This Red Lobster (probably like many of them,) is always crowded, (though it doesn't feel crowded,) and I think it's for good reason. They do what they do well, with reasonable prices, good service and good fish and seafood. On this particular day, we had an anniversary, which I wasn't keen on telling our server when she asked the obligatory... More

Friday night out for dinner is always an issue, as it seems everybody else is out dining as well. We took a chance and arrived at Red Lobster at 6 PM. We were pleasantly surprised to only have to wait less than 15 minutes to be seated. Our server was very nice and service was quick. The food was good... More

I feel like I'm in a rut with my last 2 reviews. Sunday nights are date nights for my wife and I for a while because our kids are busy. We had great food but the service was not what it should have been at all! We got our rolls more than half way through the meal, my wife got... More

It's a Red Lobster, typical chain restaurant. Always clean and updated. Order up your lobster or crab legs or get the chicken (for those non-seafood lovers that tagged along). Note to Red lobster: bring back a non-seafood soup. The lobster bisque though is become inedible. WAY too much salt one day and burnt-tasting the next. Quality control in the kitchen... More

Our original seat location had cold air blowing on us the majority of the time on a cold day. After requesting that it be fixed, they bumped the heat up and we had warm air for a short time, then back to the cold air. We had to ask to be moved to another location within the restaurant. New location... More

Came here for dinner with my family. The service was great and speedy. The food on the other hand not so good. Both the wife and i ordered the ultimate feast with fire grilled lobster tail. The lobster was fantastic which usually is. The crablegs were the first thing i ate and they were not warm. The brocoli was cold... More

We all got the endless shrimp. We all tried the different shrimps and enjoyed all of them. Our sides, salad and sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes were delicious. Our server was excellent. It was a birthday but our relative didn't want any singing. The server offered her free ice cream but she declined. We were all full. Even had leftovers... More

Having lived in Vestal NY since 1978 and having been to this Restaurant on 2 prior occasions, I thought We would try it out for a quiet late dinner at 9:00 pm after all the crowds have left. I pass it going to and from home daily and it is always busy. I like good fresh fish having just returned... More
