“Good service...once you're seated.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We arrived for early dinner and although there were several empty tables, we were told the wait would be 10 minutes. The food was great as usual and service very timely and police...once we were finally seated. :)

“Quick bite, Quick service.”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Server was personable, Brittish was her name I believe. Issue with drink, manager acted on issue super fast. Lunch specials are delicious. I got the lobster grilled sandwich. Biscuits are still the best and keep me coming back.

“Service not great, lobster tail terribla”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

My last trip, service was very slow and people were just standing around not doing anything. My first time eating lobster there it was tough and not very good. I love Red Lobster, but have had a few disappointed dinners this past year. Wish I could get better service and fresher lobster, since we are on the Gulf Coast.

“Good food but hard to compete with others”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

With so many quality seafood places here on the Gulf Coast, Red Lobster has a hard time competing. That's not to say that it does a poor job, but one can hardly compare it to a privately owned location on the water. For what it is, however, it meets expectations and aside from the occasional long wait, it is worth dining at.

“Great Servise”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We stayed in the Marriott Residence and decided to go to the Red Lobster for dinner, we were greeted with a smile and shown our table - introduced to our waitress and had a long and interesting chat with Kayla who was a first year student at the local university.

The service we received from Kayla was exceptional and made for a wonderful evening, the food was well presented and plentiful with a wonderful array of flavors at a good value for money level

Great night thanks
