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

Red Lobster is our very special celebration restaurant. We celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, awards, etc. Food is very good and service has always been great. They also serve great drinks also. You will have no complaints here.

I could make a meal of the cheese biscuits alone. We had salads and appetizers for lunch. I don't get to go to RL often enough but try every chance I get. Our server was a very sweet and helpful young lady that just capped off the experience.

We went to Red Lobster to eat the fish. We were told they were out of fish because they had been hit hard by the holiday traffic. What?! The shrimp was good, but I had my mind on the fish.

I'm not traditionally a big fan of Red Lobster and Lufkin's location has done little to change that for good or for bad. The place is exactly what I always expect of a mass marketed, mass researched restaurant - uninspiring and safe. The price was right especially since we had a gift certificate which was basically why we went there... More

Although this is a chain restaurant, expected better in terms of service and food quality. Not a very busy evening when we stopped, but they were out of two items we were interested in, and the entree we chose was bland.

The new Shrimp tacos are pretty yummy. They are on the lunch menu for 7.99. You get 3 shrimp tacos (grilled or fried) and rice pilaf. Good price for a great lunch. I could only eat 2 of them.

Short wait even though plenty of empty tables. Good Service could not make up for very poor quality of food. I have not been here in two years and was shocked by the lower quality of the salad. And even more disappointed in the food. My husband fried shrimp were almost burned. They tasted like burned piecrust. My fried shrimp... More
