Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I told my wife that I had a hankering for lobster. So, I got on the internet to see where my money would best be served.....deep fried lobster, no thanks. $65.00 per person all you can eat....not so much. So, when it was all channeled...down. It was: "We haven't been to Red Lobster for awhile....let's give it a go". But, which one to choose. I said, " Let's go down by International Drive those restaurants are busy and should be good. There are two on International Drive, we went to the one closest to Kirkman. It was a Sunday afternoon at 4:30pm. Well, we got there and stood at the podium for 15 minutes. "Hey, anyone here", I said the passing busser and then the barman. A waiter came by and said, "Let me find you someone". And then another waiter came by and said, "It will be fifteen minutes". There were three table in the bar and the dining room was EMPTY. "empty". So, no! We drove to the other end of I-Drive and found a much better run Red Lobster who had a hostess and waiters and some food. So, was the lobster all I thought it should be ......not really. Lobster has become so expensive the portions are small unless you have a small business loan to back you up. Most of the sides were good and our server was really quite good. Talk about International Drive. The table next to us was a very handsome couple from Lithuania who spoke impeccable English and were touring the US. They thought the Shrimp and the bread was the best. They were having a good time. So.....the Red Lobster by the Convention Center = good The Red Lobster by Kirkman= not so good! MWMore

Wow we was staying on international drive and went here 3 nights out of 9. The food is truly amazing and they are generous with the portions. Only waited 5 mins to be seated every time and the staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The...prices are so good and they do specials on certain days. Have a look at the pics and decide for your self, prices vary but a meal for 2 of us mainly just main meals and sodas was between $50-$60More

My Server was Jaelan.R- He was great!! Friendly, helpful gave great recommendation on drinks, the food and the best deal for a Solo diner. Jaelan is a great conversationalist. He's restored my faith back into Red Lobster Customer Service. He was worth every $ in...Tip. This restaurant looked bright, cheery, welcoming and you could see your food properly for a change instead of that dim light it used to have And it used to smell stale of spilt drinks/beer/food on the carpeted area i.e. under the tables, etc- when I was last there which was years ago. I am happy to return and I hope they turn ALL the Red Lobsters in the USA into looking like this one or even better.More

The 3-star rating is only because my food tasted decent enough. I ordered the two Maine lobster tails and they at least gave me fresh and hot cheddar bay biscuits YUM! That’s where the good news ends. Service was absolutely abysmal and they struck out...with me. Strike 1 happened the moment I walked in the door. I approached the host, let him know I was dining in, and let him know I prefer I table over the bar (not every solo person wants to sit at the bar). He acknowledged and told me he would seat the family of three that were waiting first and then come right back and seat me. Well, another family of two walked in after that and he came back and asked for my name as though he hadn’t spoken to me before. Weird! He then proceeded to seat the family that walked in after me first. I spoke up and let him know I was there first and should’ve been seated first but somehow he got confused supposedly and thought the other family was first. Terrible. Strike 2 was the waiter informing me that they didn’t have any ice tea. What kind of restaurant doesn’t make sure they’re adequately stocked up on something basic like iced tea?? The last I checked there’s no iced tea shortages! I mean there’s just no excuse for that. When I expressed my disappointment about them lacking something so basic to the waitress, she looked at me like she couldn’t have cared less and just mumbled what else they have available. Strike 3 was the fact that besides bringing me my food, the waitress really didn’t check in with me regularly and she didn’t offer me a refill on the nearly $5 a glass lemonade that I had to order since they had no iced tea. She seemed more concerned about the table in front of me than me. I guess their money is somehow greener than mine. So, to balance out not getting refills I just took some of it out of her tip. She’s lucky she got a tip at all. This location turned out to be a real letdown and I’m glad there are other Red Lobsters in the area because I won’t be returning to this location thanks to their poor service. Waste of my gas and money.More

I'd give zero stars if I could. We waited over 25 minutes for a table and then once we had the table we sat for 45 minutes with no food. The restaurant was not busy and there were a ton of people working. It took...35 minutes to recieve a margarita and they did not have milk for the kids meals. Also the bathroom was a disaster. The changing table was broken and not safe for children. Our last night of vacation was ruined because this restaurant is obviously poorly managed. They also tried to get us to purchase a photo of our family BEFORE we even got our food. If you're a tourist, beware and stay away. This restaurant obviously preys on tourists and the locals know to stay clear.More

Stayed at universal and tried this place. Family of four. Tacos, shrimp and scallops. Twenty minute wait for a table which we were ok with. Ordered and then waited an hour and fifteen for the food. We were patient in anticipation and when it arrived...it beared no resemblance whatsoever to the menu. Things seemed such an inconvenience to the staff, even a potion of ketchup. Plus there was a side missing. As we watched around us we could see uncleared tables (lots) and others waiting as long for food. The hostess was passive aggressive (ish) when dealing with our polite feedback. Appreciate that she has little control over the whole experience. Poor operational management so senior management need to listen up on this and act. We ate. Paid and left. Reflected on how sad the experience was compared to how Orlando used to be and the US service in general. We will spend our “dollars” elsewhere next time, probably not in the US to be honest…More

We arrived and were told there would be a 5min wait which we accepted. We were seated in a busy area, though in other areas there were no customers. Our server was nice, however the service was a bit scattered, and it seemed as though...our server had too many tables to manage. Some staff were off their feet, while others were standing around looking bored. I feel as though the tables should have been more evenly distributed between staff. We ordered the grilled Atlantic salmon with two sides, as well as the snow crab legs. The meal came out promptly, though one side was forgotten and we had to ask the server twice to bring it out. We also asked for butter for the biscuits which was never brought out. The salmon was a tad over cooked, but we finished it none the less. Pro: the snow crab legs were enjoyable, and you get a good sized portion. Con: if you have allergies, don’t expect to be able to eat much. I have a soy allergy and could not eat a single lobster dish - the menu was severely limited. Take away: once is enough, I wouldn’t go back.More
