Went here to dinner last Friday night. Got there around 5:30pm with 3 adults, a 6yr old and a 2yr old. We were immediately seated. We ordered drinks and the kids food first and our food once the kids good came. The server was terrific with the kids. Great time for all and terrific food.

The place was mostly empty, yet they said it would be about a 10 minute wait. We could only assume that it was a World Series game night and the cubbies are playing and nobody wanted to work that night. The food was ok. His tilapia was not so good, we definitely do better cooking it ourselves. The all you... More

We ate at this Red Lobster on September 19, 2016. A short wait, 15 minutes (short by Red Lobster standards). We were seated but an overhead light glared on us, so we requested a different table and the staff moved us. Had drinks and an appetizer: stuffed mushrooms. I had the snow crab legs and the other person had a... More

For $18, you can have all the shrimp you'd want to eat, and I did. I ordered two kinds of shrimp and rice. Only the shrimp scampi was served hot - the other and the rice were almost warm. So, my refills were the scampi and you get 5 little shrimp per refill. One came back a little cool, and... More

Food was good. Service a little slow and didn't receive all of at the same time. But what came was awesome.

We decided to go here instead of the numerous fast food places and restaurants we don't know (we are from Ontario). I'm so glad we did. The waitress we got was so amazing. She took great care of us and was so incredibly polite. I wish I could remember her name. The food was wonderful. If you need a spot... More

Our son decided to dine here after graduating from Navy boot camp at Great Lakes after 9 weeks of eating galley food! I don't think we have ever had a bad meal at Red Lobster and this Red Lobster did not disappoint us. We called ahead and they said there was no wait at the time and we let them... More

Of course the cheesy biscuits are great, but the entree is average. Ok to visit if set on seafood and have a coupon/gift certificate, but don't make it your go-to or fancy place. Average waitstaff too, usually college age with high turnover.

We love Red Lobster and we have always had great service when we've gone here. We live close by so we've been several times and we've always left happy and satisfied. The food is always great, the staff are friendly and go out of their way to make it a good experience. It's usually busy in here but the wait... More
