Loved the coconut shrimp and pineapple dipping sauce, and those cheesy biscuits are very tasty! The location is good, walking distance to our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express on Busch Blvd. It happened to be a rainy evening and we appreciated the warm and cozy atmosphere, good food, and friendly service.

I think this is only the second or third "poor" review I have written. I love Red Lobster, but not this one. Maybe it is because this restaurant survives off captive tourist and doesn't care about repeat business, but this food was definitely not up to Red Lobster standards. The biscuits were old, dry, and tuff, so I sent them back and the friendly waitress brought us Red Lobster's signature fresh ones. When I ordered the new lobster pot pie, I asked her to have the cook top it with fresh biscuit dough....I received it topped with biscuit dough so tough, I could not cut it. My friend fried seafood combo was prepared in old grease and also didn't finish her meal. This was a little after noon and the restaurant was packed. If you want
good seafood, go just down to Fowler Avenue and eat at Shells Seafood Restaurant. We will next time

Food was ok very heavy and there is nothing light to choose here.
Staff were friendly however the area is quite seedy ,we were staying at the Holiday Inn next door after visiting Busch Gardens.
There is a cop doing his tour in there or off duty security with the cruiser outside all night,very off putting not sure why he was there ut something must have happened recently.

First night we ate in the restaurant , service was OK not too special but the bar area was nice so we had a after dinner cocktail. Second night after 10 hrs at the park we went straight to the bar and the service was much better than the restaurant . we had drinks , unlimited biscuits and our appetizer all in less than 20 mins . The bar staff were very friendly and Crystal made some super cocktails
