Great food to be had here one of the best Cesar Salad around Toronto. Very helpful to have lobster and crab pre-cracked for easy eating and enjoyable experience. I'll be back. Recommend this location.

This establishment is currently under renovation. However, there was no problem handling our party of 5. It was a spur of the moment decision to frequent this establishment at 1700. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent. The food was well prepared and we all left left satisfied. We got what we paid for and I'd do it again...no... More

I typically like Red Lobster's menu, but this location had good service and my family and I enjoyed our stay. We went on a Saturday afternoon, which was a bit busy with other families, but our waitress still found time to pay attention to us and we didn't have to wait long for service or food! Also, the chicken breast... More

If you want a quick, cheap sea food meal, this is it. Don't expect gourmet... and don't expect that the food wont be dripping in butter and fat.

Friendly atmosphere, nice decor, good service, and good food. We ordered the Sweet Chili Shrimp as a starter and it was very, very delicious. Then we ordered the Shrimp Linguini Alfredo and the Cheese-crusted Fresh Tilapia. Both were good.

My second visit to Red Lobster this year, and again a disappointment. The prices have shot up and although I wanted a lobster meal, I did not want to pay the price. Ordered the lunch scallops and shrimp with a salad. Salad was iceberg lettuce. Scallops were tiny and sitting a a pool of WATER. Shrimps were very small, on... More

I was really looking forward to my lunch at Red Lobster. I usually get the crab pasta dish which is a number 10! I bypass everything on the menu for this. However, this time I decided to go for lobster. I couldn't afford the special platter, so I opted for the Lobster pasta dish - I was a little disappointed.... More

No doubt our server was friendly, helpful in suggesting what to order to get the best deal. We were there for the lobsterfest. One of the items we ordered had 2 tails. One was in the shell and one was on top of the shell. The in shell one was great. Unfortunately the one on top of the shell was... More
