“EXCELLENT FOOD PRESENTATION AND TASTE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

This restaurant or company employs friendly people and the food taste and presentation is excellent...The price is totally right for the service. The ambience of the place is creatively saturated with great taste and class that relate to the theme of their cuisine...We always celebrate most of our very important events in this place...This Gresham branch became a part of our tradition because of their great service...

“average quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Bit pricey for the quality. My brother, who was with me, said the seafood basket he had at Elmer's the day before was better. pushy servers too.

“Was hoping for something fresher.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Over all it was just ok, not like my usual spot in Beaverton. Some of the food items looked like they had seen too much "warmer" time. For the price one pays for sea food, you'd think it would appear to be fresher. Was not impressed at all. Crab was too soft to crack. Shrimp dishes had faded color, lobster tail was tougher than usually should be, I like good eats, I don't mind paying good money for good food. I think the price should reflect the quality. Not the name.

“The Best of the Reds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

We have, over the years, tried Red Lobsters in many places. This one, for some reason that has to do with taste and value, is the best we ever visited. We were impressed by the freshness of the different foods, but mostly, for the amount they put in their dishes. I do not know if it was that day but they were in fine form. Perhaps the one dish that did not meet the challenge but still was not bad was the grilled lobster, and two kinds of shrimp which sold for almost $25. Everything else tasted very good and the left overs tasted even better at a later time. It is not my habit to praise franchises but this time the Red Lobster in Gresham, Oregon, did leave a very favorable impression.
Could it be that because Oregon has a lot of nice fresh fish it tasted better than most other Red Lobsters? We'll never know for we did not ask and left it at that. Even their Key Lime Pie was not too shabby.
Once you leave a restaurant and everyone agrees they had a very decent meal you have a winner and this place became the winner for us. Yes, I know it is a franchise, but for the money they did deliver a fine fare. Total for 4 people? $118+ before tip. Our server was very much in his place and in his best game and he got rewarded, I like to think, better than usual. 4 Stars and shinning at that!
