We stopped for dinner since we wanted a familiar restaurant to eat at. Service was fast & friendly. I had Shrimp Scampi which was very good and my husband had the snow crabs which he enjoyed. Very clean and our food was no better or...More

Our waiter Joel was wonderful. The food did not blow us away. It did not live up to the way it is advertised. We do not have a Red Lobster where we live but see commercials all the time. So disappointing.

This is a well-managed franchise and they deliver the signature Red Lobster experience with excellence. This is also a huge restaurant and yet the service is lavish; the servers are fully available for every need.

Had the worst steak I have ever eaten. Rest of the meal was good. But stay away from their meat. The service was extremely slow. I don't understand why they are always busy. Won't ever be back.

Our family went to Red Lobster to celebrate a birthday. We have been going here for over 20 years and this is the 1st unpleasant experience we've had. Our waiter acknowledged us, 30 minutes went by, NO water- nothing! I finally went to the bar...More
