Fast, friendly service

Although the food was pretty typical of the chain, the service put it above average. The hostess immediately asked us if we had a time constraint for lunch, which we happened to have, and informed our server so they could make sure we made it out on time.

The wait staff were the nicest people ever! The food is always wonderful! We had the stuffed mushrooms for appetizers....so awesome! I had the peach tea which was cool and refreshing. My husband had the admirals feast and it was too much for him to eat. I had the shrimp feast and it was also too much food. The biscuits... More

My dad chose this restaurant for Father's Day, as we have found this place to have great service and great food. With it having been newly built, it is a gorgeous building, inside and out. Love the nautical paintings and details. They have very fast and friendly service, and obviously I have mentioned the food! I would recommend the shrimp... More

Food is pretty much the same quality as other Red Lobster Restaurants around the country. I enjoyed the fish and chips and the atmosphere of being in a restaurant versus hospital cafeteria.

Went to this restaurant for a birthday celebration. I ordered raw oysters and steamed mussels. Absolutely delicious. Also, I highly recommend the margaritas with Grand Marnier on the side. The service was excellent.

We decided to enjoy a nice supper out in Rochester MN. We had been traveling for a student VIP day at Univ of MN Rochester. We tried the sampler appetizer platter and the coconut shrimp was amazing. The biscuits they bring you were to die for and we could have probably easily gotten full off of those. I ordered the... More

Our waitress was very attentive, she knew we were in a bit of a rush so she got our meal out to us quickly. The food was great, my son loves crab legs and he said they were some of the best he's ever had! Of course the biscuits were delicious - and plentiful. Manager made sure we were satisfied... More

I took my husband to dinner for his birthday (a day late) Feb 27, 2015. We arrived at about 7:45 and were told it was around a 45 minute wait. (There were people everywhere). Being a Friday and around dinner time we understood so went to have a drink in the bar. The drinks were good and the bartender very... More

Came up from Decorah, IA trout fishing. Great service as I have come to expect with Red Lobster. Same great food we also had crab legs and calamari with veggies.
