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.

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

Jasmine was our server and she is awesome. We had Crunchy fish sandwich, fish and chips and Scampi and Wood -Grilled chicken. Food was good. I had the fish and chips and the fish was done properly. So light and tender. We were all hungry having not eaten since breakfast and it was almost 4 pm. The biscuits tasted so... More

I ordered the Admiral's Feast and received a plate full of brown items. There was nothing at all added to give it color. The scallops were tiny. Very noisy as well..could not hear the persons on the other side of the table talking at times. Would not go back here again.

We eat here with friends once a month and have never had a bad meal. All the food is prepared well and the staff are warm and courteous. Have never had anything from the menu that wasn't a great choice, the only problem is "what to choose."!
