ell I tell you what. Our Mother called Red Lobster and asked about come and buying some gift cards for her family members at Christmas time. They verbally represented that for every $50 spent she would receive a $10 gift card. So then she went to the Red Lobster and bought over $600 in gift cards and even when she... More

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. GLAD WE DID....The service was wonderful -- food outstanding. The manager stopped by to see how everything was. Our server ( Chica) was... More

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

Red Lobster in Rochester is a great place to dine after a shopping spree as it is adjacent to Apache Mall. The the lobster tail I ordered was absolutely fresh and cooked to perfection. The dessert was a freshly baked soft cookie served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Every member of the staff had a smile on her/his... 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.

I have never been inside a red lobster, so, we bravely tried it. This is an expensive lower class treat. It's way too salty, the lobster is tough and rubbery, and the rolls (or whatever they are called) are hard to swallow due to it being extremely salty and sticky. The bill wasn't too pleasing to the stomach either, given... More

We came in for lunch today, after a rough previous encounter at another restaurant , wouldn't you know our luck would have us arrive on a day when this Rochester Red Lobster store just got hammered, with a huge lunch crowd and we sort of got lost in the shuffle. Nicole was our server and she was great. She kept... More
