I've been here a few times with different experience on service each time. Last time there was a group of 8 of us and the server was horrible. He took our drink orders and then didn't come back for at least 10 minutes and we wanted to put in appetizer orders. We had to repeat our order multiple times to... More

This restaurant is one of Springfield's finest choices! I always get great service here and my meal is always cooked perfectly. So needless to say, this is where we chose to have our early Valentine's Day date. * We tried to celebrate together on Friday night at a different restaurant that offered shrimp/fish but we were very disappointed with their...

I've never eaten at Red Lobster before because I don't care much for seafood. However I tried the potato soup and chicken tacos and they were both excellent. I definitely recommend both for anyone not wanting seafood. The cheese biscuits are also pretty good and they sure give you plenty of those. We had a large party and the service... More

Went there at 11 when the doors open and that's the way to do it. Had Shannon as our server and I just can't say enough good stuff about her. She said she has been there 16 years, I hope they see what a gem they have there. (nope, never met her before,lol) We had the Lobster Artichoke Dip (wonderful!),... More

We stopped in for lunch after last minute Christmas shopping all morning. Our food was prepared quickly and perfectly, and the staff was all very friendly. Overall we had a great experience!

We haven't been to Red Lobster in years, and thought we'd both try the 4-course feast for $15 as advertised on TV. The menu showed it cost $16.99 - so the waitress spoke to a manager and had the price adjusted. Our waitress was new, and could never be found for refills, to clear the dirty dishes, or to get...

I ordered the endless shrimp and the scampi is my overall favorite with the breaded shrimp coming in second. The peach tea is great as is the calm chowder! The service was good but a little slower than I would have liked. The price is right foe endless shrimp though!

I'm so happy that I made it back out to the all you can eat shrimp special before it ends! The Korean BBQ shrimp are awesome, and so are the Parmesan peppercorn shrimp. Our server, Shannon, was so polite and helpful. Very bubbly personality! Their building was kept very tidy as well (I always check bathrooms and it was clean.)... More

No rolls, said that the waitresses were fighting over them... Our waitress was clueless on pricing. Just not the typical red lobster service and food you normally get.

Thank lovetotravel153
