Went back to this location after years of staying away due to crowds and long waits. The menu has been refreshed somewhat, but it is still a lot of shellfish (mostly shrimp) with a lot of heavy sauce. Service is acceptable. However, the biscuits are always worth the trip.

We visited a Red Lobster on Finlay Ave in Downers Grove, il. Wanted a decent, fresh seafood dinner. Service was very good. Our waiter was excellent. The food served was nothing special. As an example I ordered the crab cakes. It was advertised as made with lump crab. The crab cake had lump crab mixed with cheaper varieties of crab... More

Loved visiting this restaurant since always see advertisements but never know where to find them. Food was good but not over the top. Some items tasted somewhat salty. Dinner special was worth the price and came with many courses and choices. Outside of special, kind of expensive for fast food chain. Service was good. Decent restaurant experience overall.

Although lunch is only served until 3:00 P.M. - - we arrived at 3:30 and were allowed to order from the lunch menu on which many items are less expensive. Our server was friendly and prompt. My wife had blackened catfish, baked potato and house salad. I had hand-battered fish and chips (French fries) and house salad. We agreed our... More

Although the entrance was well crowded with customers waiting to be seated by four busy hostesses we managed to secure a table by the bar ,across from the bar.At no time did I feel this compromise will deter from a first class service or experience for that matter...because the atmosphere of clicketing plates and silverware thrown about was not enjoyable...

Went to this restaurant during their "crab fest." Wow! food was really terrific and the price was such a bargain for what we got. I ordered the king crab meal which was 1 1/2 lbs of king crab with corn on the cob and some small roasted potatoes for $35. This meal would have cost much more at a "fancier"... More

Yes, Red Lobster is a chain, but this location is more like a custom seafood place. First of all, it's larger than most, presenting an attractive appearance from outside. It was convenient to our hotel, but there were other choices, and we were pleasantly surprised by both the menu and service. Andre, our waiter made sure that the bar and... More
