As far as Red Lobsters go, this is a good one. The restaurant was clean and our server was attentive. It was a hot day so we were putting away the iced tea and our server kept our glasses full. Food didn't take long and was delicious. I recommend and would return.

Stopped in had the crab fest dinner. Bardie crab was amazing. The Caesar salad is always a must have with the cheddar biscuits. My wife had the tilapia fish and it was very good. Service was very good.

I know. Red Lobster for a steak!?! It's true! The Surf and Turf meal has a New York Strip steak that is amazing! Victor, the chef, is the best chef we have encountered in our many visits to local restaurants in Bloomington. All the food is awesome and the staff is wonderful! Friendly, helpful, and they work very hard to... More

We had an early dinner after meetings one day last week and we had a great meal. I get my usual: Fresh catch Full size so that I can take leftovers home and enjoy another meal from Red Lobster. I get the Salmon, Squash/Zucchini side and lobster mashed potatoes. For the salad, I pay extra for the Tomato Basil Caprese... More

After being led to our table and noticing that the seats were filthy with food I asked the host if we could get something to clean them. She grabbed a handful of napkins and swiped across both seats smearing food and walked away. I actually had to go get more napkins to clean the seats to sit, and then we... More

We were skeptical about eating here after reading past reviews but were hankering for some cheddar rolls (which we hadn't had in years) so decided to give it a shot. What a pleasant surprise! First of all, our server, Kinnedra, was just a doll and very attentive to our needs. We started with the lobster/artichoke appetizer and it was delicious,... More

We were seated promptly and our server was very attentive throughout our meal. The manager stopped by our table several times and was very pleasant making sure we were well satisfied. The food was done just right with all 3 of us requesting varied levels of cooking of our steaks. Our drinks were refilled promptly through the meal and our... More
