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...

While in Lexington for some shopping my Wife and I tried the Hamburg Red Lobster for a late lunch. If was fortunate for me that the Lobster Fest was going on although my wife is not much of a seafood fan. I got the dueling lobster tails and they were great! My wife even though she is not much on... More

My husband and I stopped in at Red Lobster on our way to see Kentucky play ball at Rupp Arena. The food and service was excellent. I got the snow crab legs which came in a domed, covered serving bowl. Boy does that make a difference in keeping the steam in and the crab legs hot. The Red Lobster in... More

Went here for a business luncheon. No complaints from me. Good food. Fast friendly service. Shrimp Scampi is to die for. I was surprised it wasn't a lot busier than it was. If Obama, the Democrats, and their compliant little media empire who cover for them REALLY think we are in some kind of economic recovery, they are living in... More

Pro: The wait was less than advertised. Con: Asked for butter with rolls/biscuits- never was provided. The fish and chips meal which my wife had was actually below average. I did not sample, but I could see that the fish was dry. The portion size was smallish. I had a shrimp/crab combo... but the presentation was a bit off-putting. The... More

I've always enjoyed the food here, although the prices are moderate to high. The building has been there for a long time -- since the 1980's or earlier. It isn't really run down but could use some work. A few of their staff members have worked there for 25+ years, which says the company must treat them well.
