We ordered from the crab-fest menu, just as we could at any Red Lobster, but were disappointed that there was no option for fresh Dungeness crab, the stellar local variety. It was the same defrosted snow and king crab that you could get in any Red Lobster, anywhere, with no chance to enjoy a regional specialty. Drink service was delayed... More

The server's were excellent and very accommodating. The portions were really huge and the oysters fresh and delicious. If you are into value, you are in the right place. However, compared to other seafood restaurants, I found their menu selections and preparations rather dated and old fashioned. They should also update their bar menu to include more trendy cocktails with... More

As they come, this is just another Red Lobster. But this one is slightly different in that we did not have to wait a long time for our server to show up or our food to arrive once ordered. The service made the difference in this case.

We went to Red Lobster for a birthday dinner, our waitress was probably one of the BEST server's I've ever had. She was so friendly and helpful and attentive! Our food was good, I had Mahi Mahi and shrimp. The fish was on the dry side but the shrimp was AWESOME! My dinner partner had the surf and turf and... More

The food is "wow", especially during all you can eat Shrimp. The restaurant is always very clean and the service is above all else. Very friendly and courteous to... More

I always get salmon or trout there, since shellfish is "not my cup of tea". It always tastes good at Red Lobster and their biscuits are to die for.

I usually stay away from Darden restaurants, especially in Southern states, where they can be truly dreadful. All Darden franchises could only hope to be as good as this one in Vancouver, WA. This is more like RL used to be twenty years ago. The restaurant was clean and the service was attentive. I ordered a shrimp and scallop lunch.... More

It was my first experience of Red Lobster on my birthday, and I have to say that the unlimited shrimp deal the waitress recommended was BOMB :D
