I tried the biscuits and I think they need to decrease the amount of topping on it. I think there was more butter and salt (topping) than bread. As for the house salad with ranch, the lettuce and cucumbers was nice, brown and wilted. The dressing tasted ok. Finally, my main entrée was lobster in shrimp scampi sauce and pasta.... More

What can you really say, it's a Red Lobster just like every other Red Lobster - mediocre, overpriced seafood for people who think Olive Garden is authentic Italian cuisine. Unfortunately the seafood options in Sumter are severely limited.

Visited here a few weeks back and the place has really gone down hill. The service was adequate and the food was just about the same. For a chain restaurant, I do not expect a lot, however, I do expect that the items on the menu are prepared the same at this location as any other restaurant in the chain.... More

We had planned a nice dinner out but the poor service ruined the meal. We waited more than 15 minutes for our waitress to even take our drink order, which she got wrong. The meal was a typical chain meal. I don't know if we'll eat here again. Even for Sumter this place wasn't very good.

Been here quite a few times as friends really like this place. I think it is just OK, had one of the specials this time which was quite awful, shrimp overcooked, cold when served. Desert was excellent as were the biscuits. Service OK. Really have been there for lunch & good but dinner poor - just too spotty service and... More

it was late when we arrived and there was no one in the front to seat us. The manager found us and apologized and immediately had us seated. She immediately took our drink order and handed us menus. She was friendly and courteous. The lobster shrimp specials were great -- lots of flavor. Everything arrived in a timely manner. The... More

Typical Red Lobster. Food was better than good, but not excellent. Service was excellent. Very much a Southern Hospitality Restaurant, from when we walked into the restaurant until we walked out. Would go again.

The food is not fresh. All dishes usually are dripping in oils The staff does the bare minimum generally speaking (encountered one nice waitress, but did not interact with her due to a large party that one incident). It needs updating. It's a poor excuse for a Red Lobster. I will stick with making seafood at home.
