“Predictable is the best I can offer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

With Red Lobster, you can pretty much be assured of consistent quality and taste, reasonable portions and fair prices and that was what was delivered. Nothing special, just a nice meal in a nice, busy environment. Reservations are not accepted so you generally have to wait 10or 15 minutes if you arrive after 6:00 p.m. most nights. Once seated our server, Ron, was excellent - attentive and helpful. I would return again, for sure, but not until we had tried some other spots.

I usually love Red Lobster but this one is definitely on my list of do not go back. The service was slow and the food was cold by the time we got it.

We had an excellent server, excellent food and even though we were told it would be a 1/2 hour wait to get in, we were seated in about 15 minutes. Best visit to a Red Lobster ever ! !

“Great food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Red Lobster never seems to have bad food. However, on our last visit we did receive cold food, still very good tasting, but barely warm. My biggest complaint is that we waited an hour and a half to be seated. We were told there would be a 45 min wait, which we were ok with however it took double that time. My biggest concern is there were numerous tables that were cleared and were never seated and remained that way most of the night. I believe they could have managed there seating people much more efficiently.
