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

Went for a seafood dinner... would not take a reservation on the weekend. Long wait in a very small crowded bar area. Food was good... as was service. Tables for 2 are just WAY too small to sit at & eat comfortably. Restrooms were quite dirty. Not sure I would return.

I love Red Lobster. It is always so tasty!! Just recently I went to the restaurant and decided to try the Lobster Linguini. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I felt like I was eating the leftovers or bad section of the lobster, when my mouth was watering for the good lobster pieces you get from a lobster tail. I wouldn't recommend... More

My husband I decided to go out for the feature that Red Lobster had on. We had been working hard and thought we deserved a treat. Our waiter, George, was terrific. We had the lobster stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, which we always enjoy and then we ordered our main course. Mine came and it was barely warm. So when... More
