Short wait (off peak hours). Food was rather expensive for a sit-down restaurant, but we knew that going in. Service friendly and fast. Food was tasty, but not exactly fresh. But then this is (a) a chain restaurant and (b) about 500 miles from the ocean. Take what you can get. Deep fried veggies with the calamari were good, but... More

Red Lobster is always a good choice, but when I saw the sign on the highway for our exit, I was thrilled. This is the first time that I saw brussel sprouts and my husband ordered them. They were roasted or grilled and absolutely mouth-watering if you are a brussel sprout fan. I had a Berry Mango Daiquiri and it... More

Had to take part of the endless shrimp so it was me and my grandson up to the task as we both love shrimp. While my grandson stayed with the hand-breaded shrimp, I opted for several types and was intrigued by the new Pineapple Habanero Shrimp. Loved the combination of the sweet followed by the heat. Nice touch. Teriyaki shrimp... More

Thought we would try the fish and lobster out here. Disappointed. Long wait for food on a Sunday evening and then when it came it was only just warm. Children's meals, mixed lobster platers and lobster pizza ordered. It took a while. Not sure I would go back with all the other options in town that are not a chain.... More

Lunch 07/31/2015. Wonderful experience! It looked as though the restaurant had been remodeled, at least the front section that we were in. Very clean and spacious. There were four of us and we were seated in one of the round booths. Our waiter was outstanding (I wish I could remember his name). Professional, personable and very attentive. The food was... More

We had good service from our waitress, Sarah. We really only had 2 problems. First, the place is hard to find as you really could not see it from Nicholasville Rd. and the only sign is on the building itself (that I could see). Second, my husband's green beans didn't taste good-he described it as moldy. However, his steak and... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. The food was great, the waitress was very friendly and service was prompt. She even wrote on our bill Happy Anniversary.

My husband and I travel extensively for business. He took me to Red Lobster on Friday night before Mother's Day for an early Mother's Day dinner. I'm sad that I cannot recall our server's name, as he was especially wonderful. The food was great, in addition to being plentiful. Thanks, Red Lobster, Lexington!
