Shake hands with twin lobster tails, which arrive after a quick shower in seasoned bread crumbs and butter ($25.99), or munch on the mixed grill’s trifecta of marinated chicken, skirt steak, and grilled shrimp ($25.99). Sprouts ages 10 and younger can select from their own list of kid-friendly fare ($3.99–$5.99) and are allowed to eat for free Sunday–Thursday thanks to a contract negotiated by a hard-bargaining toddler.
