Not so good

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.

The pictures of their food look great, the food itself leaves a lot to be desired. My "Admiral's Feast" was about the worst meal I've eaten in many years. My dining companions were OK with their meals, but they ate chicken.

My husband and I went here one random afternoon, as we had never dined here. It just so happened to be during their endless shrimp sale. The parmasean crusted shrimp is addictive, also the grilled selections are very good as well. Service was great, we had an excellent waiter. Best strawberry lemonade I had ever had, They have really good... More
