My husband and I LOVE seafood, so we were excited to meet about 10 friends for a meal and short meeting before our conference started the next morning. We were placed in a great meeting space in the back of the restaurant. Our waiter was wonderful especially considering that we all arrived at different times. The food was excellent. Our... More

The cheddar biscuits must have just come out of the oven so we thought this was going to be a great meal. The shrimp fish and veggies had no flavor to any of it. It was $2.79 to have clam chowder soup and it was a tiny bowl, not very warm and not a full cup. My husbands salad he... More

We went to RL for family Mothers Day dinner. I was worried we would have to wait a long time. They got us in before the estimated time. Restaurant seemed to be wonderfully managed. All staff were on their toes! Excellent customer service and good food. Thank you for a nice family dinner!!

Some of their seafood dishes seem to have been a long time out of the water. However, some of the best scallops I have ever had were here. The biscuits are outstanding.

This was a typical Red Lobster experience. Spent about an hour in the bar before others in our party showed up. The bar tender was exceptional. Made some great drinks and was very tentative to all his customers. All the staff were friendly and the service was great. Did the call ahead thing so we were seated almost immediately when... More

My mom enjoyed the steak and shrimp and I had the maple cherry glazed chicken which was delicious. Not sure if our server was new or just inattentive but we received our salads and she walked away without leaving any silverware so we grabbed some from a nearby table that had been set. Asked for extra dressing and did not... More

We are foodies and travel a lot. We also owned and managed restaurants for many years. Red Lobster is one of those chains that you either love or hate. We love it but you need to.be careful how you order. Always get the cheesy biscuits. They are outstanding. There lobsters are very good and fresh. Not so for the rest.... More
