There have been many visits to a Red Lobster in my life, most with my family. Today was a solo trip during lunch. This restaurant has turned around since we stopped coming over 5 years ago. One of the problems was the burning down of the NW restaurant, but this NE location has also not meet expectations. Not so today as expectations were surpassed. The greeter at the front saw me getting out of my car and was waiting for me with a menu. The server was prompt to take my drink order. The lunch crowd was just starting. The delivery of the drink and biscuits a few short minutes later with the difficult decision of the main. Difficult because the specials menu is not in expensive. One of the issues in the past was that feeling of being, um, baited and switched. The lunch I ordered, the New Orleans's Salmon with a Tabasco shrimp Beurre Blanc sauce, was well prepared, served hot, fresh and well balanced flavors. Paying the bill was also a good experience where the check and the payment method was done quickly. The only complaint I have is that I felt I was meeting the mob in their restaurant. That dark interior with dark accessories. And lack of natural light. Not a lunch type place environment.
