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

She asked if on time constraint which we replied no, however After 15 mins without being greeted by server with fly buzzing around us, we went to someplace who wanted our business. There was a girl who... More

The biscuits are amazing! Good service too. I ordered the lobster and shrimp with mashed potatoes, brown rice & Caesar salad. Everything was good except the lobster was small and quite frankly tasted like it was frozen! I know we wouldn't get fresh out of the ocean seafood, since we are smack dab in the middle of the country. But... More

My family and I visited while traveling. The food was fresh and very good! Honestly the best Red Lobster I have visited. Our waiter, Collin, was exceptional. Thank you for a great dinner!

While staying at a nearby hotel, we had dinner at this location. Our waitress was very nice and we enjoyed talking with her. The food was good...typical Red Lobster.
