Went on a busy Friday night but only had to wait 20 minutes. The service was very good. We all had the endless shrimp which the waitress let us try some that were not on the list. She was very knowledgeable and explain what each was.

15 of our family recently met here for lunch. I hadn't called ahead for reservations (which we will do next time), but the staff and management was so great to accommodate our group. We stayed several hours and we never felt pressured to leave and were treated so graciously. Our wait-staff was great at service, continually offering beverages. And of... More

I usually don't like Red Lobsters. They are overpriced, the food is just okay, and the wait staff are extremely boring (going through the motions) and "plastic." I was pleasantly surprised here. Me waiter and the other wait staff I observed were genuinely nice and helpful to their customers. They were attentive, not pushy, and earned the nice tip that... More

Went there today for a B-day lunch. The service was excellent. Everything we ordered was cooked perfect. Shrimp, Salmon, Lobster tail, fish Tacos and my wife said the chicken was really good. It was a great experience at this chain. I would go back again for sure. We left full and happy.

My husband and I rarely go to chain restaurants. This one was within walking distance from our hotel and given the late hour we thought we would just go here for a bite to eat. As far as we could tell we were one of the only three parties in the place. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer and... More

Members of Redlobster club. Tried unsuccessfully to print coupon at nearby Baymont no Wi-Fi,..so we're accommodated with the triple free appetizers which were just two, which we'd been told they were out of the expensive one!

A nice choice for a Sunday meal. Five of us had steak, seafood platters, lobster bisque, and pasta with a variety of seafood. Everyone was well satisfied. The biscuits are always a hit, and there was a new Caprese Salad to try at extra cost. There won't be any surprises,but sometimes that's kind of nice.

This location is at the front of the lot of Baymont Inn hotel. It was, of course crowded on a Friday night, so I ate in the bar. Kuddos to the bar crew, they were fast and friendly. The Salmon New Orleans was, fantastic and the Key Lime pie was perfectly tart. My only complaint is the beer selection but... More

We've eaten at the Mankato Red Lobster a handful of times over the last few years. We do not live in Mankato but we do go there occasionally for one reason or another. This time we were not as pleased as in the past. Our meals were OK but not as good as we remembered from previous visits. My fish... More
