We wanted to go out and have a nice seafood meal. Red Lobster is always good. The server was very attentive and kept our glasses full and the food came out fast. It was well prepared and delicious. The cheddar bay biscuits were delicious as always.

When we got here the line was standing out the door. We decided the endless shrimp was the reason for the line... Once we got in the endless shrimp were awesome..the shrimp never stopped.. And they were cooked to perfection!!!

My dinner went just as I expected starting with the famous cheddar bay biscuits that I love. The lobster artichoke dip was tasty and filling. I actually ate too much of it not leaving much room for the entree as I was dining alone on a business trip. Anyway, the never ending shrimp was tasty as usual. The baked potato... More

I've wrote a review for this Red Lobster before with a glowing 5 stars. This is where we like to go for special Birthday dinners. Last night was my husband's birthday.

I rolled into this Red Lobster after a long drive and hotel issues at 9:45 pm. The kitchen was set to close at 10. Our server was prompt and we ordered quickly. The food was exactly as it should be, the server was just the right amount of attentive and I was finally able to unwind. A pleasant experience.

Food was well prepared. Good variety. Price is a little high and the food isn't conducive for reheating... Would rather pay a few dollars less for less and still be full. Drink prices aren't listed and are also quite high.

There were four in our party and all food was excellent. Hostesses and wait staff were excellent. Always stop here when we're in town and it never disappoints us.
