butter feast

Typical Red Lobster. Go in for the cheddar bay biscuits, come out feeling like you've had a bath in butter. This restaurant visit was nothing to write home about, but could have been worse.

Tonight my husband and I, along with our daughter went to this location for supper. The wait was to be expected on a Friday night. When we were shown to our table, we had to ask 3 times for a kids menu. We were seated with only 2 sets of silverware at the table. We asked multiple times for another... More

An above average meal and service this time around. We visit this Red Lobster every so often and it is consistant. We do notice a difference since the transfer of ownership in portion sizes and/or sizes of some individual items, i.e., shrimp, scallops and some fresh fish. Also noticed is a total layout change with the menu. In our opinion... More

Visited on our last night in Athens and were not disappointed! The standard has been retained and new variety of meals added. Staff are attentive without being intrusive.

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.
