I always enjoy seeing the families visiting Red Lobster, many for celebrations or special nights out. The food is predictably decent though not great. Some important improvements of late: there are more healthier options. Best of all are the brussel sprouts as a side dish - really delicious. Mine disappeared before I'd hardly started my shrimp!

Mom and I choose the 4 course feast, soup, salad, entree, and dessert. Andie, our waitress was very helpful. Of course the biscuits lived up to their full glory. Potato Soup, Tossed Salad, Tilapia, Cheesecake. We both had the same thing, and we both truly enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent, food hot, and the restaurant was quiet and clean.... More

We have a Red Lobster in our town but don't go there; it's not clean and the Staff treats customers like cattle as they are always busy. We find the food there to be too salty and greasy. This Red Lobster far surpassed what we expected. We were on our way up to Mt. Pleasant and just got off of... More

We have had some rather good seafood at Red Lobster restaurants during the past year, so we headed to the Frandor location for a seafood dinner. This restaurant often puts discount coupons in the Sunday newspaper, so it is not uncommon to find a line and a wait on weekend evenings. We got there at 6:30 on a Sunday evening,... More

We hadn't been to this Red Lobster in a while because, frankly, it was smelly and getting a little "tired". We tried it again last night and were pleasantly surprised. The menu includes most of the old favorites and a few new items. I tried the tilapia tacos and they were great - 3 large tacos with lots of fish,... More

I have a group of friends that every so often we meet at Red Lobster for lunch. At first I thought, Red Lobster for lunch? Then I went and love it. They have some great lunch items, smaller portions and the side salad is even filling. Who doesn't love the biscuits there? The staff are always very nice, it doesn't... More

We go here a couple of times a year when we have friends from out of town. I love the Scampi and my husband usually get the flounder. When they have the ShrimpFest, we make it a point to come here. Staff, Servers and the Entry Team are awesome. Friendly service, great food, and decent prices. Can't go wrong if... More

The restaurant has been redone and it is now a very trendy dining experience. Food is great and served artistically. The top notch updates create a more intimate atmosphere for family, friends and/or couples. Varied menu selections. Good pricing.

Shrimp, shrimp, shrimp... was the reason why I chose this restaurant to visit. I was pleasantly surprised by the service and had to make mention of it to the manager. The staff was amazing and worked together to make sure that it was a team effort. There were no dirty dishes on the table for long. Service impeccable. The shrimp... More
