My husband I decided to go out for the feature that Red Lobster had on. We had been working hard and thought we deserved a treat. Our waiter, George, was terrific. We had the lobster stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, which we always enjoy and then we ordered our main course. Mine came and it was barely warm. So when... More

We were on our way to an Oktoberfest venue and immediately changed our minds as we passed this Red Lobster! We were warmly greeted by friendly humourous staff who offered to make our experience better than Oktoberfest. It was! Our waitress was terrific! Food was delicious and perfectly done. My husband had lots of fun with the crab legs in... More

There were 4 of us that went for lunch and all had something different. The place is a little dated but very clean. The hostess was welcoming and we got seated right away, not too busy as we were there about 130pm. The waitress took our drink order right away and brought out their "signature" biscuits. All of us had... More

I know for many it is a tradition to go to The Red Lobster after church. For me it was simply my second time there. I was warmly welcomed by the Hostess & shown to a table to wait for my friends. The waitress was stellar. She knew the menu well and made some suggestions as appropriate. She has worked... More

Took my mom for her birthday on Sunday. Food was cold but the waitress was just awful. She kept rushing us and taking our plates away even though we were not finished...and the restaurant has not busy! Would never go back.

Their food is ok. As with everything, not what it used to be. The most important thing to keep in mind is it is always busy weekends for dinner. They do give you a pager button, so you can sit on 1 of the 2 benches outside or in the bar while you wait. Although with a bunch of people... More

I've had good experiences at this restaurant so I was disappointed with my meal yesterday. I was having a fish craving so I picked the Tilapia with roasted vegetables which is cooked in the parchment paper. The tilapia was gummy and flavourless, the rice was the only thing that was seasoned and the failed to include onions on their list... More

It has been years since we have been back to red lobster due to our dislike of service & food. What a great change, atmosphere is fresh and friendly. Our server was thorough and efficient. Wine was delicious, had the Peller estates Cabernet. I had a trio plate which included lobster pasta , shrimp & salmon! Food was hot &... More

This is a very busy restaurant on weekend evenings. If you wish to enjoy the place on a Friday or Saturday evening either come early i.e. 4:30 PM or a couple of hours later. However, you could arrive at 5:30 and hang out in the comfortable bar area until your table is ready. The service here is very friendly and... More
