Good food, good service, clean as a whistle

I'm not much of a chain restaurant fan but this was a nice surprise. Food was good, not great. Service was very good! Very attractive, clean place.

Monroe, MI is starting quite a trend! They have the worst Red Lobster, the worst Cracker Barrel, the worst Meijer, the worst Wal-Mart. ugh...I digress. This Red Lobster never has half of the menu. There are always excuses as why they don't have the specials. Food is brought out cold and my shrimp tacos came in their tortillas with shells... More

Red Lobster, red lobster, your corporation is too big to maintain quality service and food. We don't eat at a Red Lobster very often even though you can find them everywhere across the country and on other continents. We stopped at a hotel here in Monroe, MI., and since Red Lobster was the only restaurant within walking distance, it was... More

The seating was quick the waitress was attentive but the food was slow. I love Red Lobster. Great food consistently prepared but this one had slow, slow service. We were on a business trip and 1 and 1/2 hr for a standard dinner is way too long for 3 people to need to spend.

There was such a long long wait time for seating. Host/Hostess was rude and said "just have a seat". There were none!

Red Lobster always has fresh fish and their standard fares. Food is always good and service as well. Unfortunately, this restaurant is extremely busy during the evening hours Friday through Sunday. Long waits.

The staff was great. The food was always good. There is a nice variety of dishes to choice from. Looking forward to eating there again when we are in the area.

Ate a solo business dinner here on a WED night - right next door to a Hampton Inn. Good service, good food - I have never had a bad meal at a Red Lobster, no matter where in the USA the restaurant was located.

Being the only place residents can get a lobster dinner, they have a good crowd. Items are too overpriced and serving sizes small. The food is usually good, but I think you are paying for name and the atmosphere
