Enjoyed a late casual midweek lunch at this seafood restaurant chain. The restaurant was moderately busy and we were shown to our booth and provided with menus. The waitress advised of the specials and drink orders were taken. She returned with the drinks and we ordered the fish & chips and the lobster plus a caesar salad. The hand battered... More

Arrived here to have lunch with family to round out trip before flying back to Ireland at about 1.30pm. The 'hostess' - who is easily the most indifferent, cold person I've encountered in such a job, told us we'd have a 20-25 min wait. I told her we were on route to airport so on a schedule and asked if... More

This is my favorite place to eat when I want to have a nice crab meal. The prices are very reasonable and you won't leave hungry. Make sure you try the wonderful (free.....yes free) biscuits. We always ask for a booth and enjoy the relaxing environment. The waiters are friendly and make sure you get everything you need. Watch for... More

Went with the clam chowder and Ultimate Feast. Looks better than it tastes for $29. First the biscuits are light and tasty, a good start. Clam Chowder a BIG disappointment. Had a bowl and only thing added was a 1/2 thumb worth of potato cut in 8 pieces. No onion, celery, bell pepper, mushroom or seasoning or anything else to... More

Whenever we visit USA, Red Lobster is a frequent stop for the family. WE love the seafood combinations. Our family is four and we ordered Roasted Maine Lobster Bake and 3 Ultimate feast (we ask substitutes of Coconut shrimp for crablakes and it was done). Food was delicious as always at RL. I wish the RL at Toronto is on... More

I was pleased this location was open until 10 p.m. While the food is very good -- my friend and I split a Bairdie crab dinner with additional sides -- the service is slow. We arrived at a 9:05 p.m. and it took a full 10 minutes for waitstaff to notice and take our order. However, our waiter made up... More

We always find the best and freshest seafood on town here. Go early always busy week nights best. Has a bar you can relax at while waiting for your table. Once seated the friendly staff will let you know about any specials and what the catch of the day is. Great selection for young or hearty eaters or those watching... More

7/9/16 we spent one night in the area after attending a San Francisco Giants game. We have a red lobster where we live and haven't loved it in the past but it was getting late and we wanted seafood. It was a great decision. It was quiet and our food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend.

Ate late lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. Two people in party had shrimp and I had the Atlantic Salmon fresh fish. Food was good but our waitress was nowhere to be found when we needed her.
