Several family members had the endless shrimp. The waitress was friendly and encouraged our ordering. This made for a very pleasant dining experience. Although it was a busy Friday night, our server was very attentive.

We went here for a birthday day on a Sunday evening. We were quickly seated. Waitress was pleasant. We were very well taken care of. I had the surf and turf with the steak and crab cakes. I asked for a medium cooked steak and it was perfect. There were several other families but it was not overly crowded. Restaurant... More

We stopped in for drink's and to share an appetizer but we were appalled by the poor service. It took an unreasonable amount of time to order our drinks and when they arrived, they were never refilled even after we asked. The appetizer wasn't cooked all the way and the waitress didn't take it off our bill. We used to... More

Because it was "Lobsterfest," I had the seafood platter. My partner had the broiled flounder. Both dinners were prepared well and tasty. This location seemed better than other Red Lobster locations we have dined in in the past. Service was good, too.

Thankful they feed us as we showed up at 9:30 pm! Our waitress was very accommodating and nice. It was your Red Lobster usually food. Only disappointment was the Clam Chowder no clams wondering if by mistake they gave us Potato Chowder it was still good just wasn't what we order. All in all we were feed and left not... More

I tried the biscuits and I think they need to decrease the amount of topping on it. I think there was more butter and salt (topping) than bread. As for the house salad with ranch, the lettuce and cucumbers was nice, brown and wilted. The dressing tasted ok. Finally, my main entrée was lobster in shrimp scampi sauce and pasta.... More

What can you really say, it's a Red Lobster just like every other Red Lobster - mediocre, overpriced seafood for people who think Olive Garden is authentic Italian cuisine. Unfortunately the seafood options in Sumter are severely limited.
