My mom enjoyed the steak and shrimp and I had the maple cherry glazed chicken which was delicious. Not sure if our server was new or just inattentive but we received our salads and she walked away without leaving any silverware so we grabbed some from a nearby table that had been set. Asked for extra dressing and did not... More

We are foodies and travel a lot. We also owned and managed restaurants for many years. Red Lobster is one of those chains that you either love or hate. We love it but you need to.be careful how you order. Always get the cheesy biscuits. They are outstanding. There lobsters are very good and fresh. Not so for the rest.... More

I can't say that everything at this restaurant is good but I ordered the savory grilled salmon w/ citrus glaze and it was great. Red Lobsters, as a whole, are pretty predictable, usually good but this meal was very good.

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

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.

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.
