A variety of sea food including lobster, crab, shrimp served with delicious sauced. Drinks are unlimited, so sip on your coke till you pee :) A very nice ambient, though a little chilly. I wonder if they adjust the A/C so low so people just eat and go?

Young man took our dinner order and waited 20 mins. For salad and about another 15 mins. For biscuits and wasn't asked for a refill until another server happened to pass by! Waited for our dinner at least 40 mins. After receiving our biscuits! It wasn't that busy that night.maybe server was just having a bad night!!

Pretty good place if you crave seafood. Extensive menu, comfortable seating, good food, well stocked bar, friendly service and convenient parking. They have gone up in price quite a bit lately but portions are still the same size so it feels fair enough. My family have a few picky eaters (elderly and kids) and restaurant staff go out of their... More

This was my husband's first time dining at a red lobster. We were both wowed by the food and the service! We ordered the 4 course special and we were rolling ourselves home with to go boxes too!

Dined here for a quick early dinner on a Friday night. Started with a dozen oysters on the half shell- they were huge and not exactly what I was looking for- so huge that they kinda elicit a gag reflex. I was expecting some small, briney west coast types so this was disappointing. The waitress saw that we weren't eating... More

Great serving of really good seafood at prices less than half that of an expensive posh place. Lobster, crab claws and prawns all tried. Wine list limited but OK Good service and friendly atmosphere

I'm not a huge Red Lobster fan but with limited steakhouse around our hotel so we gave it a try. The steak was great, the husband loved his popcorn shrimp, salads were good. Service was awesome. We had Jillian and she took care of us. Pricey but good choice.
