The cheesy biscuits are as awesome as ever, but.... The overall quality of the food at Red Lobster has gone down. The food is lower quality and noodles are greasy, and prices have gone up. The service at this Red Lobster has also gone down hill. It's not horrible, but definitely could be better.

I have a positive feeling about Darden restaurants. This is a good company and I have had good experiences at the Capital Grill and Olive Garden. This was my first visit to a Red Lobster in a long time and I was really disappointed. First of all--and this is hardly a perception limited to Red Lobster--the food on the plate looked nothing like the food in TV commercials. Then, shrimp were shriveled and overcooked and the breading was tired and too sharply flavored to enjoy the shrimp. That said, many of the other customers seemed quite pleased with the overworked presentations. I realize it must be hard to find, train, and keep help in small towns but more of an effort needs to be made, especially in getting servers to have a feel for service and working as members of a team, not just in going by the numbers. The more experienced servers seemed to spend a great deal of time chatting with customers known to them. Up to a point, this is an attractive quality, but not when there are tables waiting for service. The atmosphere in this location was shopworn. There was more than one place where a tattered carpet was held together with tape.

My dad has some health issues and we went into the restaurant ahead to make arrangements for a table and the staff immediately helped accommodate us in EVERY way. Gabby, our server was exceptionally professional and overall we were so impressed. Added to that the chef must have been having a great day because our meals were excellent. It was a pleasant experience from beginning to end. Thank you, again, employees!

Best place for seafood around here. From the drinks to the all the food it's just delicious! The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. I recommend Red Lobster if you're a seafood lover and would like an enjoyable environment to dine.
