Weekend get away

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.

My wife and I went out for an evening meal after a long week. We had been here before and NOT impressed. I was hungry for lobster so we decided we would give this place another chance.

It was crab Fest, but the prices were rather high, 25.00 on up for selections. We both ended up getting the 4 course meal. It included, soup, salad, meal and desert for 16.99. Overall was a bargain! It is rather hard to find on the menu, my friend actually pointed it out. The waiter rather hovered over us all night,... More

Stopped in for a visit during a recent trip to the Mayo Clinic. Seated quickly and great service from the wait staff. Food came fast, tasted great, and follow up service was good too. Manager stopped by to make sure we were happy and content. All around a very nice experience.

This Red Lobster is pretty nice, environment wise. I enjoy the decor and layout versus some other RL's I've been to. My complaint this time, February, is that every time the front door opened, cold air rushed into the restaurant even though there were a second set of doors to retain the cold in the entrance area. Very unpleasant to... More

We live 5 minutes away and are always impressed with the wait staff and great food. No matter how busy, once seated the wait staff is there shortly. Food always hot and prepared to perfection. Suggest the shrimp linguini alfredo or the crab linguini alfredo.

Red Lobster has easy access as it is in a shopping mall. Along with good seafood and cheese biscuits.
