The food here is consistently good. Sometimes it can taste a little salty, but not enough to send it back. I t can be super busy around lunch time so we try to go at off times. They have wonderful specials and the menu is extensive. If you like, you can pick a lobster.

Generally stay away from chains, but have to admit was very surprised by the qualify at Red Lobster. Both the food and the service were excellent. Ordered just plain salmon grilled and it was perfect. Do not eat many carbs so the waiter offered 2 helpings of veggies. And the veggies were done perfectly since I do not like them... More

Out for dinner with family, They seat us in the worse seat in the bar area. Mgt, get rid of that table in the corner by the lobster tank. Place wasn't crowded, and I didnt ask for the bar area. Anyway, food was good, artichoke dip with chips wasnt. Cole slaw was horrible, too much spice, Plus the end of... More

Considering it is a chain, the food and service was not bad at all. When I get the urge for lobster or crab, I go there.

We had our annual Christmas Party here at Red Lobster. Every trip to this restaurant is enjoyable. Our group enjoyed their meals which were prepared by expert chief's. Music was at a low level which is a big plus for conversation. The Manager visited our table a few times to check on our progress. Waitstaff was very courteous and efficient.... More

The wait staff, for the most part, is good as is the menu variety. In the past, whenever I ordered the crab legs, they were ALWAYS over cooked and the meat comes out in shreds. So I stopped ordering them. The salad is average, but the clam chowder was excellent! The food portions are average and always seems to be... More

The new menu is too big and has the customer jumping all over the place. The manhattan clam chowder was very good. We had the lobster stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer which were tasty, but too buttery. The parmesan encrusted talipia was good, but again drowning in butter. Service was prompt and at 5:30 there was no waiting for a... More
