“Never Again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Staff seemed disinterested until it came to 'tip time' Food was nothing like the description on the menu and 3 of the 5 maincourses were not eaten. When we pointed our issues out to the waitress the response was a shrug of the shoulders, Hot Pasta dish was cold when it arrived, one hot meal arrived late when the rest of us were ready to order desert. BBq chicken was more like a Mexican spicy chicken... the list goes on. very poor !!!

“Surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I stopped going to Red Lobster years ago...but limited choice brought me back on this trip - in fact it was good enough to return to for lunch 3 times. The menu was varied enough and the food was tasty. I particularly enjoyed the fresh fish catch. Our service was exceptional inclusive of the management checking in on us at every visit.

“Food so so , service blah.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

We went for the lobsterfest and was VERY disappointed. The lobster was overcooked and tough, and the pasta was undercooked.
And the staff needs to watch restaurant shows. Restaurant 101: Do NOT serve entrees while the customer is still eating their salad. Do not serve desert while the customer is still eating their entrees. HELLO

We felt very rushed on a Tuesday night, with half the restaurant empty.
It will be a VERY long time before I go back.. The price does not justify a mediocre meal.

“Not up to Red Lobster Standards”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

The place was clean and the food was up to Red Lobster standards, but the service made such a bad impression on us that we will drive a little more to eat at other Red Lobsters in the future. This could have been a one time deal, but the server indicated he'd worked there for a while so maybe not. It was all about what the server wanted and he didn't care what we wanted. Orders were wrong, (some of our party was told what to order!), service was slow, drink refills were none existent, it was even an issue to get him to pick up our card so we could pay the bill and leave. We came straight from the airport so it was early and few diners were in the place. No excuse for bad service.

“Food was great, service...OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Our food was great. The server wasn't awesome, one item was forgotten, and he seemed a bit frazzled. it was pretty busy, however, so we weren't too upset.
