Good staff

The waiters at the this are just great and thus is very busy most of the time, the food is like any other Red Lobster, but enjoyed the staff more than the food

Typical Red Lobster. Not bad, not great but consistent with other Red Lobster restaurants. This Red Lobster for some reason, was incredibly slow with both service and kitchen cook time(restaurant was only 50% full). If you're in a hurry, this is not the place to go.

I was having lunch and the service was great. The food there tasted so good. They make good seafood!!! I recommend for you to get a seafood entree.

Due to some scheduling conflicts, we celebrated Mother's Day late this year. Yearning for sea foods, we chose this restaurant as our venue. We noted the major changes in their menu since our last visit of this restaurant about 2 years ago. We ordered Coconut Shrimps for our appetizer and 2 Trio Combination dishes (lobster, salmon and shrimps) for our... More

We asked my son where he wanted to celebrate his 16th birthday dinner and he said "Red Lobster." We had been there many times over the past 10-15 years and figured that it was a good idea. What we forgot was the poor service we receive when we are there. (Maybe that's why we didn't go more than 2x per... More

Enticed by their frequent TV ads for their Lobsterfest, thought I'd try this place again. The prices for lobster meals were pricey, although the biscuits and side dishes were part of the deal. Service was almost non-existent. Took someone almost 15 minutes to even approach me to take the order. I liked the biscuits most of all. The lobster, mashed... More

The host was pleasant. Waiter took our order and forgot to bring lemons with water, took him over 10 minutes to bring them. Our party ordered: Parmesan tilapia, could not eat and sent it pack, tasted like it had freezer burn or had absorbed other favors from sitting in fridge too long. Lobster tacos, these were actually pretty good. Shrimp... More

Hadn't been to a Red Lobster in years, so I decided to try it - especially induced with a $3 coupon. The ambiance was fine, and the host was pleasant. It went downhill from there. The server appeared tired, forgot to bring lemon with the water as requested, etc. The biscuits were very good - but the lunch dishes were... More

Had the best waitress, Ann. I hadn't been here in years. She opened the menu and described what the specials were among other things. Food was great.
