Mother loves this place, and the food is decent but their service is sub-par, usually have to ask for something at least 2 times and sometimes 3 or 4, They slow roll you on refills of endless shrimp so be prepared to wait for pretty much everything here. There are much better restaurants in the area.

I can't really review the food or drink as I left before anything was served. I waited for about 10 minutes before the server came to take my drink and food order. After waiting another 15 minutes for anything to be served I decided to leave. Upon leaving there were about 5 servers congregated at the reception desk. At least... More

The seafood at Red Lobster is always very dependable and good. Not great, but very good. I wish their wine list was more interesting (a Gruner Veltliner, an Albarino, a Vermentino, a Verdicchio, a Grenache Blanc or similar would be VERY good).

I have not been to a red lobster for some time. My mom was interested in trying it as she had not been before. The first thing I noticed was that the irresistible cheddar biscuits were pedestrian at best and a disappointment. The food is at best seafood for the masses meaning that if you are looking for lots of... More

Service was excellent. We sat down and server was there immediately to take our drink order. Food was very good and a good portion. Especially for the price.

I don't dine at Red Lobster often but all the Lobsterfest advertisements were effective at getting me in their doors! The place was packed and it took almost an hour to get seated. The service was a bit slow but the place was slammed, so I don't blame the server for the wait times. There's a full bar and you... More
