“Great Seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We have always had a great meal at Red Lobster. Our one complaint is that it is always crowded and we don't like to wait! The food is of excellent quality and they handle large crowds well...we had almost 20 people and they did an excellent job! Recommend!

“$14.99 all you can eat Shrimp event. great way to try different dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We saw the television ads for the annual all you can eat shrimp so that we would give it a whirl. We have not been to Red Lobster in probably three years and the pictures of course were mouthwatering! We went on labor day at around 5 pm. We got seated pretty promptly and were told wait person would be right over. After almost 10 full minutes of waiting and no one my other half was ready to vacate the building. I talked him into waiting a few minutes as they should be right along I was told. This was our only complaint of the evening. Service at the beginning. In a place this big with this many employees you should not be left sitting waiting for a waiter to come by. It is unexcuseable and when you go out you want to be pampered. But fortuanetly when the waiter did arrive he was very attentive from that point on. Refilling our drinks and checking on us numerous times. The salads were standard fare for the garden salad selection- bag salads with a bit of dressing up with cucumbers and croutons. The dressing was very good. The new Teriyaki shrimp on the wooden skewers was phenonemally good. I think i reordered two more of those. I also sampled the shrimp scampi with parmesan crusted topping which was very good. My other half also sampled the Garlic shrimp scampi which was very good and the same two I got. Our favorites were the teriyaki Shrimp grilled on the skewers hands down. The garlic cheese rolls are always fresh made and warm and inviting. You always want more of those little gems. The side dishes were cooked perfectly which included the rice pilaf and a excellent baked potatoe with the skins just right topped with melted butter and sour cream. The mashed potatoes were very tasty as well. All in all the service was very good. The waiter did a great job on checking up on us and putting in reorders timely so even before we were quite down the next ones were arriving. So for the annual Shrimp event I would give it a thumbs up. Restaurant looked clean with nice decor and bathrooms in order as they should be.

“Yummy”

Dropped in for the all you can eat shrimp and ended up with the fire cooked shrimp, scallops and lobster. Very good food. For my taste it was well prepared, arrived hot and was properly cooked.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We went to Red Lobster for a late lunch after a busy morning of shopping in Watertown malls. We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, but there were plenty of seats to sit down as we waited.
Our waitor was very attentive and helped us select a beer from their bar menus. The food was excellent and served hot.
We'll definately return.
