Lobster on a cold night

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... read more

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

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.

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.
