Ordinary seafood at extraordinary prices

I only go to Red Lobster because my mom likes it and insists. Start with the appetizer. Lobster, crab and seafood stuffed mushrooms. They forgot to mention the bread crumbs which, as far as I can tell are the primary ingredient. Bland. Not the faintest crab or lobster flavor... read more

Not a single bad thing to say about this place, great location, the staff here are just so friendly and take care of everything so quickly. The food was outstanding, one of the best steaks I have ever had and it was cooked perfectly. One of the best overall dining experiences I have had in a long time.

My wife and I have made this our Default place of Dining. When ever we're not sure where we want to eat, we go here. The food is always good, the place is always clean and the Service is exceptional. Over the past several years of Dining here, we have never had a bad experience.

Ok we know what we are going to get when we eat at Red Lobster, or at least I do. Priced somewhat ok but always small portions with the sea food. Now if they could just hold back the gross amounts of salt being used to make there food taste good!!! And I think everyone knows that butter makes everything... More

The dinner at Red Lobster was much better than I remembered from a few years ago. The lobster salad was particularly outstanding. Service was bland, not really unfriendly but not very helpful, the waitress seemed to know little about the menu and we had to wait for a while to get seated because no one was out front.

Loved this place. My husband and I came here for dinner in April 2015. The menu has an excellent selection, so much so that I want to come here again and again. There is a special 3 course menu which I had, and enjoyed very much. The service was great. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and never far away to... More

I guess a previous reviewer doesn't understand the basics of why you may see empty tables but wait for a seat. It isn't about the tables, it is about the level of staff to serve them. Yes, it is a chain and by that I don't mean bad. I mean that it is pretty reliable that you know what you... More

OK this is a chain, but still one expects decent food and service. You do not get it here. We made the mistake of getting off the freeway to eat and this was one of two bad choices. Stay on the freeway and wait til Ventura or Santa Barbara. This is a seafood restaurant which claims to have some fresh... More
