At first hand you're not sure if you're parking at the right place. Once inside you are greeted with how many and follow me (very cold) and then you wait for a server and then you wait for your food witch is not too warm but the sea food is delicious.

When you walk in you are greeting with an amazing staff and the one thing I found amazing is that the waiters and waitresses are very attentive. They make great seafood dishes and I would definitely recommend this place.

But I was dead-set on having crab legs, and was craving the Alfredo, so the Crab Lover's Dream was the obvious choice. My partner had Salmon New Orleans and enjoyed it as well. We also shared the...

We had not been here in a while as we found quality to be hot or miss at times but the lure of Lobster and Shrimp was too much and this time, they did not disappoint. We both had combo dishes of shrimp and lobster along with appetizers (escargot and jumbo coconut shrimp) and our grandson and chicken fingers. Everything... More

Saddened by the departure of one of our family-favorite restaurants, we always make time for a trip to Red Lobster when ANYWHERE near Ottawa. You just can't go wrong. The brand is such a sure thing, from city to city, country to country, whatever you order, you are sure to get the same freshness, the same quality, the same great... More

I was disappointed. This is my second time. The first time was quite good, but this time, the lobster was not tasty at all. It tasted nothing, like water. I do not think I will try again.
