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.

A 45 minute wait for a ridiculously early dinner on a Saturday afternoon, sorry I'll dine elsewhere.

The server I had was awesome. He was very personable and put up with my friend who wouldn't stop talking. The food was very good.

I don't normally eat at Red Lobster, and today I realized that's probably for the best. While I have no complaints directed toward the wait times or sea food, my server 'Pat' was quite insufferable. I was in no way rude to him the whole time I was there, yet he for whatever reason started ignoring me completely even after... More

Even though I see that this restaurant has a new menu since I ate there, I would not recommend it for those whose do not eat shellfish. While my lunch companions has ample portions which they enjoyed, I found that the restaurant had little to offer those who did not eat shellfish. Even the non-seafood entrees had sauces of shellfish.... More
