Went to Red Lobster near the Lake Buena Vista area when we stayed in that area last year and were very disappointed after having such a lovely meal at the restaurant in San Diego. Decided to try the one near Wet & Wild and were pleased to find the standard was on a par with San Diego. We both had the same meal as we had in San Diego. I had the crab/lobster/prawns combo and the kind waitress helped me with cracking the crab legs and my husband had the haddock which was delicious. The drinks were also very nice as were the cheese scones and Caesar salad.
Went again later in the week but they seemed to be understaffed in the late afternoon. We'd had a bit of a wait to get a table but the waiter was very apologetic and attentive and made sure we had an excellent meal.
Would certainly recommend this restaurant if you like seafood. The prices are very reasonable and we will come again when we next visit Orlando.

I could not believe what they served us and expected us to eat. There were a lot of people there so I wonder if it was just me. I couldn't eat the food. Back to the drawing board for Darden

A really good value restaurant with delicious food and great service. The portions are well balanced and it has a varied menu for a less pricey night out.

Tasty food, OK service, shame we were rushed in and out.

Visited the Red Lobster on Formosa Gardens Blvd Kissimmee Florida, Friday night, arrived about 8pm.

4 adults and 1 child

Was given a pager and informed that wait would be about 45 min, if we were prepared to sit in a booth with a person on the end.
Actual wait time was a lot shorter in truth and we were seated and water was brought over.
Server was pleasant and friendly, but a little inpatient, when we had questions about the food.

2 of us had meal deal, soup, salad, entree from a selected list and desert, about $15 each. Soup (clam chowder)was warm and not hot and pasta sauces come in pre made and can not be changed. Portion size were LARGE. I am a good eater, could not finish the main, (cocoanut prawn pasta).

Other 2 had standard starters from the menu, once ageing portions were good and for the main the other 2had the ultimate feast lobster, snow crab claw plus others...... Very nice.

Meal deal deserts we good, cheese cake and cream.

Service, As soon as the cutlery was put down plates were cleared, and the next course brought out. Was very rushed and bill was given with our desert.

It is true you get what you pay for, but Red Lobster Sell it cheap and get profit via volume, and as such the overall experience was not so great.

Red Lobster - please confirm your identity, restaurant or seafood diner.

Excellent food and service. We had steak and shrimp and it was really excellent food. Service was right on and they were there for anything you need.
