I love there biscuits and that's what brings me back here a few times per year. For a Seafood restaurant it has the worst seafood. Everything is frozen and has that pasty substance between the breeding and fish. The shrimp has a different taste as...More

Whenever you show up with 10 people you know it will be a true test! The service was great and the food was the standard Red Lobster fare... A decent choice if you can handle the chain restaurant feel!

went here a while back, spent over $25 per person and there was hair in the food. thing I really disliked (besides the hair) is that it is so dark in there. It seems they do not want you to actually see your food. Wont...More
