“Fantastic Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

Fantastic atmosphere was the restaurant the pictures of all the lighthouses reminded me of home the staff were all very nice and the way they all pitched in to help each other was very nice to see and I mean from the greeters to the managers. And the food was very good. The restaurant was not stuffed with tables there was space around all the tables the restaurant was very clean. and even upon leaving the staff was just so polite. Would I recommend this restaurant most definitely would.

“Overall, a very pleasant experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Warmly greeted by hostess and one of the managers upon arrival
Service friendly and prompt
Check in by another manager during and after our meal - was great to see them all smiling and working alongside servers
Biscuits and beverages came promptly - salad fresh and crisp
Dueling lobster tails very good - green beans nicely done - mashed potatoes good - a little denser than preferred
Seaport lobster and shrimp good - broccoli somewhat overdone
Overall, a very pleasant experience

“it's a little busy BUT.......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

We've never been disappointed at Red Lobster...but the wait to get a table can be long. The past few times we've eaten at the bar...the service is great (at the bar) and the food is the same as in the dining room....so WHY WAIT!

“It's nice when things do not change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

It has been a long time since I have been to the Red Lobster and the last time I was there it was to the Burlington location on Fairview Street. You still get a choice of Caesar or garden salad with garlic cheese biscuits. The Caesar salad is made with nice crisp romaine lettuce and lightly dressed with there Caesar dressing with croutons and shaved parmesan cheese. The garlic cheese biscuits are still spectacular, and they are not shy about bringing you a refill.

I enjoyed fresh Arctic Char grilled with Lemon garlic butter served with French fries and steamed broccoli. My Mother had one of there promotional meals that included clam strips, scallops and a piece of haddock (all fried) with steamed broccoli and she opted for the garden salad with a raspberry balsamic dressing. Both meals were delicious and served promptly.

This meal was a nice change of pace from our usual Friday night dinner together and a opportunity to take it easy with no work or clean up for either of us. It will be some place to return to in the future for a nice relaxed dinner.

“Good service, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Red Lobster is consistent to say the least. The food is generally ok but the service is very good. This last dinner followed the same pattern. Waiting for a table is the norm but waiting at the bar is generally a decent experience. Once seated, the server was attentive and personable. The Caesar salad was extremely salty and more so than usual. The Ultimate feast was ok. It was nice to have a veg option now instead of potato and the green beans were decent. The shrimp were a bit greasy, the lobster tail a bit chewy but the crab legs were sweet.
