I keep coming back

A bit pricier than most chains, with many entrees in the $20-$30 range, I always seem to have an enjoyable dining experience at Red Lobster. Unlike other chains, the service here seems to be consistently good. I also enjoy their varied and wide menu; today I tried the Salmon New Orleans which was... read more

We stopped for lunch and it was not crowded. Hubby ordered Chicken Alfredo that generous but just ok. I ordered Grilled Chicken with a Skewer of Grilled Shrimp and rice pilaf. The pilaf was the best part of the dish. The chicken and shrimp were thawed from a frozen state and I don't believe they ever saw a 'wood grill'.... More

My family and I eat at the Red Lobster in Oakdale. March 13,2015 there was 5 in our party that evening. We enjoyed the lobster feast and so many cheese biscuits that there was no room for desert. Everything was so fresh and steaming hot it was hard to finish our meals. The wait staff were so eager to keep... More

Went out to celebrate my wife's birthday and her friend's birthday. When we mentioned this it seemed there was no acknowledgement of this occasion. Yet, later, we saw the staff singing happy birthday to another table. The service was slow, we had to ask for our waters to be filled often and my friend had to constantly ask for his... More

The preparation of the food is fine and the service is very good. The relation between price and quality is not right, too pricy! Wine list is average.

Stopped here with my husband before heading back home to Duluth. He had breaded shrimp, which he liked and my burger and green beans were very good--very fresh tasting. The atmosphere was really nice and our server was sweet... She even gave us extra biscuits to bring home for the kids! :)

Like the shrimp the best........and being wood grilled lends a slightly little better flavor, I think!

I took my family to Red Lobster in Woodbury (Oakdale for real I guess) this past Saturday, and wow! what a mess this place is. First off, I didn't expect the kind of excellence that one would expect of a five- or even four-star restaurant, but I was still massively disappointed. Second, I am a foodie. And a "home-cooking" chef.... More

I love shrimp and Red Lobster has by far the best shrimp I've had. There "Walts shrimp dinner" is the bar far the best. Tender and juicy. GREAT service to go along with a great meal.
