Love the shrimp. Spot on trying to get more orders in the kitchen to keep shrimp on the table. Manager brought one round of shrimp, did not take away dishes we were finished with. Waiter came 2 or 3 times, did not take dishes away until asked to. Had to ask to get drinks filled when they were walking away from table empty handed. Good shrimp, but felt shrimped out on the service.

Thank Andrew C

The food was very good and the service just as good. The manager was very nice to check to make sure everything was ok.

This is consistently good food. The amenities could be better, hence, i do not like the bathroom (women's), but the manager walks around and checks the temperature and seeks input from the partrons. I like this one.

My husgband and I go to the Red Lobster in Ames frequently. We like it better than the Des Moines location, becuase the wait staff is always fabulous. The restaurant is always very busy, especially on weekends, and there is usually a wait. But, it is worth it! The food is always good, and the service great.

Had a great lunch in Ames at the Red Lobster with our daughter who attends ISU. We enjoy our visits to this restaurant and once again this time were not disapointed.
