Red Lobster has been losing steam since Darden restaurant group dropped them from the roster. The food is made with disdain and it is barley edible . The service, if you want to call it that, is nonexistent . As a former server that knows the steps of service, I am so disappointed when I see a server not even... More

I was there Saturday 4/1/17, the bartender was disgusting. First of all he was eating out of a bag and putting his fingers in his mouth. Then as he made frosty drinks he would lick his fingers and move on to the next thing, cutting fruit making drinks. Then he was playing in his ear (mind you he never NEVER... More

I've been a part of the service industry for 20 years and must say this is the worst service I've ever had. I am critical when I dine out, but the basics weren't even delivered. And it was a special night out for my mother and I because it is tradition for us to go here when I'm visiting in... More

My friend and I plus 2 kids arrived at 5:30pm on a Wednesday night. There was a 10 minute wait we were told. There were two ladies at the host stand keeping things in order. We sat near the lobster tank while we waited for a table and a lot of customers came in in that short time. While waiting... More

Was very busy when we arrived. Seemed understaffed and employees were harried. Bar service was prompt though, even with only 2 bartenders. Wait time was less than expected for a table. But our server was extremely unorganized and we had to almost prompt her for each item. The restaurant looked like it was unkempt and poorly managed. The food was... More

Went with friends for lunch on a weekend. Tried the tilapia tacos, and the All You Can Eat Shrimp deal (Korean bbq shrimp and shrimp linguine). Biscuits are always the best!!! Rest was good too. Our waiter, Malik (I think that's how you spell his name), was GREAT! He was attentative, smiled all the time, great attitude, and was also... More

My current consulting assignment is in the Milwaukee, WI area, so I decided to try one of my favorite fish restaurants. I selected the Red Lobster in Wauwatosa, WI, which is near my hotel, but this visit proved to be very unfortunate. I entered the restaurant at about 4:30 pm on a Monday, and told the hostess that I was... More

Got there right at opening at 11 a.m. so got a table right away. This place is always busy. Food was prompt, hot and delicious. And those biscuits are so yummy! Our server was excellent and the portions good and price was right.

The service was excellent we had a server named Montreal and he did a awesome job considering it was sweetest day. The way for a table was thirty-five minutes but we was seated sooner. The food was great
