“4 courses for $16.99....good food-great deal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Chose the clam chowder for starters. Thick, rich, a couple of pieces of potatoes, and a few clam pieces. It needed more clam flavor.... but very creamy. Second course was the Caesar salad. RL has downsized the salad servings but it was crisp and the dressing was very good. The third course was the habanero coconut shrimp bites with coleslaw and the sweet citrus shrimp over rice pilaf......nice sized portions and wonderful, refreshing tastes! The HCS was spicy, sweet, and the crunch and sweetness of the coleslaw made it a perfect tasting match! The SCS was grilled to perfection and the pilaf was tender and another great match up of tastes and textures. My daughter got the tilapia with roasted vegetables...one of the daily specials....it was served in parchment paper and was steamed over fresh veggies and rice pilaf. It was tender, delicious, fresh, and citrusy. For dessert, which was included in the $16.99 special, I ordered the brownie a la mode. The brownie is served warm with vanilla ice cream and chocolate and caramel syrups over it. It was very good. Our server, Philip, put a candle in the brownie and lit it for me because he heard it was my birthday but I requested no singing, etc. He was very attentive and refilled our drinks when they were half-full. For a franchise, our lunch was delicious and satisfying! Can't wait to go back!

“This was my Dad's birthday choice this year....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

For dinner on my Dad's birthday he wanted to go to Red Lobster.... He had the three kinds of shrimp, I had crab legs and my boyfriend had Tilapia I think. The entire meal was just as usual ... fresh fish, good service from happy waiters, and the price is very reasonable for the menu.

“While prices have gone up, this was a great visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

The chain periodically runs an "all you can eat" shrimp deal of 4 different kinds for $16.99, & while I had this last year at their Phoenix location just outside the Metrocenter mall & that went well, I had not tried it here. What a nice surprise.

I went on a week night at 6pm & was seated immediately, the friendly waiter brought out all the requested items right away (a simple salad with double dressing & 2 warm biscuits) & the first 2 selections of shrimp & mashed potatoes. Now the shrimp are small (e.g. not jumbo), but there is no limit. When the waiter brought the entree, he asked if he could start the next selection cooking, assuming I wanted more, since they take a few minutes to make. He asked this each time which made the wait for the next item minimal. I ordered 3 more shrimp orders & was full. The place was clean, the service was great & the food was excellent for the price.

“Canadians enjoy Red Lobster”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We come to Arizona once a year or so and always hot the Red Lobster first! Love those biscuits and the seafood choices and combinations.
We were there early, just after 5pm and wow the place was busy - folks eat early here!
Seated immediately, the obligatory chatting happened, and our server Jourdan appeared right away. She was very friendly and attentive, got the orders exactly correct and efficiently served.
Did feel a bit rushed out at the end after saying no to dessert....maybe would have said yes to a decaf if asked, but the bill was produced right away. No big deal, away we went.
No huge over the top experience, just a good meal with good service.
