First thing is first... I don't order lemons on my drinks from restaurants and bars. The reason I don't is because the majority of cut up lemons have fecal matter on them due to employees not properly washing their hands when they cut them. With that information out of the way, my son and I visited their establishment on a... More

We both chose the 4 course dinner option (soup, salad, entree, dessert), and overall we felt like it was the best bang for your buck. It just wasn't anything outstanding. The clam chowder was just mediocre, and the salad looked like they put some lettuce in a bowl and put dressing on it. The grilled shrimp tasted and looked good.... More

Excellent food and service consistently over a few visits this last year. Easy in and out but expect a wait during prime times. The prices seem to be getting high.

Excellent restaurant for a national chain. Hospitality and service were welcoming and with an excellent menu made dining a pleasant experience. Our food was tasty with the warm biscuits a nice touch. Expect a wait during prime time dinner hour, better to go a little early.

The food is just gross. Just prepackaged and thrown in with gross sauces. They did not even have the regular sauce that comes with crab cakes. The crab cakes themselves were the worst I have ever eaten. I have had better ones from a grocery store deli. My mom had the catfish, it was nothing special. The only reason I... More

The cedar biscuits were warm and soft and very good. My shrimp was not doughy but very crispy an well seasoned. My wife's blackened fish was also very good. It was a pleasant surprise even the french fries were good. Service was excellent and we only had to wait the 15-20 minutes that we were told upon arriving. However, this... More

The Red Lobster, a seafood chain restaurant, is better than "average" but certainly would not rate a "very good" rating. The seafood is pretty good for a chain restaurant but does not compare to the better independent seafood restaurants in the city.

Hadn't been to Red Lobster in months. We had an early dinner with excellent service. The extensive menu (revised recently) features seafood with an abundance of preparations. The small biscuits are great. Both the Ultimate Feast and the Lobster Linguini were tasty, fresh and satisfying.

Visited here during a weekend stay in KC. Wait staff was great and attentive. Food was delicious and the always good cheddar bay biscuits did not disappoint. Everything was cooked well and had good flavor. Good Mid-Range dinner spot.

The restaurat was average, meal too pricey, biscuits great as usual but not that good of service for a later dinner. Not unique or memorable enough, disappointing!
