Yesterday a friend and I decided to stop at Red Lobster for lunch. Our server was Eugene, he was wonderful and ever so helpful. He recommended the King Crab dinner it didn't disappoint. Crabmeat starts Monday and I am sure it want disappoint.

Sit in the bar and ask for Eugene, he's the best. We have been going here for lunch for years. He provides service with a smile and knows how to schedule your courses with the kitchen for an enjoyable meal. We're disappointed when he's not working.

We visit this Red Lobster location on and off, but it's been a while, so I'll stick to my most recent experience. My husband and I went for a quick dinner. We were seated promptly as we arrived before the dinner rush. Our server was social and pointed out to us that they had their unlimited shrimp promotion, which changed... More

This Red Lobster was just O.K. I thought it was a little overpriced, and the Bartender didn't know how to make my cocktail properly. That being said this WAS a Red Lobster, and since I have never reviewed one before here on Trip Advisor I thought I would choose this location because I was on Vacation from out of State.... More

Prices are reasonable, food was good. I guess because I'm on a low sodium diet the fish seem to be a bit salty to me although the fish was great. Everyone had different meals some beef, some all fish and some had shrimp.

This was the first time we've ever eaten at Red Lobster and it was the worst experience ever! My son and I reviewed the menu and were given biscuits while we waited. Although good, the biscuits were very, very salty. When the waitress returned I had to ASK for napkins because we were never given any. We ordered lobster tail,... More

We arrived during a busy time. Our wait was approximately 30 minutes. Once we were seated our waiter engaged us immediately; however, it went very slow from there. We didn't receive our bread until after the soup and salad, which took a while to come out. It was delicious. The main entrees followed shortly thereafter leading to a bit of... More
