The food was really good, and the service was nice. I would reccomend to eat there before 9 pm. We went there at 7 pm and had no problem getting a place to sitt, but while we where there the line just kept on growing.

Red Lobster was a positive surprise, because I didn't expect that the lobster would be so tasty in a place like this. But it really was. The service were also very good. :)

This was our first visit to the Red Lobster as we don't usually like chain restaurants, but I must admit this venue on Times Square was superb. My wife who is not a great fish lover but there was plenty on the menu for non fish lovers, my meal which was scallops, prawns and lobsters tail was actually one of... More

I do love Red Lobster - for me as an European you could never afford Lobster, Shrimp + Scallops for this price Service, Food - everything is fine And not pricier because it is NY

I was given a $25 voucher by a friend at work so decided to try this restaurant with an open mind. The menu looked great and the the pictures of the food very appetising how disappointing all were when the food came out. All of the food was at best luke-warm I ordered a steak with crab and jacket potato.... More

Super busy, be prepared for a wait but the place is massive so we were seated in about 15-20min. Portions are huge so if you're not a big eater, just get a main as it comes with a pretty sizable salad and there is bread (more like scones) to start. We ordered a clam chowder bowl to share as a...
