These biscuits are very similar to Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I found the recipe online at one of those restaurant knock-off websites (can't remember which one.) Super easy.

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

2 cups Bisquick
⅔ cups milk
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
garlic cloves, smashed

Preheat oven to 400°. Combine Bisquick, milk, and cheese. Drop onto baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until middles are set. Meanwhile, put smashed garlic cloves and butter in saucepan and melt over low heat. Brush melted garlic butter over top of warm biscuits when they come out the oven.

Makes about 10 biscuits, depending on how big you make them.

The original recipe said to bake at 450° for 10 minutes, but they kept getting too dark on top and not done in the middle, so I tried them at 400° for 15 minutes and it's a lot better. I also found it works better to get the thicker shreds of cheddar instead of the finely shredded kind. That way you get more visible ribbons of cheese running through the biscuits. Don't skimp on how many garlic cloves you put in the butter. That's the only way of imparting garlic flavor since there isn't any inside the biscuits themselves. Also, I wouldn't use skim for the milk. Since they are biscuits, they have a tendency to be a tad dry, so I think the more fat you have in the milk, the less dry they will be. I make mine with 2% and that works.

I made these for an Advent dinner last week and they went over pretty well.
