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.

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.

Great meal! We ordered the Lobsterfest and it was fabulous. Very fresh and great crab stuffed lobster. Great service by Riana and very clean establishment. Will go again soon.

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
