Delicious food and great service. The lobster was lovely and the scallops tender. Their entree rolls are delicious and we would definitely go back.

Each time I go (usually quarterly) I find a good reception, courteous seating, great service and WONDERFUL food! I usually go for oysters on the half-shell, or shrimp (created some type of way), but any of the entrees, sides, or selections in general have come to the table in a timely fashion, with a smile (on their face AND mine!)....

Stopped by for an early dinner and enjoyed coconut shrimp and a fish sandwhich. Although they are having the crab special, we decided on a smaller meal. The waitress was courteous and efficient. The coconut shrimp were cooked to perfection: not overdone as is sometimes the case in some restaurants. Atmosphere good, clean restrooms, refills of beverages and bread as... More

It's not often that I write a bad review. How ever this has been one of the worst chains I've visited in some time. Not only was the fish and scallops frozen the business tried to put on airs as if it was freshly caught. It will be hard for me to return to this establishment once again. The only... More

We took the entire family out to the red lobster in Gainesville. Darden restaurants are very professional, with thousands of man hours of experience behind them. I have high expectations. The floor staff appear to be well trained. We all enjoy the coconut shrimp, but the other items were not as tasty. Both young children became violently ill within minutes... More

We ate here after seven hours of driving and it was definitely worth our wait. Eric out server was really attentive, we never had to ask for refills or anything! The food was great, we both had specials he had the sirloin topped with lobster and I had the stuffed Tilipia. Both were delicious! We have been to several different... More

Always good food (for a chain), wait staff is well trained. I believe the fact that this restaurant is always full is a sign that they are here to stay. Gainesville loves its Red Lobster.

Well, you probably can in Maine, but in NE Georgia, this is as good as lobster gets. Five of us in the party, and we each got one of the Lobsterfest specials. Everyone was very happy with their meal, and we all took home leftovers for more meals. Yum!!

Good seafood at reasonable prices. Didn't have time to research local places to eat so we went to a tried and true place and was not disappointed. It was all you can eat shrimp and we enjoyed all the different types offered
