In appreciation for her love, Red Lobster has since renamed one of its drink concoctions as the Bey Breeze.
The restaurant offers even more catchy thrills with its Live Lobster station, where guests get to pick their choice.
Other dishes that will excite the appetite are the Seaside Nachos, Signature Shrimp & Cocktail, and Bleu Cheese Salad for starters, and Shrimp & Kani Pizza that can be shared with friends.
