well, I like to eat at red lobster. I was a little disappointed. The appearance outside was dreadful. The lawn was uncut, and the parking lot was not clean. My granddaughter ordered the chicken smoky and they didn’t have any of the smoky bacon dressing...to go on it and the chicken was not good however, I ordered the dragon calamari and it was delicious. Our waitress was very kind considerate courteous, probably will not eat here again for a whileMore

Do not waste your precious time or money on this sub-par restaurant. We were in from out of town, and this restaurant was such a DISAPPOINTMENT. The chicken salad was so tough that it was INEDIBLE, the service was sooooooo SLOW, and even after we...asked for the check multiple times, we STILL WAITED another 20 minutes to receive it. FURTHERMORE, after we told the manager our disappointment, he was very defensive and refused to acknowledge any fault. Ugh. Waste of an evening.More

Red Rocks Cafe definitely rocks! The staff are attentive and helpful. The atmosphere is lovely. The food was superb! My husband had the gumbo and ordered it extra spicy. I could smell the spices wafting off his plate. Great flavor and a large portion. He...sopped up the gumbo with a fluffy buttered biscuit. I ordered chicken and waffles. The chicken’s breading was crisp and great to drag through the maple syrup. The waffles were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Just delicious! Cinnamon apples were a nice accompaniment to the dish.More

We have eaten at Red Rocks a lot over the years. The service is always great, but tonight’s experience went way above and beyond our expectations. Noah (with support from Keaton) provided amazing service by anticipating our needs, engaging with our kids, and having a...great attitude. This was all while also serving a very large party in the room next door. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner thanks to these two great servers.More

I had heard great reviews. I was anxious to try it. I was a solo diner. I had no reservations. The restaurant was not crowded. The hostess had wanted to seat me directly next to the entrance. I had requested another seat. Now to the...food and service. The waiter was excellent. He had made very helpful dinner recommendations. I had selected the fried calamari and crusted grouper. The two dishes were very tasty. I would of given a 5 rating if I was seated properly.More
