Better than I expected

Haven't been to Red Lobster for probably a decade. Food was actually pretty good. Went for Lobster Fest and was satisfied. Wasn't the best meal I ever had, but it was way better than I expected. Hostess definitely forgot about us and it took 20 minutes to get a drink, but our server Richie was... read more

The Red Lobster has really improved on there food the last few years. My food tasted fine. They are consistent. However, our server was so horrid she was even laughing at it. No one got their water refilled, she had no clue what anyone ordered, someone paid with a credit card and she forgot to bring it back, another paid... More

We stopped in for their endless shrimp it was terrible. Yes the shrimp is endless if you placed them in line it would take 50 to go across the plate. Besides they were tasteless if it weren't for the sauces they tasted like salty mush. Maybe the new owners of this chain will understand the need for major changes but... More

Red Lobster has been around for quite a while, but i have found that this location is consistently very good. The menu was updated sometime in 2014 and features many new items. I had the Fish Tacos which were great. The service was very good as well.

Went to red lobster for the endless shrimp promotion. I really enjoyed it last year when I went. This time you could only order one type of shrimp at a time after your first entrée of three types. The service of getting you more shrimp was so slow that I SOMETIMES FORGOT WHAT I ORDERED. If this is going to... More

My food was terrible. The service was poor too. The greeter wasn't very friendly and another employee gave me an attitude when I asked a question.

My visit was Mon & it is now Wed. I wasn't going to write this complaint but after thinking it over the last two days I am still deeply bothered by my terrible experience at your restaurant. First, we were not ID when we ordered our Top Shelf LIT's, but worse that both our expensive drinks took 10min to get... More
