5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The food was very good and the service just as good. The manager was very nice to check to make sure everything was ok.

“Another chain restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This is consistently good food. The amenities could be better, hence, i do not like the bathroom (women's), but the manager walks around and checks the temperature and seeks input from the partrons. I like this one.

“Super Busy, Long Waits, Always Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

My husgband and I go to the Red Lobster in Ames frequently. We like it better than the Des Moines location, becuase the wait staff is always fabulous. The restaurant is always very busy, especially on weekends, and there is usually a wait. But, it is worth it! The food is always good, and the service great.

“Presidents' Day Lunch for late Valentine's Day Celebration”

Had a great lunch in Ames at the Red Lobster with our daughter who attends ISU. We enjoy our visits to this restaurant and once again this time were not disapointed.

“Average chain with great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

I like the atmosphere for the Ames Red Lobster. The service is great and they have coupons when you sign up for the club online. The food is well prepared and the seafood has never been rubbery. I will send back overcooked seafood and have never once had to do this at the Ames location.
