Food was OK, service lacking

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... read 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."!

We decided to go back to Red Lobster again but were very wary of the service and food, but when we walked through the door we could already tell there was a difference from before, we were greeted promptly, just a small wait for a table, server was very friendly and made sure everything was to our satisfaction, food was...

I have been there twice this month. The first time I had a salad and my friend had MAHI MAHI at my suggestion. I tried it and it was great as was my salad. The second visit I came for lunch to get the MAHI MAHI but it wasn't on the lunch menu as it was on the dinner menu.... More

Whatever you have, be sure to leave room for the cheesecake! It was awesome. All of the food was great. Coconut shrimp was a little dry, but had good flavor. Jake was our server and he was fantastic. Very attentive and so nice. Loved the restaurant's atmosphere.
