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.

Ordered over the phone. Our food was ready when we arrived to pick it up. One of our salads was missing, but the food was hot and delicious! Would definitely order from there again.

My husband went to Red Lobster for our wedding anniversary. We couldn't afford to go out of town, so this was our best option. We weren't disappointed, it was a wonderful meal with fabulous service. TBH, we weren't expecting much with a chain restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. However, we'd gotten a sitter for the evening and were hoping... More

I reviewed this restaurant in March of last year and could not have had a better experience. Great food, service, etc. Fast forward 11 months and I had a totally different experience. The service was ok, it was the food that we were disappointed with. My fiance had fish and chips and the fish was so overcooked and hard, it... More

We arrived before the dinner rush so we didn't have to wait long to be seated. Our drinks were brought promptly and our waitress took our order in a pleasant manner and timely fashion. Our meals arrived immediately after the salads so that timing could have been better, but at least we didn't have to wait overly long and the... More

My wife and I ate here during the day for a lunch date. The service was excellent and the food arrived promptly. We each had a good portion of fish. We will come here again.

I just visited the lobster and I must not have been there in forever because I saw they remodeled and it looks fabulous. Everyone was more uniform which looked great. The food was very good and affordable. Our waiter was marvelous with knowing the menu and very polite. I would definitely recommend going and asking to be seated in Tony's... More
