I'll start with the one negative right up front. The restaurant is cold. We visited in December in Minnesota. Turn up the heat! We were there for lunch. I had shrimp tacos, my wife had walts shrimp. The server gave us 2 bowls so that we could split her salad. Service and food was hot, good, did not wait, and... More

We were able to choose a meal to share since neither of us have huge appetites. The crab legs and lobster were very good and the sides were well cooked.

What a fishy smell as soon as you walk in. Window sills and décor are very dirty. No cleaning what so ever. Vacuum the floors while your eating. This is not right. Food was not all that good. Pricy for you get.

My husband and I were in the Cities doing some shopping and decided on Red Lobster since we had several gift cards and hadn't eaten there in ages. We were really looking forward to it. While we were not impressed in the least with the hostess, who failed to acknowledge us properly and seat us in a timely manner, the... More

Consider a higher price chain restaurant with little imagination in the dishes. What you see is what you get.

I eat here once a week. How great the melt in your mouth biscuits are depends on when you get there. Mid-lunch hour is when the lukewarm biscuits arrive. Service is usually very good starting with the hostess. Managers are quick to get feedback. Not impressed with crabfest....lukewarm and ...off day for an otherwise good team. Potato was over cooked... More

We decided to try mid week and avoid the big crowds and it was definitely the way to go. We were seated in a couple of minutes. Still had the same great food and great service.

We live in the SW metro and typically go to the Golden Valley location because we despise the Bloomington location. Tonight we tried Burnsville and were impressed. The location was clean, friendly, and the service was excellent. We will be back!

I had an early birthday lunch with my mom and stepdad today. The pick your own seafood trio was good I had shrimp with pasta, crab cakes, and pineapple chicken. Food and service was ok but I had to remind him about the soup I ordered. He did not charge for the soup and gave free biscuits to take home... More

We recently went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We called ahead, and were glad we did (the wait would've been 45 minutes we were told). The food was all very good, and we had a nice time. The prices and speed of service were acceptable. We ordered the Rock Lobster/New York Strip "surf and turf" and split it... More
