Good food

Fresh food, good waitstaff and fair prices. I love a good steak and lobster even tho they may be a bit small the flavor is great. Portions are small for the price.

They used to be a good place to eat, but lately the wait and the food are not to the quality that you pay for. The prices are kind of high.

Entering into the restaurant it was a little early and noticed half of the restaurant was full. I was asked for a name and given a "beeper" for when the table would be ready. Not more than I sat down the table was ready. I was curious why even to use this seating method, but did not question. I had... More

I can always count of Red Lobster for the seafood I expect and the buttered biscuits I love. The appetizer butterfly shrimp is to die for I always wish I get it for my meal.

Nice restaurant with reasonably priced seafood. The popcorn shrimp is a real bargain. As always, the cheesy biscuits are awesome.

I could make a meal on just the coleslaw and biscuits. Always love the never ending shrimp. But we can never eat that much. Service has always been good.

Went here for business earlier this month. It was a sad disappointment. The place smelled awful and a lot of tables were empty for a weekday at 12:30. The service was okay but the food was very slow for a pretty empty place and it didn't taste as good as I remembered. This was my first time at this particular... More

What a comfort to pull into the Red Lobster late on Friday nite after a day of driving and be greeted and served by a wonderful staff and have those great biscuits! I had the berry sangria ... Very refreshing ... The lobster tail/scallops and skewered shrimp over wild rice.... It was very good ... More then I could eat... More

We attended a collage graduation ceremony and were looking for some place to dine. We were pleased to find the Lufkin Red Lobster, and were seated quickly considering the restaurant was extremely busy. Our server was polite, efficient, and friendly. Drinks, appetizers, and entrees were promptly served and very tasty. We had a great meal and left extremely satisfied.

This is typical Red Lobster..........bad! TV ads make Red Lobster look upscale and seafood prepared by 5 star executive chefs. Wish that was the case. The crab legs were small and tough to open. The meat was gummy and old tasting. The shrimp pasta was rally dry and gummy as well. Shrimp had a real "fishy" smell to them. The... More
