We usually try to avoid football weekends in Champaign but this occasion was unavoidable, a fraternity board of directors meeting. Fortunately, the meeting was early and adjourned early and we arrived at the nearby Red Lobster at 1901 North Prospect Avenue in plenty of time to avoid the pre-game rush. More good news: the Red Lobster staff was ready for... More

Always a good restaurant. Of course the cheddar bay biscuits are to die for!!! Whether you get shrimp or fish entree they have always been good. Coconut shrimp with the pina colada sauce is my favorite.

The food is always great here but their water tastes horrible. Parking is lacking and on this last trip we kind of felt our waitress was rushing us out, trying to give us our check before we were done eating and we even shared meals so we could have room for dessert so it just made more work for her...

Just like any other Red Lobster. Parking is almost insufficient. The service here is always very, very good.

This is the second time we have been there, the food is good but the service is fantastic. I thought the first time may have been a fluke, but Mason was a great server and the Management must know how to train people. Good seafood with fantastic service, this place is a great place to eat.

We went for a family dinner. The service was excellent, our server really looked after us. The food was above average but nothing spectacular for the price. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to visit again.

Had a wonderful meal here. Service was good but not outstanding. Food, however, was excellent and came out hot and perfectly prepared, which is rare these days. I would definitely return and recommend this restaurant.
