Always drive down from Montreal to eat red lobster and I never go home disappointed. Food is really good, service is amazing ( depending on who you fall on) and the place is always full. Definitely worth going time to time. Price might be a little steep but you are eating really good seafood. And those biscuits are to die... More

I come here about once a year to enjoy Blackened salmon New Orleans. Never fail. Today I tried the lobster bisque for the first time, fantastic. And their drinks are awesome. Try the watermelon margarita, fabulous! Thanks Cameron for your smiling service.

The location is not too far from downtown and can be reachable by public transport (buses). We took taxi though. The other Red Lobster Ottawa (Merivale) is way farther from downtown. Food was good. Drinks were good. Service was quick and courteous. We were very satisfied. We went there during LobsterFest.

Went with family from Quebec for lunch. Server asked about drinks which arrived fairly quickly. Then he forgot about us. We waited and waited then finally flagged down another waiter. Our original waiter actually said that he had forgotten us. Food very average.

We drove from Montreal just to come eat Red Lobster,restaurant was busy but we expected it being Saturday and all! Biscuits were to die for as usual! Food was good! Service was slow. Had to ask for lemon wedges 3 times,more napkins twice. Despite the service,really happy with the food and biscuits!:) Great end to a Saturday family road trip!

For true lovers of seafood, I would not recommend this restaurant. Although everything was fine, the true flavors of the actual seafood/fish are camouflaged by their seasonings. A good example are the lobster tails. Once you add cream and cheese and spices you just don't really taste the lobster anymore. We had the seafood/artichoke dip which was fine. All the... More

The service however was not good with the waiter serving everyone standing at the same place, some plate going on top of our heads or accross the table. he closed our bill while we had told him we will order...

We have been away from Red Lobster too long! The biscuits are better than the knock offs I make at home. We both had lobster tacos and Real mashed potatoes. Excellent!
