“Under staffed and slidding down hill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Too long a wait to be seated and the a wait to be served. Staffing seems to be a problem and the menu has slide down hill. The the Red Lobster I remember from other locations.

“Did not expect it to be the best, but ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Was invited out to dinner by a family member who lives in The Villages. I have eaten at Red Lobsters and most have been good restaurants. Of course, I did not expect it to be the best, but it was far less than ok.

Bread, salad and apetitizer was ok to good. My seafood platter was not good. Service was ok at best. Will not go back.

“OK food, but service could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Me and my daughter split an appetizer of calamari, but it wasn't cooked properly. Calamari should be firm, not mushy. The main entree was good, but had little pieces of plastic in the shrimp. The manager never stopped by to ask how our food was even after there was a problem. Food was average, service and management could have been better. Must have been an off night as this is not what I typically encounter.
