Assigned waitress didn't come to our table. Young man whose table it wasn't took us. Food was hot and tasty. Service in the beginning not the best. Thank goodness someone cared.

After many years of not eating at a Red Lobster, my family decided to eat there on a trip through Charlottesville. The service was good and the portions quite large and tasty. No complaints. Good food was provided which made the visit also very good!

I love Red Lobster and have only had 1 visit to this one that was not up to par. Best waitress there is Pam. Always ask for her when we go.
