I was traveling in the area and stopped at Red Lobster for a seafood dinner. I guess I am spoiled by eating at the shore. The waitstaff was friendly. I appreciated drink refills. The food was just average.

Ok, we have all dined in a Red Lobster and know what to expect. Tonight the expected changed, sure the food was good, but the bar tender Janielle made the experience exceptional. She was pleasant and listened to my stories with interest. While doing so she did the work of several people. She was nice and very efficient, such a... More

My apologies to Red Lobster, and particularly, our server Leslie. I apparently gave my visit a 1, instead of a 5. BAD mistake! I had a splendid dinner with my family, and I do NOT want you to get a bad rap on this one. I went to Red Lobster on Wolf Rd. with my 2 sons, daughter-in-law, youngest son's... More

The food and service here was, I thought, as good as I have experienced in Red Lobsters across America. We were on vacation from Scotland and thoroughly enjoyed what we had and the service which was provided

Last night, after a horrendous visit to the Olive Garden located next door, we dined here for dinner. We have been here before. But it was so refreshing and appreciated to have friendly and professional staff greet us and serve us. There appeared to be plenty of staff working. Our waitress was Kathleen and she was excellent. Even though it... More

This place is hit or miss. When it is good, it is really good. When it is bad, it is really bad. This visit was the latter. Air conditioning barely worked and the food took forever to come out. Step it up please!

We were looking for a restaurant that was near our hotel. The restaurant was full and they gave us a table back near the bathroom and this seemed to be our waiters only booth in that area. The guy was friendly enough but he didn't seem to familiar with the menu and it took him forever to bring anything. I... More

Red lobster was in walking distance of our hotel and the food is always consistent. We knew we would get a good meal and were not disappointed
