“Rude, unprofessional”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

This restaurant is rude and unprofessional. Reality TV has corrupted boundaries. Not going into detail, but the manager told me that I "shouldn't be upset about unwarranted comments from the hosts/waitstaff because my smile is too pretty to be upset". Never going here again, will be going to Matthews anytime I need a seafood fix. No professionalism or respect for a paying customer.

“Great Food/Staff - but be prepared to wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

If you plan to come hear after 5:00 on a weekend be prepared for a wait as this restaurant is right across from a busy mall. The food is great and you can easily put your name on a list and go shopping for awhile. However, if you are coming in prepared to immediately sit and place your order it is best to get there early or you will be waiting for awhile. I do enjoy this restaurant and definitely recommend.

“Nice Experience, Courteous Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

As others have also indicated, based on Red Lobster being a national chain, you knew what you were getting before going. The Red Lobster in Pineville was much like any other; however, the staff was its shining star. All members of the staff were courteous, attentive, and offered valuable suggestions. We had 2 year old twins and older sister, who is 3, with us. Food was served promptly and everyone, including the children, were very well satisfied. Great food and excellent staff couple to make a wonderful experience for all to enjoy.

“A typical Red Lobster Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

As usual, meals a constantly good and good value, this is typical of Red Lobster restaurants, the menu is very large therefore plenty to choose from, still for some reason, again typical of Red Lobster, they make you wait when there are several tables empty, I really do not understand this what appears to me to be a Red Lobster policy!! not good...
