The chain experience

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... read 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

This is a great go to restaurant for seafood lovers. There is always something for everyone! The service is great and the food is divine. My family and I come here for lunch or dinner on a regular basis.

Needing to add some pounds I wanted lobster for lunch. Seemed decadent to me. I told the waitress I wanted lobster. She pointed out the special that was beer basted. It was actually soaking in beer. You couldn't taste any of the food. I sent it back. I wanted Lobster. She pointed to two pictures one of a large lobster... More

Took my dad here for lunch. The atmosphere is great, and the food is always tasty. The staff at this restaurant were extremely friendly and they were very attentive. A great dining experience

We stopping for lunch on a weekday and were seated quickly. Service was prompt and genial. Food good, but not great. For a chain restaurant, they do a good job. You don't go expecting a Michelin star.

What can I say, we passed by here for lunch, good food, love the cheddar biscuits, no real wait around that time everything came out promptly. I have to confess never had lobster at red lobster. For some reason it never seemed attractive to do so. Strange.

The service was excellent, the restaurant was clean and the food was served hot and to perfection. The crab legs were moist and delicious. The salad came to my specifications and was crispy with just the right amount of dressing. I'll do it again.

My wife had a $25 gifted card we needed to use on our vacation to the Ventura area so we looked up the address on the internet. It was raining when my wife and I arrived. They greeted us at our car with a huge umbrella and escorted us to the door. Every staff member we came in contact with... More
