We were told there was a 20 minute wait, the staff was friendly and visited with us while we waited and we were seated much sooner than told. The service and food was great!

At the spur of the moment I decided to order take out from Red Lobster. My order was hot and ready when I arrived. The server checked to make sure my order was correct. I rushed home and to my surprise the diner was piping hot, large portions a bag full of their famous biscuits. I was stuffed to the... More

We came here to eat because my niece loves crab legs. We ordered crab legs, coconut shrimp, rock lobster, popcorn shrimp, grilled chicken with all kinds of sides. The food was good, but our server was not too good, trying to being nice. We like red lobster but I'm not sure we will be back to this one anytime soon.

I've dined on 3 occasions in fairly short succession. Be it fried or broiled; I've found the portions/pricing/preparation to be on point. Service in the bar area is always prompt and friendly. No issues.

We had dinner here with family and friends. Two ordered the Admiral's Feast, one a surf and turf but I ordered a pound of crab legs. I think I made the best choice. The legs were sweet and tender. Of course everyone loved the cheddar biscuits served while we waited for our entrees. Delicious!

Not too long of a wait for a Friday night. Great service, Great food, I had the pick 3 with walt's shrimp, scampi and crab legs (it was crab-fest), I upgraded to the grilled corn with lime butter. Everything was good but the grilled corn , kinda tasted like you were eating a lime with corn-butter. Won't be ordering that... More

The food is generally very good, but on more than one occasion the service has been awful. While the wait to get seated is often short, we have waited at the table for as long as 2 hours to get our food after ordering. This is not always the case, but it happened a few years ago and again last... More

Like most people we've been going to Red Lobster for years and realize they have had a down turn in business and that they are trying new things but changing old standbys are not the way to do that. This is the second time we've been to Red Lobster in the last few months and both times we were very... More

My assistant and I ate at RL while working in the area. It was good as expected. I had the fried seafood platter and he had a steamed dish. Both were good.

I've always enjoyed Red Lobster and appreciate its proximity! Crustaceans and mollusks of any kind are my favorites.
