Great menu

They have a great menu selection and are always changing it up. Their garlic biscuits are wonderful. we've been there many times and tried several different items and haven't found anything that we didn't like. They are a little over-priced but that's my only complaint. The service has always... read more

The food was excellent, and I appreciated that they serve wine. I recommend any shrimp dish, and my husband always gets a combination platter.

We ordered the Seaside shrimp trio, the shrimp was pretty bland, could not taste any garlic in the scampi, could not eat the shrimp linguini, but my french fries were good. We also ordered the baked lobster Alfredo with salmon, which was pretty good. And we order two if the main lobster tail, which was really good, actually awesome, but... More

My husband and I ate here on 3/17/2015. I had 2 lobster punch specialty drinks. They were delicious. I also had the Ultimate Feast. That too was delicious. The staff was awesome, very courteous. They also brought me a free brownie, a scoop of ice cream with a candle & sang "Happy Birthday", since that's what we were there for.... More

Chose to eat at Red Lobster since we knew the restaurant. It had pretty décor but the food was just fair at best. Many other places in the area we wished we'd tried. Good service. Just OK.

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
