This is a Red Lobster. If you are looking for something different in seafood, try another place. If, however, you like the food and menu, this is the only one in the area and rightfully so. The service is great and the staff are all friendly. I would suggest that you go for lunch to avoid the REALLY long dinner... More

We went there last week and what a disappontment it turned out to be. The server was a total joke and had no experience. We waited 10 minutes to get our drinks. My wife got a Daiquiri (well at least they called it that) and I got a watered down coke. Then we waited for the appetizers another 15 minutes... More

We usually go here a couple times a year and find on average the food and service is good most of the time. You need to go there with the understanding you may have to wait up to an hour to get in. If you don't, you won't be happy even before you get in.

I used to love RL!! I love sea food, it was my go to place for sea food cravings. I took my husband and our 3 years old daughter to this location. We waited 45 minutes for our food, our daughter was getting fussy, then the food came and I can't even swallow my Caesar salad, it's loaded with anchovies,... More

First of all, they don't take reservations on the weekends and if you have more than 4 people, they only have a small limited amount of tables. When I called, I was told that we should be there about 30 min ahead of when we want to eat. We arrived 30 min ahead and then were told it would be... More

Having been a RL customer years back, I took my husband and another couple there last week to celebrate his birthday... We booked here with fond memories of how things used to be. Great service. Great food... Boy have times changed! Everything from the appetizers to the main course were terrible. The Caesar salad had so much anchovy paste in... More

The best place to go for seafood! I have been to Red Lobster many times and have never been disappointed. Its an extremely popular place so it best book ahead or avoid peak hours. Great selection on the menu from appetizers to desert, the biscuits are an added bonus. Whether you enjoy seafood or steak, the menu has enough for... More

The triple shrimp combo along with escargot and caesar salad is our favourite meal. Options with potato, rice and vegetable choices make this choice a winner. This restaurant is always well staffed, so, there are no long delays. The food was hot but a little salty for our liking, otherwise a great choice.

This Red Lobster is by far the best in Ontario. You would think all the Red Lobsters would be the same but that is not the case. This one has by far the best food out of them all and the most friendliness of staff(Ask for Helen or Terry)...they joke around with you which is nice. The staff are attentive... More
