Food was in line with my expectation and Red Lobster quality. Meal portions were restaurant-average. The veggies were over-cooked and somewhat tasteless . . . but the seafood was great. It was a touch on the busy side. We waited about 15 minutes for to be seated, and then service was a little slow, but friendly and attentive.

We're not big on chain restaurants but the Red Lobster has pretty good food. We usually get the ultimate feast which includes lobster, crab and two kinds of shrimp and the shrimp tacos.

Maybe because it was on a weekend. I really love the food in Red Lobster. Red Lobster has one of the best customer services among many... More

Red Lobster was a place we would go to at least once every 3 or 4 weeks ... good portions and reasonably priced. But, it seems as though those days are gone. Last few times here, as well as in a few others we have gone to in Florida in the past year ... just not the same. I will... More

I had a crunchy fish sandwich on brioche with a baked potato. The iced tea was freshly brewed and very refreshing.

This is your average Red Lobster food. Nothing great about their food or service just the basic average.

Couldn't find waiter to get check and then waited long time to have him pick up and process. Not sure if waiter or kitchen problem but original order was kitchen as right order was... More
