We've enjoyed this restaurant for years, but it has been in a steady decline. We tried to have a late lunch there today and wound up just walking out. The host led us to the very last booth by the kitchen. We asked if we could be seated somewhere else because we had a really bad experience in that booth... More

Ate with my family. My ceasar salad was wilted, and dark green with some slimey lettuce. My husband finally got a refill... My broccoli was dry, my daughter's mashed potatoes were dry and cement like. So disappointed. When you 70.00 for a meal andit isnt good it is such a rip off.

This Red Lobster is one of my favorites. The cheddar bay biscuits are always hot and the seafood is always delicious. Most of the servers are great and helpful!

First time to this location and it was good. New menu prices are higher than before so would recommend going at lunch (11-3). I had the coconut shrimp. Very large portion as it was worth the price. Came with one side and a salad. Food was hot & good. Service was good too.

I can't eat fish but my husband loves fish. We went to the restaurant to get fish & but I got Chicken. The Maple Glazed Chicken was good. Husband liked what he got. I got plenty to eat. The Red Lobster biscuits were very good. I would eat there again. Also we got a very nice waiter.

Went to eat the endless shrimp on this visit. We sat at the bar & ordered. The guy behind the bar taking our order knew his job. He answered every question that we threw at him. He was Johnny on the spot for our drinks, biscuits & shrimp. He even mentioned to us a couple different shrimp that was not... More

I'd previously stopped a few weeks ago at the Christiansburg Red Lobster and ordered the three crab cake meal and it was the best! Big thick crab cakes large portions of rice etc. Well the Bristol Red Lobster can't come close to this. I ordered the same three crab cakes and they were greasy and thin with lots of bread... More
