It took a long time to receive our food. The restaurant wasn't busy, however the server did ask if we had other plans, in order to decide if we were a priority. I guess we weren't. I love the lobster mash potatoes, however this visit, the lobster was too tough to eat. I expected better service and food.

Had a couples night out, service was prompt and food was delivered at the right time and temperature. Especially like the cold salads there.

if you like fresh frozen sea food and expensive at that you might like this place. This is a typical chain sea food joint that is way over priced and not really that good. Service is ok and employees are friendly. I just prefer fresh seafood and that is not available here or anywhere in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

We use to frequent this place more when we were younger. However, we can't handle the deep fried entrees like we use too. Came here at 12:30 pm during lunch time on a Tuesday. Wasn't busy, so automatically I worry about the food and service. My wife and I both had shrimp. Our waitress was nice and the food was... More

I usually do not write reviews of chain restaurants but this one was particularly good. Eating on my own the staff was nice and made for a good experience. Rainbow trout was perfectly grilled and veggies were cooked correctly--not to mushy, not to hard. Rice was overly small serving. Couple of good wine selections.

We stayed at the Auburn Place right next to Red Loblster which I was very happy to see how close they were together since I was already dead set on eating Red Lobster for Dinner. My daughter and I both had the Endless Shrimp and enjoyed everything about it. Very good service and friendly staff. Clean and fast service. Had... More

We stopped here on our way through town. It is like any Red Lobster, so nothing specifically special about this location. It was conveniently close to hotels for travelers. Food was good and service was quick. Would eat here again.

Overpriced. The menu has amazing looking pictures and offers, but everyone I wanted cost well over $25. I ordered anyway and, wasn't just disappointed at the small portion size... but out of the pound of crab legs I ordered, all the legs were pretty much empty, except one section of one leg. Will I go back? Probably not, since this... More

After seeing the commercials for Crab Fest aired over and over, we decided we'd give Red Lobsters special a try. We were immediately greeted and seated. The crab fest and specials where presented to us and as stated, our server was with us shortly thereafter. Our server was very nice and attentive. I decided to try the Crab Fest Crab... More
