Ok, this is one of those guilty pleasures restaurants that you just have to go to every now and then and get your shrimp or crab fix. We go during the shrimp or crab fest events. You get a basket of cheese biscuits that are oh-so fattening but you just have to have one (or three). We like the combo... More

We eat here a couple times of year. Only Red Lobster location for a large radius so location can tend to be very packed with an extensive weight especially during peak dinner times 5-7pm. We went tonight on a Friday about 8:05 and were immediately seated. Food is usually very good. Ultimate feast is a favorite of mine. Love when... More

Great staff. Great service. Good location. Lobster and shrimp pretty soggy and the new menu (including the lobster and shrimp) was over priced. Not the greatest, but we're trying to lose weight and fish seemed like a good option. Not real happy with it.

Just about the only place in Roanoke that has consistently good seafood is Red Lobster. Outside of Roanoke is a different story; but we were here at the time. They have a nice salad and they always set a basket of bread on the table. They are fast with the "meet and greet" and a sever in not far behind.... More

I usually drive by and scoff at the people in Red Lobster. Why? I'm from New England! We have the best seafood. Why would I ever eat there! Well... I am in VA for business and had been working for 10 hours on no food. This was right next door. So I swallowed my pride (as an appetizer you could... More

I took my daughter out to an early dinner today. Red Lobster is having Lobster Fest until the middle of April. And since we both love seafood, I treated my daughter to dinner so we could spend some quality time together. I had Lobster Lovers Dream and my daughter had the Ultimate Feast. The great thing about having an early... More

Wife and I were in the area and fish/seafood sounded good for lunch. We were seated very quick and the server (Jackson) was very nice and most helpful to our request. The food was very good, not over cooked like some seafood places. We will go back from time to time.
