Red Lobster- Ft. Lauderdale

Nice building, well landscaped, well maintained. The staff is good, and its lobster fest time. Susan & I had ice tea and cheesey biscuits. She had trout and vegetables, and I had shrimp trio and a salad.

We had not been to a Red Lobster in about 20 years I think. Gave this one a try. Lobster Fest! Okay, let's see how the restaurant has progressed. All staff were attentive and polite. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. We ordered a bottle of wine and two orders of their dueling lobster tails. The dish was okay with... More

Server was very good, clean restaurant, very busy on a saturday afternoon. All in all if I get another gift card we will go, but I... More

Called at 10:25pm this past Friday or Saturday and the guy told me they can't take orders that far past 10pm... What the heck your open till 11pm and you know darn well that if I walked on with a party at 1025 you would seat me. Makes no sense that you'd refuse a 2 entree takeout order at the... More

We had a good dining experience at the Red Lobster. Our server was attentive, prompt, and friendly. Our dinners arrived hot and tasty. Portions were generous and the prices were reasonable. Of course, the dinner rolls are fantastic. We will go back again for sure.

We were on the hunt for a place where we could have a meal and a glass of wine. Apparently everyone in our area thought the same thing as almost every place we went was quite full. We arrived at Red Lobster just as another table of 5 left. It was a good meal-not spectacular but good. The service was... More

Short wait time. Cold clam chowder, I ordered new sweet potatoes but they put sour cream instead of butter and it ruined it. Person across from us took off his shoe and played with his wife while we tried to eat and after telling mgr they did nothing about it. I will never go there again.

After a late night flight, I was glad to find a place to get a good meal. I had a taste for snow crab legs and this place was just what I needed. Good food, clean environment and great service. Thank you - you made my day.
