not bad

This was my first Red Lobster I went to. I was 18yrs old on a road trip with my cousin and I thought it was great and inexpensive. 30+ years later it's just not bad but still reasonable. Lets face it if you want seafood and you're traveling with kids this is a pretty good option. My kids still... read more

Red Lobster has been a staple of mine for 20+ years. I have been with them during their ups and downs. Lately, they appear to be defining themselves as an upscale sea food resturant; however, the only thing that seems to be upscale are their prices. The food quality and service was the worst I have ever experienced in over... More

We stopped here while visiting FL. The food was great, the waitstaff was nice & friendly. They offered large portions so we were able to take some home with us for lunch the next day. It was clean & easy to get in & out of. We really enjoyed being able to sit down, enjoy a meal & drink on... More

Love this restaurant. The seafood is fantastic. Shame about the coating on everything but that is obviously an American thing because trying to get anything out there without batter or crumbs is virtually impossible.

Some times "good enough" is all you get & this restaurant is an example of truly average - from the service to the food - it was OK, but nothing to brag about. Our first clue was a lack of patrons at 8pm on a Saturday night.

Never been a huge fan of chain restaurants but I have to admit the dinner my wife and I had here last night was excellent. Never eaten at a Red Lonster before so not sure if this location is just better than everywhere else but this was the best seafood I have eaten in a long time and at the... More

Dine here whenever I'm craving Snow Crab Legs because they are so good. We saw the new dish - Cajun Shrimp Alfredo and could not wait to try it. It was a busy night so we opted to sit at the bar. The bartender/server Lashan aka Lala was terrific. Sadly I cannot say the same for the new dish. Pasta... More

My husband and I visited this Red Lobsters with 10 other people and everyone at the table enjoyed their food. This restaurant is an older building close to a strip mall. It was on a Friday night so we had a 30 minute wait. After we were seated the servers were attentive and ready to provide service. The bread was... More
