We were mid-afternoon arriving so the place was not busy, but we were seated upon arrival, a waitress was immediately available and continued to provide efficient and friendly service throughout the meal. The food was about like other Red Lobsters I've visited but it was nice to be able to eat in a quiet area of the restaurant and to... More

My husband and I went to the Athens, GA Red Lobster for dinner on Friday October 10, 2014. We went for the endless shrimp special. The server was trying to do his best. We felt sorry for him. The food was so slow coming out of the kitchen we just paid the tab and left. The breaded shrimp were cooked... More

The experience was horrible. Went early to beat the crowd. Only to have to wait in lobby 15 minutes when the restaurant was practically empty. Waittress could not bring out the right condiments or straws. Ordered a alcoholic drink it was so watered down. The food was cold when we finally got it. My wife complain to the manager but... More

Food was fresh and we had a great waiter. We did not have to send one food item back and we all had special requests with our food (there was 5 of us). I enjoyed it and I will return.

Ordered calamari appetizer, the majority of the dish consisted of fried brocolli and tomotoes that were dipped in the calamari batter to make it look like you were getting a lot of calamari. When you buy the ultimate feast you now get only one cluster as opposed to two before. If I wanted to have Chinese food I would of... More

We have been avoiding Red Lobster chain in general for the past several years now, but since we had a guest who wanted to go we tried one last time. What a mistake. Although our server Heather was excellent, everything else fell short. Our guest ordered the $15.99 Four Course, and my wife had the "Build Your Own", I had... More

We have not gone to this restaurant for several years because of bad service and food. My wife hurt her finger on the restroom door by a manger opening the door on the other side. Some of the waitresses and the hostess laughed at my wife's pain reaction. The ONLY reason we went there today is because of the gift... More

This my second review of this establishment and I'm afraid it's worse than the first one. I went for the dueling lobster tails and was very disappointed. The lobster was cooked too long, it was rubbery and very tough. I will have to give them credit though for shrimp/crabmeat stuffing. It was delicious as well as the biscuits. My wife's... More

Had the baked lobster dish. Too much pasta. I was afraid that I was going to leave some of the other baked fish behind. The mussels were on the small side. Maybe they needed more exercise. (My weak attempt at humor). I hope they keep the baked dishes on their main menu. I have ordered the 7 oz. bleu steak... More
