I have been dining at Red Lobster for years. I have never had bad meal there. The biscuits are delicious and the caesar salads have a unique flavor. My favorite is always shrimp scampi.

I love the crab legs and the fresh shrimp. I usually go in the evening. This is a good place to celebrate someone's birthday as a group.

They had a bairdi crab leg special and it was fantastic. Probably the moistest sweetest crab legs I've ever tasted. Sat at the bar, grabbed a cold one and enjoyed my crab leg feast. If everything else is as good, you will not be disappointed.

Had a really good meal with a very good waitress! We really did not have a lot of time but the waitress was very kind and took care of all our needs! The food was done just the why we asked for it and the service was excellent! Yes I would go back! Thank you for your excellent service!
