Not as yummy as hoped

Had the steak with lobster. The steak was not great. But I loved the complimentary cheese biscuits! I would just be happy with a basket of them on their own if I returned. Our waitress was super lovely I remember.

I went here with my in-laws last week and was so disappointed! There is NOTHING good about the food here. Everything tasted as if they pulled it out of a frozen dinner box and threw it on a plate. We ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and the crab tasted fishy and like it was from a can.... More

This has to be the worst Red Lobster ever. We had the four course dinner. The soup and salad were good but the entries were bad. The lobster shrimp linguini and chicken ? linguini were watery. The chicken tasted funny.

Red lobster has pretty good lobsters, in fact one of the best i've ever tried. This restaurant is located at a predominantly black area, but it sure felt pretty safe and cozy. Waiter was really nice, organising a nice group to sing a birthday song to my friend and allowing me to take-out some of the extra food that i... More

Service was pretty good, with waiter Peter showing actual interest where we travelled from, while providing good service (refills on time, food was pretty fast, not pushy on desserts). Lunch with the family for little money due to the 4-course deal, with soup, salad, entrée and dessert, for only USD 15.99. And no small lunch portions, but more food than... More

We recently enjoyed coconut shrimp and a lobster bowl. Everything was good, the biscuits are to die for. We also love their baked potatoes. Salad was very fresh. Some previous visits were not as good, so we are excited that this visit everything was good.

I'm not sure what's been going on with Reb Lobster lately. We love Red Lobster, their food is usually outstanding and I love their bisquits. But everytime we visit the Red Lobster on 290 near Tidwell, the service is Oh.So.Slow!!! Last time we ate there, March 2014, it was a Monday night and hardly anyone in the restaurant. And they...

It has been a while, so we thought, let's give it another try. Well.....we ordered mac-n-cheese for the kids (powdered cheese, you can see the clumps, just awful)....I ordered golden fried catfish and broccoli, baked potato and lobster bisque. Lobster bisque - SALTY and runny; Baked Potato was actually covered in SALT; Broccoli was ok. The only thing worth eating... More
