Had Walt's shrimp + Lobsterfest Surf + Sirloin. Would not recommend ordering a steak other than a steakhouse but the seafood was just right. Service was great even though the place was packed. Raw oysters were good size and tasted pretty fresh. Was impressed they had Shock Top on draft.

service was slow, food was kind of ok,, however, the shrimp was not fresh, appeared to be frozen too long, and was overcooked

For a seafood place Red Lobster has an excellent recipe for margaritas. We order the one that has the Grand Marnier on the side. We pour the grand marnier into the margarita and it is sooooo good. Of course the seafood is delicious. Service is very good and we go for the trout and lobster.

Had not been to a Red Lobster in ages so off I went to get a good seafood dinner. I really wanted some of their rolls also...but they just did not taste like they use to! The fried shrimp I had looked and tasted of frozen...a little rubbery and no flavor. The best thing was the service...Ashley was very friendly,... More

This review is for the 17415 281 North location. For some reason it was not listed with Tripadvisor... Seven of us had a nice dinner at this location. A young man named Austin was our principal server and he was very knowledgeable! The food and the service was excellent! Most of the guests only had water and only a few... More

We had the grilled tilapia and Walts fried shrimp. Food and service was great.....biscuits hot and salad fresh! Easy on and off Interstate 35. They have a nice bar but with a large selection of drinks. We recommend this restaurant if you're on the east side of San Antonio.

Chain restaurants are like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. Our past two trips in the past couple of weeks to this ole venerable "red lob" have been quite good, very good in fact. Service has been above average and the food quality even better. I'm actually surprised by this. Had the Wood-Grilled... More

This branch of Red Lobster is very clean. The servers are pleasant, although they're a bit on the slow side. A nice location for a fast, yummy lunch. Order off the lunch menu for good value prices.
