“Convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

It is convenient to the Courtyard by Marriott. Food is average in my opinion. Service is good. I like that they have several salmon dishes. Wish the soup, salad selection was greater.

“Average Food, Good Service, Poor Waiting Times”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My girlfriend, her family, and I came for dinner on early Friday evening of the July 4th weekend. The waiting time to be seated was extremely disappointing. After being seated, the server did a good job with our orders and requests.

As for the food, it's pretty much the same as any typical chain restaurant; the food tastes average, nothing to extraordinary.

“uncooked stuffed flownder”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My Girl and I stopped by the Ronkonkoma location for dinner. We ordered the lobster pizza appetizer which was good. We both orderer the same meal, stuffed flownder and grilled shimp on a skewer, the shimp were mushy and wet, not cooked well and the stuffed flownder was uncooked under the stuffing, even looked raw inside. My wife told the waiter and he didn't seem to care. We both decided that it would be the last time we venture to sit down to eat at this location. Popei's in Sayville is the place for seafood well prepared and delicious.

“Over priced Food and not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Had snow crab legs.. ..hardly any meat and what was there was stringy and a struggle to get to...about $20 for that... The wife had one of the Lobster fest plates... her platter was about $30 and consisted of some tv dinner quality shrimp, small lobster tail and crab legs. It was $30 for a bunch of mediocre food.
$2.50 for a club soda..

Service is syrupy sweet...i know they tell these kids to talk that way thinking the customers are stupid enough to think it genuine.. contrived bs

You would be much better off having a good slice of pizza or buying a pound of shrimp and cooking them at home.

I don't know how Red Lobster survives overcharging for this crap food.

“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Walking in we were greeted by a lovely young woman. We were led to a booth but stated we preferred a table. Fifteen minutes later, we were seated in a back room at a large table. Food was good. Had Ultimate Feast, EVerything was great except the crab legs were a bit dry - had to use butte for taste which I normally do not do. We ordered appetizer that came with stuffed mushrooms and coconut shrimp as well as shrimp cocktail. Had no problem substituting more coconut shrimp for the cocktail. Good meal, good service, good value. Only downside, crowd next to us was quite loud and management did not see it.
