Improved a lot

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... read more

We came here for lunch. I had the salmon and my wife had the fried shrimp. My wifes fried shrimp was luke warm and greasy, she figured the greas was not hot enough when they fried it. My salmon was ok but a little on the dry side. Waitress was very nice and the salad and biscuits were good. We... More

Okay, so I'm particular about my fish since I've lived on the east coast. Of the many times I've eaten at Red Lobster not once has the fish not been overcooked. Maybe it's a Midwest thing but this restaurant would never make it in New England. I am glad that they redid the interior as it was looking pretty worn.

We stopped while passing through the area. We were seated quickly & our server was always making sure our drinks were filled & had everything we needed. The food was great. The servers were polite. If I was from the area I would definitely go back.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant last December and were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the service was. Our server was pleasant, friendly, and attentive. She noticed that I was not eating much of my grilled salmon that I ordered and questioned me if everything tasted okay? I told her that it didn't quite taste right to... More

We love to go to Red Lobster, and the one in Cape is the closest to us. We go on a regular basis. The food is always fantastic. The employees are always awesome.

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

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
