“My husband and I's first date spot...”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

11 1/2 years ago, this is where my husband took me on our first date. Tonight, I'm out of town on business and I dined alone. Still just as good as it was back then. Great service, great food. I ordered the New broiled seafood trio, with stuffed shrimp, tilapia and garlic shrimp. It also comes with salad and of course cheddar bay biscuits! YUM!

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Red Lobster is one of the trio of restaurants operated by Darden, the other two being Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse. All are semi-pricey, and all offer lunch entrees at far more reasonable prices than their dinner entrees. People watching their waist-lines but still craving excellent food should consider the lunch menu option, served as late as 4 in our city.

They have a lunch entree which consists of a trio iof shrimp scampi, fried shrimp, and a boiled whitefish. When teamed with a salad and cheddar bay biscuits, it's a lot of food. Make sure your server brings you butter for the cheddar bay biscuits, plenty of shrimp sauce for the fried shrimp, and tartar sauce for the white fish.

“Good Food”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

The food was good, service was very good, however the screaming kids at two tables did spoil the evening somewhat.

The Lobster was great, the drinks were great the only thing that was not good there was the mashed potatoes. Otherwise a good place to eat.
