Always good in every way.

I know the salads will be served with fresh lettuce on chilled plates, the delicious Cheddar Bay biscuits will be hot and plentiful, and the entrees are served as ordered. I have enjoyed everything on the menu that I have tried. The service is another reason to eat here - the servers are... read more

Can never go wrong with this restaurant. Great food. Employees were friendly. Great atmosphere. Nice easy location to find. Situated by the mall and Walmart.

Came here on a Friday evening; the place was busy but the staff seemed to be handling things just fine. Very short wait for our food; hot, fresh, and flavorful! It got a bit noisy with all the families there but that's to be expected on a busy night...great experience overall!

The nearest Red Lobster restaurant is 2 hours away in either direction from where we live, but if it's Red Lobster we're hankering for...it's always this one in Mankato. Many Red Lobster restaurants have been a disappointment, but never this one. We've never had a bad dining experience here. Quite the opposite. We love every entree that we've tried and... More

My wife and I have been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years, and we have never had a bad plate! Always great! In the restaurant for for takeout, food has always been great. The only downside of this restaurant is that they don't take reservations, which is too bad, because it can get very crowded sometimes.

The food was very good. Portion sizes were average. The waitress was great, very attentive especially for how busy it was. The prices were average but the choices on the menu were many.

I've eaten at this facility on several past occaisions so I pretty much knew what I was getting. I felt the service was excellent on this visit. While my entree was on the warm side it was not steaming hot but the taste was still good. Overall, my meal was what I expected from a chain restaurant...good in quality but... More

After asking Waiter, Brian T about the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, he suggested to try it. I thought it was great. If you do not like all the heavily Garlic laced food, this is the one to try. A touch of Honey Sweet BBQ sauce on top of the Bacon gives it a different taste for Shrimp. I will eat it... More

My husband loves seafood and I am ok with it. They have such a selection available here that it doesn't matter what your preference is, you'll still be happy--and we were!
