“Average”
Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

Interior of the restaurant appears to have been recently updated and looks nice.
Menu is the typical Red Lobster food. Food is "average " but I think one goes to a chain restaurant not for "excellent" food but for consistent and reliably average food. I got the lunch combo of fried schrimp and fried fish- comes with a salad and a baked potato and cheddar biscuits. Cost approx $10. I liked the schrimp. Lettuce on the salad could have been a lot fresher. The cheddar biscuits are always good.

“ITS A JOKE”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Worst food/service/atmosphere ever. Their endless shrimp fest was a scam. 20 min replacement dish wait time. Only 1 replacement dish at a time. I ate 40 shrimp in 2 hrs them walked out telling the mgr to cancel ticket.

“Okay - but needs a redo.”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

I've eaten at sooo many Red Lobsters. My Mother liked one of their dishes in particular. Think I've dined in about twenty different locations...throughout Texas and Florida. They have devoted customers and the cocktails are strong! This one - in Tyler - needs an update - a bit of remodeling.
