I had a bit of a problem with my service and the food. The manager came out and spoke with us and offered to do anything we wanted to make our experience a good one. We told him that it was not necessary and his concern was more important than a free meal or anything else. He knew his business... More

I am not a Red Lobster fan friend but my friend just loves it. I do enjoy the biscuits. I ordered the catfish and I felt like it was just ok. I have had much better. The French fries were bland and limp. Now that being said I do not eat any other seafood but fish so I have not... More

We noticed a great improvement in this restaurant since we ate here four months ago. They have a new menu and their dishes have improved. Spicy shrimp, New England clam chowder, shrimp scampi, fried flounder sandwich, lobster stuffed mushroom, and salmon were all very good. The new manager apologized for replacing pollack with flounder and, in fact, the sandwich tasted... More

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.

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!
