My wife loves picking crab. I don't. When she heard about Red Lobster's "Crab Fest," she wanted to go. I, as the ever-accommodating hubby, acquiesced. It started poorly. My New England Clam Chowder was heavy on milk, low on clams and flavor. Worst I've ever had. She had a salad, comprised entirely of iceberg lettuce and a few teeny grape... More

This was my first time eating at this particular restaurant. We had a party of five. Our waitress, Amber S, was fantastic. She was able to keep everyone served, satisfied and smiling. She knew how to add those touches that created fine dining. Two of the members in my party didn't like the taste of the tea and the waitress... More

We had excellent service. Best salad I have ever had at a Red Lobster! Everything was cooked just right and tasted great. My mom had given up on eating at a Red Lobster because her last few experiences in other cities were not good. She admitted she would go back to this one any time I had to have their... More

Red Lobster is predictably a decent place to eat. The food is predictably good and the service is always prompt. The coconut shrimp is good and is served with a pineapple/yogurt sauce which is really good. The cheddar biscuits are famous. Beer prices are a bit steep.

My husband and I haven't been to this Red Lobster in 15 years, and now I remember why. The restaurant was practically empty, yet service was slow at best. Drink orders took 15 minutes, which is inexcusable even on a busy evening. Biscuits had to be asked for, and when they arrived, practically slid out of our hands because they... More

Went to Red Lobster for my yearly endless shrimp feast. The previous years I went to other Red Lobster restaurants. This year the shrimp were cooked very good, but I only received 5 shrimp on every re-order. The past years I received 10 shrimp per re-order. Not sure if this is location related only, or if Red Lobster started this... More

Had a weekday lunch with my spouse to celebrate our Anniversary. They were not busy and we were sat immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and did a great job! Our food was hot/fresh and timing was perfect. The atmosphere was nice (looked newly remodeled). Music was a little loud, but overall was a good experience. Definitely will return.

I love the new look and feel of this restaurant. We came here with our parent's for a nice dinner, the staff were very helpful (we had our 4 month old with us).

It's ridiculous. We were refused an accommodation of 20 people today at 4pm! This is ridiculous! Will never dine here again.

The Coconut Shrimp appetizer, Cheese Biscuits and Salad were delicious. Their Crab Alfredo was tasty but heavy and surrounded in a pool of butter! My wife & I took most of our Crab Alfredo home and drained the excess butter off before being able to eat much of the dish. The Service was good as always!
