“Bland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Seafood served without imagination - mostly tasteless. Service mediocre. Pricey. Atmosphere OK. Not highly recommended, and definitely too costly for families.

NEVER once had a bad meal here, call it a chain, but I always leave 100 percent satisfied.

Chain restaurant food. Can be very salty. Overpriced also.

“Not impressed with the Waiting Area”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

The food was exactly what you would expect from Red Lobster, but we were waiting in their front room and it was quite frigid (no heat!). When someone attempted to open the door (there were children waiting there too!) and let some heat into the area, they came out and said that the customers were getting chilled. What were we wait to be? Dinner?!?

“Lunch with the Old Folks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

I ate here on a family visit with an elderly aunt and uncle who had a gift certificate. We approached the already crowded parking lot for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, but were seated immediately. My uncle wanted me to try the shrimp bruschetta appetizer, and we all enjoyed it tremendously. He loved his fresh tilapia, and my aunt and I heartily filled up on our luncheon specials, baked shrimp. People may knock this place as a chain, but I thought the seafood was quite nicely prepared and definitely fresh. It's a very nice place to take your elderly relatives!
