Red Lobster used to be one of our favorite places to eat, but it pales in comparison to Harry's Old Place in WH or Harry's Seafood in downtown Lakeland. The seafood just isn't as fresh or as good as it is in those or other places.

the décor was cute, the salad was like it has been for 20 years, the potato soup needed thinned and some flavor, they put the popcorn shrimp in the trash not on the menu any longer but they kept the soup? The chicken breast was a maple glazed wonderful prize it needed a bigger bed of rice. I used to... More

The mozzarella cheese/tomato side item which can be substituted instead of salad or a side item is awesome. I love balsamic vinaigrette so I LOVED this. My husband got a fish plate which he really enjoyed and I got shrimp. At the location we ate has some extra specials on Monday and Tuesday which allowed me to get 3 shrimp... More

We love the Red Lobster. The 4 course feast is great value and the cheddar bay biscuits are excellent. Great service as well.

This is my go to restaurant when I want seafood. The food is hot and fresh and those biscuits are awesome. The shrimp scampi is my favorite along with the broiled flounder.

I have not been to a Red Lobster in years. I sat at the large, nice bar and basically had it to myself. It was clean, the staff was attentive. I ordered mahi and 15 minutes later they told me they didn't have any. Surprised it took so long. I changed to salmon and it was fine.

Thank mahimike
