Excellent Biscuits!

After a long day shopping we decided to go to Red Lobster and have never been disappointed. The biscuits are so good. I had the coconut shrimp and I just loved it especially the coconut dipping sauce that was included. I will certainly go back!

I was quite surprised to find that there was a Red Lobster still around in Canada. So anticipating the traditional congealed garlic shrimp that we grew up on, we decided to try it at this huge location. Boy I was totally blown away! The food came out fast and fresh! The goofy biscuits are still awful. The garlic shrimp weren't... More

We decided to have lunch at Red Lobster in celebration of a family Birthday. There were 13 of us. What a complete disaster!! I know it was boxing day but the place was half empty to begin with. It was 1:00 pm and right from the get go, it was one thing after the other. We had 2-3 servers and... More

Went here with my wife for dinner. We hadn't been here in a long time. Had a good time. Food was good and the biscuits were amazing as always. Went during the strip promotion and left very satisfied. Will be back.

I've been to this chain at different locations. Was happy to find the same quality. Food was delicious and staff accommodating.

OK, I'll put the bias out there. I don't like Red Lobster. I find the US style menu offers way too many choices, way too much food, yet, when you want to order what you specifically and actually want to eat, they tell you they can't do that. Slow service. Usually noisy. And most of the locations I've tried over... More

I had heard so much about Red Lobster, so a friend and I finally decided to try it. Boy! NEVER AGAIN am I making that mistake. The food was absolutely horrendous! Everything tasted like it was either reheated or frozen. Nothing fresh. There was too much salt in every last dish. Highly overpriced for the quality of food. I was... More

When we arrived after 8PM we were told that there was a 25 minute wait, but it definitely didn't take that long. The waiter (Bill) was excellent and attentive, even though the restaurant was packed with a lot of people vying for attention. The food was standard RL fare. The clam chowder was served piping hot, which is always nice.... More
