I've eaten at this particular restaurant a number of times and its been 50/50...The service/food/price this last trip was horrible. Went for the Lobsterfest, but it became a joke. The Caesar salad was so wilted, it bordered on slimy--The time between when we finished our salads to the time we received our "barely warm" dinner was 20-25 minutes. At no... More

Ok, so it's not politically correct to give RL a 5. But honestly, this location does it to perfection. I've been to plenty other boutique seafood restaurants that are not as good. Well managed, clean, attractive, fair price, good selection of fish and sides, cooked to perfection. If you didn't know it was RL, you might think it was a... More

Stopped in late afternoon/early evening and had a very nice meal. Service was very good and the food was spot on. We enjoyed the visit and look forward to trying it again some time.

Underseasoned shrimp & steak, under cooked & cold veggies, Cajun pasta with no Cajun, garlic shrimp scampi with no garlic or flavor, mashed potatoes too dense & hard to eat, but snow crab legs & chicken fingers were fine. The biscuits were tasty,... More

Went here to grab a bite to eat before they closed for the night. Our server was Derek and he was very attentive and accommodating. Of course the cheddar Bay biscuits were great as always. We got the New Orleans salmon with shrimp, wild rice and bake potato for one entree and the other was the ultimate feast. Both entrees... More

Went looking for good food and place to cool off. Africa was our server and she took very good care of us. We were a group of five and all enjoyed their meal. Salmon and tilapia was cooked to perfection. Grilled chicken sandwich was enjoyed by the nonseafood lover in the group. Large portions of food on the lunch menu... More

Enjoyable dinner, had to wait about 20 minutes on a Saturday night which wasn't to long. Food was good, service was good, had the crap cakes very tasty, enjoyed the tomato, onion and mozzarella salad.

The ads lures us in but the food is way over buttery. Each time I say not again and the ads lure us again. I wish they could reduce what they put on the seafood so that the taste could come through.

We were in town for a few days and ended up going twice! Takeout service was exceptional, one of the first times we've done takeout and the order was complete. Will be back soon!
