Can you imagine? We spent nearly a month traveling through New England and eating at one seafood restaurant after another, and we never saw a Red Lobster. So, upon returning to Chicago, we were anxious to meet with friends and swap stories with old high...More

Our waitress was very nice, but the food was more than disappointing. Over the years RL has lowered it's standards, quality, and size of the food as well as the portions. They even slice a tail in half to make it look bigger on the...More

We really enjoyed our dinners, the lobster bisque was delicious. However, it feels like every time we stop in this location, we're eating in Romper Room. There were screaming kids all over the dining room, and as usual, the parents did absolutely NOTHING to quiet...More

This Red Lobster was just O.K. I thought it was a little overpriced, and the Bartender didn't know how to make my cocktail properly. That being said this WAS a Red Lobster, and since I have never reviewed one before here on Trip Advisor I...More

Prices are reasonable, food was good. I guess because I'm on a low sodium diet the fish seem to be a bit salty to me although the fish was great. Everyone had different meals some beef, some all fish and some had shrimp.
