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.

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

I'm from the Bahamas and I make 2-3 trips per year. And I always make it my business to stop to my fav red lobster. I always get professional courteous service and the food is always amazing. Thank you for the great service over the years! See you soon.

I have not been to this Red Lobster for quite a few years. Frankly, the place was dismal and the food was ok, not bad, just ok. Since we had a gift card we ate here for dinner. Started off with the mushroom caps, which were excellent. Then we both had the "dueling lobsters". I can't believe how excellent they... More
