salmon and shrimp all grilled to perfection, you can still enjoy big flavors without a lot of calories.

When dining at Olive Garden, be sure to look at the Lighter Italian Fare menu that features entrees under 575 calories. The menu includes a variety of flavorful pasta, chicken and seafood dishes, including Lasagna Primavera with Grilled Chicken, Baked Tilapia with Shrimp and Garlic Rosemary Chicken. Don't forget that you can order Olive Garden’s signature salad with light dressing on the side, and Olive Garden also offers gluten-free and whole wheat pastas.

At Red Lobster, the fresh fish menu features four to six types of fresh fish daily, which you can order simply grilled on their signature wood-fire grills. Throughout the menu, Lighter Fare options that are fewer than 600 calories are highlighted to help guide you. The LightHouse menu also features items that have fewer than 500 calories, 15 grams of fat and 750 milligrams of sodium. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in salmon, trout, tuna and other seafood, provide health benefits, such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease to boosting brain development.

Complete nutritional information is available on all our restaurants' websites as well as by request in our restaurants to further help you navigate your options.

By calling out the variety of our menu options, we hope to help make your dining choices easier. We look forward to serving you in our restaurants soon and we wish you and your family a healthy and happy 2014!
