We were seated after a brief wait. My companions silverware was dirty with old food, the server forgot to bring his baked potato and my lobster add on did not appear, to me to be cooked through. Additionally, the kitchen slathers a highly seasoned butter on the lobster tail that masks the lobster completely. I sent my lobster back and... More

This was the first time to this Red Lobster. First thing was there were no more that 20 customers in the restaurant and we were told it would be a few minutes before we would get seated. The noise from the speakers was not conducive to a relaxing meal. We got seated and when I opened the napkin with the... More

It is a cardboard cutout ouf every other Red Lobster in the world. All of them are staffed by cranky millenials, who would rather be on Facebook instead of working. Food barely average, and I feel really bad for the lobsters in the front tanks awaiting death.

I have always loved this place but I think my perception has forever changed as of today. Ate here for lunch while waiting on vehicle repairs. The eating area was swarming with flies and when brought to the waitress' attention, she just shooed them away and asked to take my order. They were so annoying, that I lost my appetite.... More

We had a group of 9. Two were children,one in a high chair. The 7 year old wanted to go there for his birthday. There was a problem with one of the adult meals. They forgot to bring the lobster bisque with the other food. When it did arrive it was cold. She had to send it back. The rest... More

My wife did the smartest thing. She ordered two shrimp cocktails instead of an entree. They were large, succulent and delicious. I made the mistake of ordering the fried Admiral's Platter. The calms were fishy and inedible. The clam strips were fried dough. The fried shrimp were flat and tasteless. The only thing good on the plate was the french... More

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.
