Big variety of seafood and prices. Had short wait for a seat. This is your chance to try some seafood you haven't eaten before.

We had a reservation which was a good thing they were busy, and we got in with in I would say 15 min. Our waiter Rich was really great, but our food was also just really slow in coming out. We got our salads, rolls, drinks all well and good, but just thought it was kind of long in coming.... More

Arrived at 4:45 pm on a Tuesday and the place was packed. Told we had to wait 45 minutes. No place to sit in the lobby and no place in the bar. We waited 35 minutes and were seated. Always like it when they beat the time. Why don't they provide appetizers during the wait? The Atlantic Salmon and green... More

I was in on Monday for an early dinner, everything was fine until after dinner. I didn't see my server anywhere​? I had to ask another server for my check she also cleared my plates. I am assuming it was shift change time, there were many people waiting at the door when I left. I was prepared to give my... More

We have been going to this location for some time with not good results. But I got a gift card for a gift so we thought one more time. When we arrived we were seated right away. Our waitress Cara C. was a newer addition but she was great! The food was very good and hot and Cara stayed visible.... More

Went to this location with 2 others and should have known better when we wait at the entrance for 5 minutes before anyone even acknowledged that we walked into the restaurant! Then had another 10-15 minute wait for a table. Ordered the endless shrimp and had to request cocktail sauce for the breaded shrimp. Got a order of parmesan shrimp... More

We went here with a group of 6. Most got the endless shrimp, and the waitress was right on top of refills of both drinks and the shrimp. I appreciate that Red Lobster understands Celiac/Gluten Free issues. No complaints from anyone at the table. Well, except that the Sriracha Shrimp was verrrrry hot! Giggles all around as everyone tried it.... More

We always eat here as a family since this is the best restaurant in town which serves seafood. The prices are a little too high compare to other seafood restaurants but the serving are big portions and the food taste is above average. Tip: it will be best if you will call to make a table reservation prior to dining... More

My Wife, Daughter and myself happened to be in Madison for an appointment and wanted to grab some lunch. Truthfully, Red Lobster wasn't our first choice, but the place we chose was closed. Honestly, it was the marketing that got me as I remembered the 'endless shrimp' promotion and it sounded tasty. My Wife loves seafood, so Red Lobster it... More
