We came in for lunch and had a good experience. The lobster and shrimp was cooked just right. Keep those cheddar biscuits coming. The food was good and the service was excellent.

I must agree that the service was a little slow for lunch and they were not busy the day and time I was there.... but the food and cleanliness is exactly what I expect when I have to get my fix of Red Lobster. Must be the TV ads that make me go there, because one would think while in... More

Family dinner for 8 and all left happy and full. The fish dinner was great as was the different shrimp dishes. The hot rolls were outstanding as was the clam chowder, coleslaw and salads. Service was fast and efficient. Would recommend to everyone.

The family was in town for the holidays and we decided to go to Red Lobster, they did not disappoint. The food was good, but the service was excellent. I forgot the name of our server, but she was fantastic!!!. We had a huge party and she was so cordial and polite, she made my day.

My Mother and I stopped here to have a fish dinner. My Mother's salmon was over cooked. So the waitress got this manager ( red haired dude) to see what could be done. He had another salmon grilled for her. This time it was raw. Bet the cook left it on the grill for 2 seconds on each side. When... More

Judy and I dined there last night, and found everything to our liking, and then some! Joseph P.'s service was friendly, timely and correct, and the food -- from start to finish -- could not have been better. Judy's trout was generous, well-presented and (she says) delicious. No, she didn't offer to share it. We did share an appetizer of... More

We only came in contact with 2 employees last night at dinner. One was the hostess, Alyssa. I have never met a more rude, sour or obviously unhappy hostess at a Red lobster. The only time she smiled while we were there was to flirt with the male waitstaff, which she was so busy doing that she forgot our silverware!... More

What a great restaurant. Had the 4 entry dinner for $16.99....and I think the total calories were like 650. Huge servings...and yummy. The garlic grilled shrimp were excellent...and 2 huge skewers...I couldn't finish. The broccoli was good! And the green bean were tasty and crisp....and they let me switch out the dessert for some coleslaw with dinner...over and above the... More

Ok, I'm going to come clean: my normal go - to when I travel when I want some pasta is to go with Olive Garden but ever since they stopped carrying their white sauce seafood linguini, I've not been to OG since. I wanted some linguini tonight and I had a really good experience at the Red Lobster outside of... More
