All you can eat shrimp

Nice place, friendly staff and smart enough to know when they bring you your order to ask if you'd like to get another. This beats waiting till you finish and then place your order

On Saturday 12-12-15 our friends, my wife and I went to this Red Lobster on Thompson Street since we haven’t been here in about a year. This was one of the WORST nights out I’ve ever had. We will start with how they lost our reservations for 6pm and it went downhill from there. After waiting sometime to place our... More

We ate here for lunch on a Saturday. Our server was very attentive - especially with drink refills (which I greatly appreciate). Our salads and slaw were good and of course the biscuits are great. We all had fried shrimp and we all agreed that it was pretty much the same quality you'd get at home cooking frozen fried shrimp... More

We stopped at Red Lobster after a long day of traveling. It was Lobster Fest and we had a great meal. I can't say enough about the friendly staff here. Everyone asked how we were doing and made sure we had everything we needed. The manager escorted us to the door and held the door for us when we left!... More

If your in the mood for a reasonably priced and tasty burger this is the place, and who wouldn't like the bottomless steak fries. It was a very satisfying first experience.

Red Lobster continues to do an excellent job. Most of the restaurants have been completely remodeled and are very upscale. The quality of the food remains high. I love the parmesan crusted tilapia. My wife and I love to get a small party platter of shrimp to go and a baked potato and make that our dinner. The staff is... More

We went to Red Lobster for a birthday celebration. There war 10 of us and we were seated at a nice table set. I had the surf and turf which was a very tender steak and lobster tail, Excellent. Of course you have to try the cheesy buns that they surge with the meals, a red lobster signature. The cast... More

When you are in an area that does not have many restaurants that specialize in seafood, I have found the Red Lobster to be adequate. However, I prefer to go to seafood restaurants that are near the oceans of the world and are known for great seafood.

Standard Red Lobster. If you have gone to one, this one is the same. Had good service and good food.
