Crazy busy on weekend evenings

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... read 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.

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

The lobster was tiny and rubbery. The butter dip was so salty it was not eatable. Overcrowded, staff very rushed. Worst restaurant experience I've ever had. Other red lobsters have been better.

I always enjoy my meal at Red Lobster especially the fixed price 4 course meal. You make a choice of soup, then salad, main course and then dessert. Excellent taste and excellent value.
