“Not Bad (but very slow)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

We ordered take-out (coconut shrimp and lobster pizza) from this Red Lobster last week. We placed our order a good half-hour before pulling into the parking lot, but our food wasn't ready when we walked inside the restaurant. I don't frequent Red Lobster all that often, but I can't quite understand why there was such a wait time for appetizers. Hmmm.

But this place was new and clean. And if you get there at 4 o'clock on a weekday and pick up your take-out, you can make it to Key Largo in time to watch the beautiful sunset.

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

Let me start off with I am a true fan of Red Lobster. The homestead one was clean & new, only good thing about it. The restaurant was basically empty, wait time was only 15min, so you can imagine how slow it was, yet the kitchen was backed up!? It took 40 min for us to get our main course! 40min!!!! The waitress was no where to be found so its not like I could've cancelled the order. Not once did my husband & I get a refill. For the 2 hours that we were there we we only saw the waitress 2 times. Didn't even come by to see how everything was. By the time we left we noticed 2 other tables complaining to the manager. So not a great Red Lobster. Food was good. I'll stick with The Falls Red Lobster.

“Service was awful, food was mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

They had two wait staff "handling" our table for a party of 8 of which 4 were children. Half the food was brought to the table more than 10 minutes before the other 1/2. A lot of it was cold. We almost walked out and would've if we hadn't been there celebrating one of the kids' birthdays. The management did give us a gift card to use in the future, but when we went back some months later... the service was just as bad. We now drive an extra 15 miles to go to the other Red Lobster. Really too bad.
