I gave up on the chain years ago after 3 mediocre meals in Asheville. But I was on the road and had seen the ad on tv for crab, so decided to give it a try. The Hickory location had great reviews. It deserves them. The crab was delicious, juicy and abundant, the server (Sierra) was very sweet and in listening to the manager talk to other tables I could see why they are highly rated.

Pretty good food.. but what made the experience special was our waitress Lanikqua. She was very friendly, polite and extremely efficient!! We were a party of eight. She got all the orders correctly and was able to get the food out in a very timely manner.

Tried the pick two lunch at The Concord Red Lobster today. Everything is described as breaded except the “chicken Breast strips” which led us to believe they were not just chicken fingers. They were breaded, dry and flavorless. Our waitress was very slow and not attentive. We are saying goodbye to this chain that has gone way down hill.

We were driving from Asheville to Charlotte and stopped at the Red Lobster in Hickory NC for lunch. There were 5 adults in our party. We were not immediately impressed -- as after being seated we waited and waited for someone to at least take drink orders or bring water. We finally had to get up and ask for attention.

Monica came to the rescue and the rest of our meal was delightful. We ordered lots of different things, including clam chowder and seafood stuffed mushrooms, scallops and shrimp scampi, lobster tacos, mussels and more. Of course, the Red Lobster's cheese biscuits were gone in a flash.

Thanks to Monica for turning what might have been a disappointing lunch into an enjoyable meal time.

The food at Red Lobster has gone up in price while the quality has not. We used to eat here regularly. The house salad was like bagged salad mix, our bake potatoes were cold in the center. The fish and shrimp were hot, but again not as remembered the quality to be.
