Took my family out for dinner. The minute we got in our experience was affected by having to wait 15min.for a table when we could clearly see there was tons of room available. My Cesar salad dressing treated like a thick blob of mayo. Hardly any garlic or cheese. My father's seafood Alfredo tasted if each bite you were taking... More

We started with crab cakes which were well seasoned and cooked, nice ;-) The real treat was the 3 pound crab stuff roasted whole lobster. It was perfectly cooked, juicy not chewy and the stuffing was well seasoned as well. The waiter was attentive. A very nice meal indeed and one of the better RL locations.

We waited over an hour to be seated. When we got to the back, half of the restaurant was empty. We were told, yeah, we don't have enough staff. We then continued to wait another 40 minutes for the food. The food was bland and honestly I could have gotten a better meal at long john silvers. I will not... More

We have to compliment Phillip, our waiter who was attentive, suggestive and extremely knowledgeable about his menu. The food was consistent although the lobster for both of us was overdone and was dry. We couldn't eat it. It didn't spoil the evening though!

In this time another two separate groups arrived also waitng to be seated. When we finally were seated, our waitress was pleasant and attentive.... More

Red Lobster is usually a restaurant I enjoy whenever I am on vacation in the US. This time however I was taken aback by this restaurant. When we entered, apparantly a family in a nearby table had just left and truly left a MESS! That is understandable and out of the control of the staff, BUT they should NOT have... More

Red Lobster is one of our family's favourite restaurants, ever. Every time we go on holiday in the summer, we come to Fort Lauderdale, and Red Lobster is the one restaurant we always look forward to returning to. You enter, and immediately the atmosphere is set: laid-back but sophisticated all at the same time. There is a tank of live... More
