Disappointed

As it is crabfest I ordered the crab cake dinner. On the menu the looked very appealing. However when they came they were very small and falling apart. When we were seated we had no utensils or napkins. When the server brought them, she just put them on the table in a pile on the bread plates... read more

It's Red Lobster. You know what the food is like since it is a brand standard chain. The service was good, and the wait staff were very nice.

Come in for lunch or dinner. About the most consistent sea food you will find anywhere. The menue changes every so often, with new entry' s and they still keep the old favorites. They also offer food for non seafood people. No hush puppies though. I do not know why they don't any more, the bread rolls are ok But... More

Food was great. Service sucked. We have eaten here several times. So far the service has been less than good. We waited a lot and our drink glasses were sitting empty a lot.

This Red Lobber can be one of the best or a average restaurant. Usually it's pretty darn good. But other time service was below what I would expect

We visited the Danville Red Lobster last night. The service was fine. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. However I was very disappointed with my shrimp. I ordered the Walt's favorite which I usually enjoy. The shrimp was a little overdone. But it seemed that there was very little shrimp under the breading. It was very tough. I don't know... More

We visited this restaurant on Tues, Sept.23, 2014. The greeter was extremely helpful as my mom was on a walker. Once seated, we waited over 10 min. for any kind of service. When our food finally came, my shrimp tacos and rice were cold. The biscuits had no flavor. It was close to 20min. to receive our check after we... More

First it was a long wait to see our server. Then took him 10 minutes to bring our drinks. The salad my wife had was brown and wilted (see photo proof). Server however was very polite and soft spoken. Dinners we good but seemed a little off from the normal. Just not a 40 dollar dinner value tonight.

Although we had called ahead about our large group and we were seated quickly, it took a while for the waitstaff to figure out who was serving us. After a very slow start, the servers did a great job and the salmon entree was excellent.
