$58 lunch for 2

We had a $50 gift card from Christmas. I had a wonderful 1.25 pound stuffed Maine Lobster, $34. Hubby had yummy shrimp tacos. We shared a cookie lava dessert. Friendly staff, easy parking. They advertise 7 different lunch option for $7.99, but we didn't try any of those. Will return.

food was bland, service was non-existent. I went to dinner early and alone, I expected quick service at that hour, the restaurant was certainly slow enough that they could have provided it, but the waitresses didn't seem interested in serving, or taking orders, or checking on guests. Food took a long time, and when it did come it lacked flavor

The food options are many and food is good, service staff are friendly and helpful. Am sure the freshness of the seafood can be improved on and so should the portion of crab legs

Delicious shrimp cocktail! Shrimps were fresh and crispy! Restaurant was clean, service was quick and friendly! Lots of variety on the menu and prices were not overly expensive for what you get! I will definitely be back again!

Maybe it takes some time to be attended, but you can order some drinks at the begining. I do suggest to arrive before 7PM and you can assure a table.

Ate dinner here. Restaurant is newer and was very clean. Service was very good and friendly. Food was good and consistent with the brand. If you like the Red Lobster chain of restaurants, you will like this location.

The Red Lobster has an all new menu. We had lunch with excellent service and we could stay and relax as long as we wanted. I ordered the all new wood fired shrimp tacos which came with rice and were fresh and very tasty. My friend had the fish and chips. Will return to try another one of their dishes... More

I had fish and chips with sam adams octoberfest beer. I ate at the bar and had a good experience. I recommend eating at the bar because your bar tender will aways be there working their behind off and if you need anything you can just shout .. plus she's a hard worker!

While Red Lobster is a chain restaurant, we like to go there sometimes, especially if they have a special offer. Then its a nice deal to dine at Red Lobster. Without a special offer, we usually go else where. (Example: we will drive to the coast to enjoy a seafood restaurant with ocean views). As such, Red Lobster is a... More

We went to Red Lobster for a birthday dinner and from the beginning of our experience, not a very good start. We had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated and once we were, I was a bit shocked on how empty the area was, but thought well maybe they are under staffed. Well about 10 minutes at least... More
