This is one of the smaller Red Lobster's and as a result, there is often a wait to be seated. The bar area holds about 4-5 people tops. The food...as always at Red Lobster....is good! Gotta love those Cheddar Bay biscuits!

We kept going to the bar because the service is so good. This is an exceptional Red Lobster. The manager, Anna, visited with us at every visit. They were remodeling but we still had great service and great food. Plus they have Glen Fiddich and other top shelf liquors. I highly recommend this well run store.

I have been here many times and I can honestly say that I never had a bad experience here. The service is very good and the wait staff is highly hospitable. The food quality is top notch. You get what you pay for here. It's costs some to eat here but for seafood in the area, it's the best pick.

My wife and I have over the years eaten at many Red Lobsters through out the USA, On Friday night we ate at the Salina KS Red Lobster- it was fantastic. On Monday night we decided to eat at the Marion IL RL. We shared an Appettisor, the centre of which was cold. It had obviously not been fully re-heated... More

I've tried at least a dozen different RL's through the years, with mixed results. This one, however, was probably the worst. We did have the traditional long wait for a table, and no wonder why. The salmon was very good, but the fried fillet of miscellaneous fish was greasy and bland. The ceasars salad was OK, but the tried &... More

Upon waiting for our table (which we had a 45 minute wait), there was a scuffle, from what we perceived as a 'line jump con'. A woman came in a door, and waited a few minutes, then went to the front greeter, and explained that they had been here an hour, and had not been given a device to let... More

This is your typical red lobster. I travel a lot and haven't ate here in a while. The food and the service is good. But the price makes it almost not worth it

Eating alone is never fun, but the host was very welcoming and the server was polite and charming. Service was better than I would have ever expected.
