The seafood is okay, the biscuits are marvelous!! The one time I went in by myself, it took forever to get service, and the service was desultory. Among wait staff, there's a belief that single women make poor tippers, so don't put much energy into them. I virtually always tip at 20+%, until I get service like I got here.... More

Firstly let me say I am a seafood lover and have had many great meals at a number of Red Lobsters over the past 25 years but this is now my third horrendous experience at the Red Lobster on 34 St. N, St Petersburg, Florida. This time my wife and I both selected "Fish and Chips" as it is a... More

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at the Red Lobster in st. Petersburg, fl. It was tasty ... Portions were quite adequate and fairly reasonably priced. The host was more than friendly upon our arrival. Our server, Justin, was attentive, accommodating ensuring we were more than pleased with our meal. Definitely will visit again! Thanks!

Went on Friday night. As busy as any Red Lobster. This one "represents" well. Good food at reasonable prices, with friendly and competent servers. Their servers may be their strongest point. They are congenial and get to know regulars. Just be prepared to take your time. Properly cooked foods cannot be rushed.

My general reaction is that chain restaurants are all the same, but I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the Red Lobster in St. Petersburg. We came here because it is right next door to our auto center, and was a good way to spend an hour while waiting for the car to be serviced. We were... More

I ordered the Admirals feast, it seemed like it sat for a while before being brought to me, wasn't very hot and breading was soft. Service was okay but not great. I've had better meals at other Red Lobsters.

Service excellent. The "biscuits" (cheese bread rolls) were delicious. The starters were all deep fried with peculiar dips. Quite unpleasant. The mains- lobster, steak, maple chicken, salmon, prawns - all lovely. Perfectly cooked with nice fresh salads and fries. Would go back and miss out the starters (we couldn't eat it all anyway!)

Their seafood is always so fresh and tasty. I love the all you can eat shrimp, when available. I try each kind, but my favorite is the fried shrimp. Of course, their rolls are the best.

We were on vacation from Connecticut so am familiar with the Red Lobster chain. This was a great experience. Although we arrived about 5pm it did start to get crowded, however we were seated as soon as we walked through the door. The menu has been updated somewhat, however still many choices to choose from. The food and the server... More
