We love dining at this Red Lobster. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I almost always order the Ultimate Feast because I love the crag legs, lobster, shrimp scampi and vegetables. My husband loves their coconut shrimp with their delicious sauce. We both love their appetizers- stuffed mushrooms, mussels, calamari and pizza.
