The server Charles who waited on us was fantastic. Our hands were so cold coming in from the great winter weather in Albany. Charles brought us two steaming hot cups of water to use just to warm our hands. His service was excellent! He went...More

This was my first time eating at a Red Lobster restaurant. Overall my experience was average. Service was friendly and quick, but the food was average and very salty. Red Lobster certainly will not be put on my list of go-to chain restaurants.

We try Red Lobster whenever the bad memories dissipate. This visit jogged our memories. Wife tried the 4 course special with the Shrimp linguine Alfredo. Clam chowder was nothing special. The entree was acceptable. But the triple chocolate brownie desert was an embarrassment. It looked...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.

Not that I saw on the menu. Of course I wasn't looking for that item. You can go on-line to see their menu to look for that item to be sure (or if you don't see lobster tacos listed, to know they don't offer them).

Portions are smaller but so are the prices. Wish I could tell you more -- their lunch menu might be online.
