...The high prices for the tiny lunch portions keep nagging at us that there are other places with better value.

We absolutely love this particular Red Lobster. We eat here every couple of months and it's usually very good. The food tastes great and it's always clean and the staff are very nice.

Mothers Day is always so busy, at restaurants, that my husband and myself had rather eat out either before or after that day. We have a Red Lobster close to us in Oxford, but had not eaten at this one in awhile. So, we decided to make a special trip, to Gadsden, and try it for lunch. This turned out... More

I don't know what it is about this red lobster but their food is always good. The new Red Lobster in Trussville just doesn't compare. There IS a smell I've noticed, like the restaurant is old or musty. But their food is way better.

We have always liked the Gadsden Red Lobster and found it to be one of the better locations of this brand. But we stopped here for lunch today and the service was extraordinarily slow. We waited inordinate amount of time on drinks, waited more for salads and still more for entrees. What should have been a fairly quick stop turned... More

Shrimp is always too small. Surprisingly good steak and fish is good. Fried flounder is good and plenty to eat. Great mixed drinks. Of course we love the biscuits. We go a couple times a year.

We had a pretty pleasant experience at this red lobster, ourselves. Our salad was fresh (maybe a tad bit too much dressing) and our food was served to us hot. I got some oysters and they were wonderful. The setting was nicer than other red lobsters ive been to. However there was couple sitting next to us who had been... More

My friend & I had been running around all day making funeral arrangements for her father when we realized we had not eaten all day. So we got to Red Lobster at 9:05 p.m. which meant we had less than an hour before they closed. We had a WONDERFUL meal, great waiter & the food was delicious. I personally had... More

Just like all the Red Lobsters I have ever ate at this one is about the same. The food is good, service is fair, prices are typical for Red Lobster. Always a wait, no matter the time of day I go there is always a wait.
