I used to love Red Lobster twenty years ago, but the last time I went the menu and atmosphere just seemed tired to me. Both need an update and a kick in the pants!

Walts favorite shrimp soggy and bordering on tasteless. Caesar salad was swimming in dressing and lettuce was harsh. Service was OK Truly this was on a list of restaurants I frequently visit but value and quality have steadily decreased the last few visits. Shape up or "ship-out".

This is one of the better Red Lobsters we have visited. The wait staff is very friendly. I have allergies to wheat and though they do have an allergy menu, they do not offer much. What they did have was very good.

We met several friends who all had some form of crab fest dish. None of us liked Shrimp Scampi and we were allowed to substitute for that. Rolls and baked potatoes were outstanding as usual. Salads were good and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their crab based meals. We ate in the bar. This restaurant was very nicely decorated with lots of... More

My family and I visited this restaurant early dinner during crabfest recently. We ordered a crab dip appetizer that was a bit fishy. I ordered sirloin with crab topping and it was the same dish as the dip!! To top it off, the food was not that great. Our waiter and the environment were both excellent, however sadly we won't...

I liked the fact that they let us in ten minutes before closing and served us well. The restaurant was close to hotels and we enjoyed the area. Lexington is a very nice area that we want to return to and spend a few days.

We do not go out to eat often, but when we do we look for a place that combines good food and a comfortable atmosphere with excellent service. This Red Lobster does that with enthusiasm! Food is food, seafood is more exacting. Our server, Malika, not only took care of our needs but also went out of her way to... More

Wonderful service, great food, nice atmosphere. Pleasant experience after a long cross country drive. We will definitely return during our next trip.Try the Coconut Shrimp. It is awesome even if you don't like coconut. They serve it with Pina Colada sauce which unto itself is beyond delicious. Spoke with the young manager to compliment him on his operation. He was...
