“Red Lobster still good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Their warm biscuits are delicious (although probably high in calories) and seafood pasta also. (Prefer crab cakes elsewhere, however.) Service was very good, as are prices.

“Good Seafood Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The service is very good and the food is fresh and tasty. It is better to get there before 7:00PM on weekdays and weekends to avoid a long wait.

“Typical red lobster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

This red lobster was like all others--if you normally like red lobster you will like this one. Service was good and seafood was very acceptable.

“Go to Frederick MD Red Lobster / Much Better !!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

This is a "Tale of Two Cities." Huge difference between the cooking staff at the Red L. in Gaithersburg versus the Red L. in Frederick. We have been to both many times. All was good except nasty cook. Wife has food allergy to garlic; bummer! Last visit to Gaithersburg we asked the "new" server to check with the cook if xxxx could be prepared without garlic. Server came back with message, "... every thing we have has garlic in it." The cheddar biscuits can be ordered without garlic, and while we were talking to the server a back kitchen server showed up with NON-garlic cheddar biscuits. We carefully explained to the server that we knew that the fish & chips could be done without garlic and ordered the same. The f. & c. came but very overdone - like the cook wanted revenge. All else was good. Frederick Red L. much better.
