“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Always great food and service here! Very good drinks at the bar and we had the most wonderful, friendly bartender! I would go back JUST to sit at the bar!
Seafood is always yummy, biscuits are the best! Our server was friendly and very attentive. I don't think I've ever been to this restaurant and had a bad experience. Great job Red Lobster!!!

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Overall it was an enjoyable meal, but there were a few disappointing aspects. It is fairly small, compared to most Red Lobsters I have visited, and has very low ceilings. So, it is not spacious and open and relaxing in that way. Every piece of silverware was dirty and had spots and smudges and soap residue on them. The server, Donna, was apologetic, and replaced them with clean ones immediately, and she was friendly, professional, and attentive.
The shrimp items and sides we ordered were tasty and good, but the fish was not fresh tasting, and smelled like low tide at Coney Island.

“Excellent Seafood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Excellent seafood. Outstanding menu/selections. Great service. Good coffee. Prices seem slighty high as opposed to other establishments in the area. Over all - a must stop.

“You don't have any fish?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Was quite surprised when we went out on a Monday night that they were all out of the fish special. They were also missing some other menu items because they hadn't restocked after the busy weekend. The service was adequate but all in all not good value for your money. I spent 7 weeks in Rochester last year and did not return to Red Lobster. It is however almost always busy so plan ahead.
