All the ingredients were there, but everything was almost. Drinks for 4 people came in three clusters, timing was off with salads and soups. Didn't make the drinks as ordered... not dry when ordered dry. Plates were "thrown" together. Bitter spilled on plates by kitchen and server. Plate handed to customers. My daughter likes the biscuits or we would go... More

Here for endless shrimp and it was super slow service. Our waitress seemed as though we were an inconvenience to her, when we would order our next order it took forever to get it and the portions are definitely smaller than last year. The only time we eat at red lobster is during endless shrimp but I won't be frequenting... More

My husband and I were going out for a Saturday evening planning to enjoy one of our favorite restaurants then attend the Colts pre-season game. We gave ourselves plenty of time to sit and enjoy a nice meal (which also happened to be an anniversary outing) and thankfully we did. We arrived around 5pm expecting the restaurant to not be...

Recently dined in this restaurant. Was not very busy and when I looked at the prices I could see why. They had no specials for kids and it was overpriced for the food we got. I usually eat at the mansfield ohio location and never have issues. Ended up eating appetizers as the kids couldn't find a chicken tender meal... More

Shadeland Ave. Red Lobster used to be awesome. We loved celebrating holiday eve meals and anniversaries there. The last four times we dined there, our food was hardly warm, fried too long and floating in cooking oil. So sad, they have such awesome seafood.

I was very impressed with this location. The food had marvelous flavor that I must highly complement. It was very fresh and prepared with expertise. The coconut encrusted butterfly shrimp stood out to me as being especially delicious, with this sweet taste that went well with the piña colada dip. Even the sides were great. The salad, green beans, and... More

It was late, we were seated quickly and we were in a hurry, and the staff was very helpful and served us quickly and the food was fantastic. Even though it was a chain, everything was cooked perfectly. I was impressed.

Thank AAUmom37
