One of the specials (Admiral) with battered fish, breaded shrimp and scallops seemed to have been deep friend at too low a temperature, then microwaved. It was very hot - but oh so greasy. The Ceasar salad was a bit limp. I was disappointed.

we were treating ourself to this place on a special occasion.. The salad was minimal and not finished before the entrée arrived . the scallops were almost raw, the fries were cold an greasy. The shrimp skewers were poorly cleaned, almost 50 percent of shell left, and not cleaned. For the price, I was not impressed. Almost 90 dollars for... More

They had the best fish and chips and at a reasonable price and we will go back again some day. The service was very good and we had to wait an hour to get a seat. There are no reservations excepted there.

chain seafood is rarely memorable in a good way. This place is about what you'd expect, except the prices are too high. The lobster fest entrees are over adulterated with stuff that covers up most of the actual lobster flavour and the sauces and stuffings are pretty greasy.

I visited the restaurant on the 19th of Feb with my wife and 3 yr old daughter to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were served by Cassandra who did a great job ensuring that we are enjoying our fabulous dinner. We had a lobster dish and another fish dish nicely seasoned with a tasty dressing that included crabs. I would... More

Party of three, celebrating our daughter birthday. Good service, polite staff BUT what ruined our evening was the food awfully salted -lobster, squid, shrimp, broccoli, etc.- all our orders were extremely loaded with salt. Used to be my wife and our daughter's preferred place for birthdays and special occasions. So far NO intention of going back. Manager approached our table... More

My partner and I were in Kitchener for a quick family get together. We were quite hungry when we pulled into Kitchener and decided to try Red Lobster. The last time I ate at a Red Lobster was about 10 years ago and my partner had not been there at all. Unfortunately, the restaurant had an odour that was very... More

On the commercials, Red Lobster is shown as a bright, sunny experience full of fresh, light seafood. OI found that my experience was the exact opposite. When I walked into the restaurant, I found that I felt as though I was walking onto a lobster catching ship. It was dark, dingy, and very squishy. It was the polar opposite of... More
