“OK but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

It's a chain, and we're from ME. We're demanding about seafood and Red Lobster doesn't cut it. That Red Lobster was under renovation, and therefore, not as up-to-speed as could be. The staff was pretty relaxed or untrained, and although they made an effort, they did not do anything special. The music was loud. The floor not very clean.

“Just your average Red Lobster”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Went for lunch while there on business. My appetizer of stuff mushrooms was over cooked, tasted old but the soup and salad was good. The waitress was friendly and provided good customer service. Conviently located in a shopping center. Not sure I would return if I am in the area again, just depends on what I have a taste for ... that day I wanted clam chowder.

“Poor service and quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

The service was slow and the food not up to standard. In an effort to hold current prices they have allowed the quality and portion size to suffer. The ads give a false picture of what to expect

“Frozen Fish!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Red Lobster advertising does not live up to the reality. Frozen entrees and lackluster sides. Long wait for a pretty pedestrian meal. Bread and drinks good, but very noisy. I'd try Olive Garden instead.
