Atmosphere was ok - service was good, waitress was friendly and accommodating. Food just ok - lobster bisque rather tasteless, and appetizer for dinner (lobster pizza) was just ok too - I don't understand all the hype but I know people love it. Drink seriously didn't have any alcohol in it. I am sensitive to that, and didn't feel a... More

While meandering by car in the upper Midwest last month we found ourselves in a place we'd never heard of before: Michigan City. Tiring of the standard fast food and/or low budget offerings we asked our GPS to tell us the names of the restaurants in town. When we saw Red Lobster we headed for it immediately. This Red Lobster,... More

I don't know if they were short handed, but when you walk in after a 30 minute wait outside & you walk past 5 empty tables, it's a little annoying. Service was decent and the food was hot & delicious. Margarita was frothy and weak, not frozen & fruity. Of course I'll go back.

Declining restaurant always loved red lobster but just like all the chains gets worse over time. Probably won't go back

If fish is a favourite for you then this is the place to eat at. They have Maine lobsters, crabs, shrimp, salmon, tilapia..... to choose from. The cheddar bay biscuits served with the drinks are too delicious. A good option for two persons is to share the four course dinner meal - a choice of soup, salad, mains and dessert.... More

I have been to many Red Lobsters around the country and I think this one is great! The servers are always attentive and it is food upon which you can depend.

The service was excellent and the food came out fast and was very fresh. My husband and I both had the summer specials which consisted of a wonderful variety of seafood. I would highly recommend this place to eat if you are in the Michigan City area.

my personal experiences with this restaurant has been bad. Poor servers, lack luster food menu and overpriced. It used to be the top restaurant in town but others are now better.

I love Red Lobster and I make it a point to go to this restaurant whenever I visit a new city. Alas I really can't compare it to Red Lobster restaurants here in the Chicago Suburbs. We were there for lunch on Father's Day so of course I expected it to be packed. The greeters at the counter looked flustered... More

It was easy to find, had plenty of parking and was very clean both inside and out. Workers were all very courteous and friendly and food was great as always.
