This is a great Place to visit if you really want to eat great lobsters. I stop by today to taste the lobster. Less wait time and clean restaurant. No problem with parking and the service was so great. The food is not cheap but they worth the value. Lots on the menu to choose from. I like the drinks... More

The service was poor; the food unimaginative. The biscuits were still good, but the food did not seem as good as it used to be. Never a "stellar" food location, but usually an unpretentious good meal, the last two visits were disappointing. I don't know if I'll try again.

My wife and I and the kids came in for an evening meal on the weekend. We were sat and started to unravel the kitchen utensils from the cloth napkin. All the utensils were extremely dirty, all had food attached to include the towel. When the waitress came in we showed her what the utensils looked like and she had... More

For a chain restaurant the food is not bad. Located on Rt 22. Not a good place to go to during major holiday, the wait is too long.

Extensive menu and reasonable prices. Periodically have endless shrimp, i.e. all you can eat---at a great price. Service is good. Salad and rolls come with lunch or dinner. Portions are good size. Specialty ice teas are very good with free refills. Better to go for lunch than dinner as dinner mostly likely will have a small wait. Plenty of parking... More

Went with 5 more family members, we were pleasantly surprised by the speedy and friendly service. Food is great, servings are generous and prices are very reasonable. This is franchise restaurant, so the menu in this one is the same as in most other Red Lobsters. Most meals are of course focused on seafood, and they have a good selection... More

My best friend and I decided on Red Lobster for a meal on Saturday, June 25, 2016. I was prepared to expect a 'wait time' before we were seated. It was shortly after 5pm when we arrived. The hostess greeted us right away and I excused myself to go to the bathroom. I wasn't gone more than five minutes. When... More

For those of you who have not been to a Red Lobster recently, I am writing this review. Being a lobster lover, you can't always expect to find it on the menu during the winter. My daughter called me one afternoon and said she was craving lobster and wanted to get together for dinner that night. She suggested a couple... More

I visited this establishment with a member of my staff and my 22yr old daughter. We met for lunch and arrived close to 1:30pm. It was not yet crowded but we waited about 10 minutes for a booth to be cleaned. We were seated near the bar. The low lighting, in my opinion, created for a boring atmosphere. After mulling... More
