Good food. Obviously. It's a chain.

It's good stuff all the way around. Typical food that you get from any red lobster. Let's be real, if you are going to state college there are more places that you can chose from for more of an authentic experience but you can play it safe with any chain like Red Lobster.

I know a lot of people like to pick on the "Red Lobster" because it's a chain restaurant. However, I have been eating there more often than in any other place - probably because it's so close to my home -, and I have never been disappointed. I have to admit that I have only gone there for lunch and... More

Eaten there maybe 5 times in the last 6 months or so. Food has always been very good, atmosphere usually very pleasant and for the most part the service has been exceptional. On the occasion when it wasn't (and it was not a new server based on a previous visit) she simply seemed at a loss (not up on the... More

Not many people know this about Red Lobster but they will not serve any fish that is over fished so you know you are always getting the best fish and not destroying the environment. the waitress was so nice, let us share a dinner and thought ahead to bring additional plates. great wine too. LOVE it.

My husband and I ate at Red Lobster and expected the normal night out. We lucked out and got CJ as a waiter. He was an excellent waiter. I told him I was on a diet and he offer me some menu choices. He anticipated our needs and was a refreshing change. Thank you for the excellent meal and service.... More

That was the first time I was ever in a restaurant and the hostess never looked or spoke to us. The other young woman next to her, picked up two menus and started to walk away so we followed her. She also never looked or spoke to us. Our waitress was extremely friendly.

Attended Red Lobster in State College for Crabfest 2 weeks ago, for Crab Lover's Dream and Wild-Caught Snow Crab & Seafood Bake. Dinner was nice, our crab was a little cold but still well cooked. Our waiter was very polite and friendly. The downside was an hour after dinner my boyfriend and I started to feel itchy and unconformable around... More

Whenever we go to State College, we go with my mom-in-law to the Red Lobster there. The food is consistently good. This is one of the few times I did not get coconut shrimp but the wood-fired grilled shrimp was just as good! On this past visit on August 6, 2015 we had exceptional service as well. I don't know...
