“awful service , awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

went with a group of friends,all but one ordered the same meal, lobster tail, shrimp on a stick and garlic shrimp and 2 sides. The other friend ordered the salmon meal, which turned out to be a trout meal because they ran out of salmon . Our meals came and where presented on a huge plate, but the portions were tiny, so small that most of us thought they forgot the rice until we found a tablespoon amount under the grilled shrimp. Most of my friends received the wrong sides and ended up have and extra side.The food tasted bland, didn't taste the garlic on the shrimp , the rice was gross and the portions were tiny and not at all worth the price paid. Will not be returning to red lobster again.

“Bland”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

dry seafood. the only way that this seafood dishes are considered great is if you have never had fresh seafood before. Which judging by the line up in Central Ontario is the case. It is bland dry yucky food. the bread was the best part.
