Not what is used to be.

We have been eating at Red Lobster for years and have always enjoyed going there. In the past couple of years it seems the price increases with almost every visit and there are times when the food is simply not up to par. We have found we get consistently good at other locations so this... read more

We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Winter Haven for 2 nights. Red Lobster is located literally in the Hampton Inn's front yard and very convenient to walk to dinner. Not being overly hungry, we requested a table in the bar area. Our server was pleasant, helpful and timely. We ended up ordering a drink and an appetizer apiece and... More

I've eaten at this restaurant over the years and the last few visits have not been up to par. The appetizer during our last trip was very good but the main course was lacking in flavor. Service was very friendly.

My wife's 62nd Birthday and she wanted the " All you can Eat Shrimp" meal. She wolf down 63 shrimp but the shrimp won in the end. They were delicious, staff was friendly, staff also sang Happy Birthday to her, were able to bring our own cake in. Wonderful place, Well worth the trip!

Insipid, slow, unfriendly service. Even if the food was good, won't repeat! YES, One server DO make a difference in a restaurant. Either she wins you as a customer or she makes the restaurant loose one forever. RL Winter Haven just lost two.

Red lobster in winter haven has gone down hill for the past two years. My husband and I tried it again last weekend and we were BEYOND DISAPOINTED. Everything tastes pre frozen. Nothing started fresh not even the veggies which was an up charge of 3.95 for asparagus that was nasty! Then the best thing is all from the whole... More

The best deals are their lunch special. Get to pick to items and two sides. The service is good and food is good. I feel that it is clean and a safe choice.

We went on a Thursday evening and didn't expect a wait, but waited for 45 minutes to be seated (and before you wonder: there were 4 of us). Our waitress was a most generically dull lady who disappeared for 20 to 25 minutes at a time. We ended up asking passing waitresses for what we needed (extra plates and crab... More

I went with my boyfriend just for dinner, the young lady taking our order was very sweet and polite. The food wasn't all was made out to be. We both ordered the Crab Lover's Dream. The king crab legs weren't warm and were a bit dry. The crab linguine Alfredo was very good. The environment was quaint and comfortable. I... More
