I generally like Red Lobster, but the meals I have had at this one have been just ok. The food seems either bland or over seasoned depending on what you order, and nothing seems consistent. They pride themselves on "Fresh Catch", but obviously everything has been frozen and reheated (what can we expect in the middle of the country though?)... More

Dinner at Red Lobster in Cape Girardeau was enjoyable and reasonably priced. The food was well prepared and tasty! I had the "Ultimate a Feast", a sirloin steak and lobster tail. Food was good but service was less than perfect. We were seated promptly but it was too long before our drink orders were taken and then longer to get... More

We enjoyed a lunch at this Red Lobster on a Saturday at noon. My husband ordered the choose two, being shrimp scampi. I ordered the wood grill shrimp luncheon portion. There were two skewers full of shrimp and I was allowed to change one side dish. This restaurant is very good at allowing personal preferences. We were seated in a... More

We usually go to this restaurant when we are in Cape. Always enjoy it, but this time it was the best we have ever had. The food was all fresh and hot. Great portion sizes and service was wonderful. We will go back again and again to this Red Lobster.

Thanks for making my special meal VERY SPECIAL!!!...ON POINT FRIENDLY service with perfect attention to my picky tastings...Chain restaurants get a bad rep but I LOVE THIS PLACE because it feels like a personally owned restaurant with managers that care enough to maintain a staff that is of high quality!

I wrote a review in 2011, and they have improved in service, food and management. They could still learn from the Paducah Red Lobster, it's a 5-star / excellent restaurant, all the way. And they certainly serve better food than the casino!

If you want a quick and good lunch then Red Lobster is the place, especially if you want seafood! It is now non-smoking all over which is a plus for some people. Service was excellent, we were there about 45 min. for lunch.

We stayed in the Auburn Place Hotel and Suites across the street. We had been driving for 7-8 hours and needed dinner. We walked across the parking lot of the Hotel to the Red Lobster. The waiter was Super, Heather. The food was good the service was outstanding. We noticed that everyone of the employees looked like they enjoyed working... More

We were very pleased with the food and the service. Not wanting a full meal, I ordered the appetizer sampler for an entree, and, not only was it delicious, but it was still more than I could eat. Our "seafood expert" was great....gave us good advice, checked on us often, made sure we were happy, and was cheerful and seemed... More
