I visited the Ocala location for Lobster Fest lunch. Thought the lobster pizza sounded good. Not. It was really bad. Under cooked, limp, no flavor, not very much lobster and langostino. So disappointed.

Had dinner with my honey and friends and it was great. The waitress was patient and attentive. We all enjoyed our meals. We stayed well past closing because we were catching up and the staff never said a word to get us to leave. I even had leftovers so I actually had to great meals.

We recently visited our local Red Lobster in Ocala, Florida. We were thrilled with the atmosphere, fantastic food, and impeccable service by Ric. Thank you, Red Lobster, for a wonderful anniversary dinner. (we came at lunchtime and had a dinner meal.)

My wife had seen the commercials on TV for Lobsterfest and wanted to try it out. I had the Surf & Turf and and my wife had the the lobster-stuffed tilapia. The service was pretty good and the food was excellent. The servings are ample so we had enough to take home for another meal.

My wife had no question on where we would go for our Valentine's Day: Red Lobster. As we drove she read off the menu choices and luckily we got a parking space close up. Very busy with a line waiting, but in no time we were seated and Jeromy started our dinner. If there is one thing that makes me... More

This particular Red Lobster location isn't all that different from other restaurants in that chain. The first thing you notice when you approach the building is the incessant 'boom boom' of so-called music. It's not loud enough to be clearly heard, but too loud to be ignored. When you are inside the restaurant it's not quite as bad, but still... More

We always sit on the bar area if we can, the service seems to be a little better there and the ambiance is good. We had an early light dinner there recently, the soup is consistently good, both the clam chowder and lobster bisque, the biscuits yummy. My salad with shrimp on in was very small though good. My husband... More

I just moved to Ocala from CT, and we only had 1 Red Lobster in our area, and lets just say it has issues. So when a friend who was visiting wanted to go to Red Lobster, for their popcorn shrimp I was skeptical. I was impressed. He had a very large order of popcorn shrimp which came with a... More
