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

I have been to Red Lobster multiple times and the favorite is the biscuits of course. The food is always consistently good but not great. We went last Saturday and I tried a new dish for me of the Salmon New Orleans which was pretty good. My husband got the mahi mahi and shrimp which both of us felt was... 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

Every time a watch the Red Lobster's commercial on TV, I decide to go there to see if it got better. Every time I do it, I regret my decision. The food is never good, and the price is too high for what you get.

Food was good although the cheesy biscuits continue to shrink in size. Our primary server needed some schooling on providing proper service - she was almost to the point of being obnoxious. Her assistant was very pleasant - Kelly could take some lessons from her!

I went here with my daughter and mother on Thursday the 28th of March. We went for lunch it was early as we had some appointments and this was my last Supper before dental surgury. I was highly disappointed with the service it prompted me to call corporate. I am a very easy going person I plan on tipping a... More

My wife and I really enjoy going here as we got to know some of the staff here. We will miss Sophie as she was the attraction here too. We will continue to go here just maybe a little less now. We need to got a good server and maybe go more.

Our family used to come here 3-4 times a month. We moved out of the area and are now back. Tonight totally disappointed us. We were seated immediately but it took way too long for our server to come to the table. When he did, it was to say he would be right back. By the time he came back,... More
