Always the same and that's a good thing. Stop in every few months for Red Lobster fix. Good staff and food quality is consistent.

Staff is friendly. Distance between tables not too close. Food is great and most of all dining experience is superb, you would want to come back.

Restaurants need to be clean. This one needed a good going over. After ordering lobster, our waitress botched the order by not adding the potato..then butter for lobster...then she left off the wild rice (which we just decided to forget it, by then.--she seemed to take too long...and blamed everything on the cook. We love Red Lobster, but this one... More

This is a typical Red Lobster. Most of it was very good. It was served quickly by a friendly waitress. It was clean.

Typical seafood at a chain restaurant...good but not great. The salads are ok, but I wish they would improve their dressings. Those Red Lobster dinner rolls are off the chain when hot and fresh. Do you know how many calories those little guys are? Don't even ask, just enjoy them!

This RL is an excellent member of the chain. Their menu is typical and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Food was served well-prepared, promptly and with careful attention. We always eat there when we are in the area. Only once was I disappointed with my meal, and the manager offered to prepare a different dish, but ultimately didn't... More

Great selection of seafood especially lobster/shrimp. The fish isn't always good especially the salmon, which doesn't always taste fresh. Appetizers are good and reasonably priced. Love their biscuits.

The food was excellent, and I appreciated that they serve wine. I recommend any shrimp dish, and my husband always gets a combination platter.

We ordered the Seaside shrimp trio, the shrimp was pretty bland, could not taste any garlic in the scampi, could not eat the shrimp linguini, but my french fries were good. We also ordered the baked lobster Alfredo with salmon, which was pretty good. And we order two if the main lobster tail, which was really good, actually awesome, but... More

They have a great menu selection and are always changing it up. Their garlic biscuits are wonderful. we've been there many times and tried several different items and haven't found anything that we didn't like. They are a little over-priced but that's my only complaint. The service has always been excellent.
