“What a surprise!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Went here with a friend. We both ordered from the 4-course special (soup, salad, entree, and dessert). I had the chicken/tortilla soup, garden salad, grilled tilapia, and the chocolate brownie a la mode). All were tasty. The soup was spicy, the salad cold and fresh, the tilapia was nicely seasoned and cooked well, and the dessert was just the right size and not overly sweet. I highly recommend this special..and not a bad price at $15.99 plus tax.

“Decent Service and Standard Menu”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The seafood chain is susceptible to a lack of freshness about the seafood but for the price and location it is an OK value. Service is usually decent thanks to pretty perky college students serving the guests. Service is usually fast and the Chain Red Lobster specials and drinks are great. We prefer more local ma and pop places as that greatly influences the quality and creativity of the dishes -- which this chain does not have the liberty of.

“Great "franchise" food!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Although it's a franchise (which we typically try to stay away from), the food is always good and the service excellent. Excellent value. Waiting time is typically less than told upon entering - and that's ok!!

“Just like any other red Lobster”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

You get what you expect here at Red Lobster if you have been to other Red Lobsters...

The best part of the meal are the little biscuits they serve before dinner.. this is probably worth the whole meal..

“Fourth of July”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Great place for dinner before viewing State College fireworks. Broiled seafood platter hit the spot plus the peach lemonade and carrot cake.
