A Lunchtime Favorite

I think that Red Lobster always does a good job in customer service and I've rarely had a problem. This Salem Red Lobster was no different, thankfully. We were seated quickly for lunch and our waitress was efficient. We had soup/salad and soup/sandwich combinations, along with a Lunch trio, all of... read more

Food was great! The wait staff was pleasant and very attentive. Even though this is a chain, it was a great experience.

Their biscuits are always amazingly good.

We stopped at Red Lobster for a quick, late, light lunch. It was 3 pm when we arrived and 3:07 when seated. The dinner menu started at 3 pm. 3 pm is a bit early for dinner. We asked if we could order something from the lunch menu and were told no, except for one item. The wait person suggested... More

Very good is redundant because all of the chain has high standards. This restaurant was very laid back and we were not rushed.

For a late Mother's Day celebration, I took my family--nine of us--to the Red Lobster. Jessica greeted us with a wonderful smile when we entered. Lisa and Valley took amazing care of us throughout our celebration with a lot of enthusiasm and excellence. My meal and the reports from the rest all gave four stars to the flavor and the... More

Our son and daughter in law took us out for my birthday. We got there around 6 and of course there was a line. Sat at the bar and got a bottle of nice wine, waitress very helpful and efficient. Got seated after less than 1/2 hour. Waiter was Andrew and what a delight he was! He was responsive, helpful,... More

Not my choice to come here, food was OK my wife loves their rainbow trout. Just wish service was better. Waiter would seemingly disappear for 6-7 minutes at a time. If I'm going to spend $80 or so on a meal, service should be better. It's not like they were that busy. That's my only gripe with here. Next time... More

It seems over the past several years Red Lobster restaurants have become inconsistent with their food preparation. It does not appear to be due to eating at different locations, time of day, etc. Perhaps the chef, but that is only speculation. The Red Lobster in Salem provided immediate midday seating. However, service was slow in arriving. In fact, it was... More

We went there for dinner tonight, and the service was extremely slow. Our waitress informed us that she had just gotten sick in the bathroom and that someone would be taking our table over.... which never happened, so she kept on serving us. When we asked her why she was still there, she said that the management said she had... More
