I did not really want to go to Red Lobster, I got talked into it…………so I went. Well the staff was great and the menu looked good but I had heard and read lots of bad stories about the Red Lobster chain. Well I am happy to report that the management has worked hard to fix the problems. The wait... More

It's lobster fest, that's not why we went but hey why not have lobster? So much food, unbeatable! We live the cheese biscuits they give you, I swear I could make a meal from those alone. If your on a budget and want lots of food this is your place!

We visited the Red Lobster for the first time in over five years. We were shocked at the prices, especially considering the fairly bland chain food. I had the baked sole with crabmeat, and found it almost tasteless. My husband's coconut shrimp were very good however. As always, the Red Lobster biscuits are wonderful, but one can get those in...

One would think that a restaurant with Lobster in their name would have outstanding lobster but it was not great at all. Lobster tail meat was all discoloured and undercooked. Our server was good but all the other female servers were indifferent and hostile like it was an inconvenience to serve us. One server we asked to top up our... More

I met friends here for lunch. I had eaten here years ago and found it disappointing now. The waitress we had was friendly and efficient. For me, too much of the menu is fried or greasy. It's difficult to find something fresh to eat that isn't calorie laden. Their only salad is a classic Caesar. It's covered with cheese and... More

We recently visited this Red Lobster, looking forward to another great meal and good service. I'm afraid that the quality here has gone downhill substantially -- the food was so-so, and the service wasn't great. Not a big deal for us as we only go there when we travel to visit relatives, and unfortunately, most of them are now gone.... More

Went there just in time for dinner rush, but they had us seated within 15 mins, had our drinks ordered shortly thereafter. I ordered all you can eat shrimp, they kept them coming before plate was empty, all was very tasty!

We had a party of 12 dining here to witness their pleasant reception though a bit slow to have the tables ready. Its well located while we stayed at the Ramada across the road with no need to bother driving over. Its entrees are typical Red Lobster fare.

We(husband and wife) have visited the Red Lobster in Lacey at least a dozen times over the past 15 years. This visit was a shocker. What started as a "lets have Lobster" which is something we do once a year, soon went downhill. First the waitress spilled an ice tea drink on me,soaked my shirt and I had to strip... More

Came here on a Friday for an anniversary dinner. We were told it was about a 20 min wait for a table so I left the hostess my name. We went to the bar to have a drink to kill time. When our table was ready, our server was great! She brought us biscuits right away and made sure we... More
