It was a late decision to have a celebratory dinner. There was an unknown number of guests. A phone call to the restaurant and they were able to accommodate us. The staff was very professional and helpful. From sitting us in an area where we could hold conversations to keeping our beverages full. The food is good and the menu... More

My mom and I stopped in yesterday for a late afternoon snack. We love the cheese biscuits they serve, they are so yummy. These are given to you right away like chips and salsa at a Mexican restaurant. We ordered the lobster thin crust pizza (appetizer) it was so tasty and really hit the spot. They serve so much food...

My young grandkids love crab so I took them to Red Lobster for lunch. Much to my surprise, they had crab on the children's menu along with other kid favorites like macaroni and cheese. My grandkids took the crab and they ate it all. Amazing! They had just as much fun getting it out of the shell. I had crab... More

The food is reasonably prices, a menu that keeps you flipping back and forth to find your meal as there are so many choices, the seafood was perfect, scallops, shrimp, lobster. I must acknowledge the young staff, cheery, welcoming, respectful, and kept everything going quite smoothly. Special thanks to Ryan who was our server, he was excellent.

Good food accompanied by some of the best wait staff I have encountered in a long time. Very attentive service team coordinated by our waitress. Her menu suggestions were excellent. If I lived in Lacey or Olympia, this could become one of my favorite restaurants.

When you go to a restaurant that specializes in seafood one would expect the seafood to be at a minimum average with some items on the sumptuous side. This is the second time we have tried this restaurant in the last six months and this visit thankfully was better than the last. Six months ago the shrimp sampler had bland... More

It was right at dinner time and a bit backed up; since I was alone I offered to eat in the lounge. There were two other couples there, but it was obvious that there wasn't actually a person stationed in there. Every little bit somebody would come in and check on people but I actually almost left because I was... More

We enjoyed ourselves. When we first got there the wait time was less than what they told us. That in it self made me feel they knew their business. I thought the complementary hot biscuits prior to and during the meal were delicious. If you like scallops, order them here. Mine were tender and succulent. Very tasty! And our waitress... More

I am a bit of a seafood snob and their food would not pass for cuisine, but it was good. Not great, but good. It is what it is. Decent, average food. The service was good, and the atmosphere is good for families. A teenager in our group ate 1 1/2 lbs. of crab and was very, very happy. My... More
