I tried the ultimate festival, which is a dish that includes lobster, crab, shrimps as well as salad. The Lobster was very delicious, it included scampi shrimp and a small portion of steamed broccoli. The service over all was excellent.

Such good food, served quickly by our server, Mary. She is awesome. Very attentive and knew that we had a coupon, came back and gave hubby a refill on his ice tea without him asking. She is the best.

I can't recall a worst meal anywhere, and it's difficult to understand how they could stay in business. The clam chowder was out of a can - at least they took it out of the can before serving it. And the house Merlot was Sutter Home, which is a cheap wine, but cost $8.49 per glass - unbelievable! The entre... More

Good mean of Salmon, Lobster tail and Shrimp. Great meal, fast friendly service. Location was good. Easy to get in and out of. What else do you need?

Good food , looks like the menu , clean looking even the bathrooms. If the bathrooms are clean I feel a little better about the place. Food was good , they don't have a great selection of beer for a place in Oregon, but have been here a few times and haven't been disappointed and I am a picky kind... More

Consistently excellent burgers and steak fries that just demand another. I like the fries with a honey-mustard dip but others are available. We ordered onion rings and were not disappointed: the crust remained crunchy to the last ring. With the steak fires, the onion rings were "gilding the lily" but sometimes you just don't care and eat. The never ending... More

I joined our work crew for lunch. We arrived a little before noon and were seated immediately. I chose the soup & salad lunch special, selecting chowder for the soup. The salad includes wood-grilled shrimp and I selected a balsamic vinaigrette dressing, in keeping with my diet-conscious mode of late. The salad was delicious, a fairly typical salad mix with...

I cannot say enough about the flavors offered for their Endless Shrimp. My favorite was the Garlic Shrimp Scampi, but Shrimp Linguini Alfredo and Pineapple Habanero Coconut Bites are excellent as well. I was disappointed I could only order one refill/flavor at a time. That made us spend about twice the amount of time there that we normally would have.

This was my first visit to this area, and I was not disappointed. I had been looking forward to some surf and turf for a few days, so this was an extra treat for my birthday weekend. Yes; There was wine and ice cream. I was seated immediately upon arrival. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly. I... More

We have gone to this Red Lobster several times. The CrabFest is coming to an end. They were out of King Crab and Opilio Crab. The snow crab was good although it wasn't cleaned as nicely as I would like it. We also had the Lobster Bisque. Very tasty!!! We found the wait staff was slow this time and that... More
