“Great Service Average Food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I ate there two days ago for the endless shrimp. Our server was awesome. The food was average. I enjoyed the breaded shrimp and the teriyaki shrimp. The Strawberry margaritas was good. The rice and mashed potatoes were average. I would probably eat here again.

“Nice Suprise”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Had given up on Red Lobster until we ate here. There was 6 of us on a Tues. night. We were very fortunate to have a wonderful waiter, sweet, funny, and fast. So surprised from the other Red Lobsters we had been in.

“Josh was a shining star!”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

We live close to this Red Lobster and frequently eat here. It is close, fast and the food is decent for what you pay. We have always found the staff courteous, fast, efficient and they keep your drinks full. Frequently when the wait for a table is too long we will eat in the bar. On 06/10 we were eating in the bar and a family of 2 adults and 4 four children came in the bar and proceeded to take up 2 tables of 2 and 2 seats at the bar. It was Sunday so many of the tables were already full. Josh was the only staff on in the bar and he was moving at a brisk pace. The man that was with the party of 6 - was rude, speaking in a loud voice and started off the entire exchange apparently mad. When Josh asked if they were altogether - he said we came in at the same time didn't we. Josh had bee in the back and had no way of knowing. Josh got their drink orders and was making them and running food that was ready - it took him a few minutes to get back with the drinks, biscuits and take the order. The man stated in a loud voice if he needed help to handle his customer load maybe the manager should hire more people. The wait was less than 5 minutes and one could see Josh was hustling. The rest of the visits went downhill and after that- finally my husband turned to the man and told him to give the kid a break and to keep his opinions to himself because we were friends of Josh ( we aren't) but that shut him up. Josh deserves a raise for his handling of this guy - he never was short or unprofessional at anytime. I really don't know hoe he kept his cool.

I like the food at Red Lobster. I wish they would let the fish stand on it's own more often. No sauce, butter or excessive spicing - good fish is good by itself. They have a great opportunity to get on the healthy food kick and offer a more healthful selection.
