I've always liked Red Lobster

Food is very good just like every other Red Lobster. Location not great. Cheddar Bay Biscuits are the BOMB! It used to take forever to get a seat, but the last few times we've been we were seated right away. No negative effect on service or food quality though.

Excellent shrimp dinner and crab chowder! Service was top-notch, and server was quick to fetch drinks and our appetizers. Our meals were served hot and were very delicious. While we eat here often this was our best service ever.

They allow you to order from the lunch menu even though it is after the normal lunch hours. I enjoy the Sailor's Platter-- just enough food and it's a very good mixture of items. Wait staff was pleasant.

Food was great but serving time was very slow and they weren't that busy for the 4th of July. Had the new shrimp tacos which were delicious but spicy for me which I'm sensitive to spicy foods; despite the waiters comment of them not being spicy.😛

First let me say that I am not a heavy drinker so when there is alcohol in my drinks, I can definately taste it. We ordered a mojito and a berry mango daqarui which were supposed to have rum in them but very obviously didn't. This is not the first time I've had this problem at this location. For the... More

Server did a good job. Food came out slow and was not as hot as it could have been. It was not busy but had shortage of servers. Had a hard time getting the bill to pay for meal. Just does not seem the same anymore.

My husband took me to Red Lobster on my 67th birthday because I didn't want to get fancy (like we always do) and wanted a lobster dinner. For the price you can't beat the lobster, especially during Lobster Feast). The waiter was exceptional and most likely could make a lot more in tips working at a higher end restaurant, but... More

First let me say that we had a very sweet waiter. Okay now that that's said... first wrong salad dressing...stuffed mushrooms okay... then I had the lobster special with the tails, shrimp and oysters and pasta...they were accommodating in swapping oysters for scallops but twice I had to send it back because the scallops weren't cooked. The third time they... More
