“waitress screwed up”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

I was in Pensacola for a Jeff Dunham show. We stopped at Red Lobster for dinner. I ordered the shrimp alfredo and asked for broccoli to be added. My dish came out with no alfredo sauce at all. I sent it back and at the end of my stay they did give me a to go bag with the shrimp pasta and a container of sauce.Not enough, asked for more Thank goodness I had a side salad and appetisers and not to forget their famous biscuits! I would like to see more awareness of special orders. Thank you.

“Red Lobster always delivers fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We sat near the bar area in a comfortable booth with very subtle lighting which was very conducive to having a nice quiet dinner. The noise level was low and that allowed normal conversational volume. Some places can get fairly loud and you have to shout to hear each other.

I had a very attractively made colada cocktail while waiting for our food. The salads were brought out within a few minutes along with their famous biscuits. Food was delivered quickly, accurately, attractively and was delicious. The meals were served on over-sized rectangle plates which always makes you think you are special. The waitstaff was very attentive. We ate and took home some doggy bags as none of could finish our meals.

“Food was good,nothing spectacular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

We decided to go to lunch today at Red lobster. I ordered Cajun shrimp pasta and my husband ordered the endless shrimp. The food was ok. The biscuits seemed different - not sure if they've changed the recipe or something. They were still good though:) the fried shrimp seemed a little soggy. Shrimp scampi was good.
Our waitress was very attentive

“GAVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Gave Red Lobster in Pensacola, Fl a second chance last week and my food looked good, but had no flavor. My friend and I both had stomach problems after we left. My stomach is still not back to good. I can't go back again. The meal was also not the price advertised on television. we paid over fifty dollars for two meals with only coffee and water to drink. not a good second chance. won't go back.
