“Go for Lunch and Save...”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

Haven't been to Red Lobster for years because it became "expensive fast food" with small portions. Due to it being convenient we decided to give it a try again. Definitely go for lunch -- you still get the salad, delicious cheesy-garlic biscuits, and a nice-size portion of fish. You can choose two items for $9.99 or get fried flounder for $8.50. The dinner prices are higher ($15 and up) and fresh fish is about $20 or more. We did enjoy our meal -- it was hot, tasted good, was a larger portion than it had been in the past, and we had a wonderful waitress with great service. We were seated quickly (even with a wait). The kids menu is about $5-6 and had a nice selection which included drink. We'd go again.

“A Good Time but More Expensive”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

We recently had a family visit to this Red Lobster. All in all, it was a good time, with good food.
A tip – call before you go to use the ‘Call Ahead Seating’ , I am glad we did as it saved over 30 minutes of wait time.
The service was excellent. Our waiter was very accommodating, efficient and friendly. The salads and drinks came quickly, and the drinks were refilled regularly.
Our food after a short wait, it was hot, fresh and well prepared. Everything was very good, and we were happy with our visit.
The prices have gone up since our last visit, which is always disappointing. We won’t be going back as frequently as before. Still it was a good time and a good meal.

“Last time for this place!”
Reviewed December 26, 2010

Very disappointing. Three of us chose Red Lobster for our Christmas Eve. dinner.
We didn't want a huge amount of food so we ordered a smaller shrimp/scallop combo dinner. The shrimp were very tiny and the scallops were no larger than a women's fingernail. Since we wanted a bit more shrimp, we ordered 3 more at a dollar apiece.
They were small and pressed flat. Never again. The service was excellent but they are ripping off customers in the quality and price.
