Everything about our visit was very good. Good was just as we wanted. Waitress was excellent. She took our order without writing anything down and didn't miss anything even though we added a couple side orders. She was very attentive in keeping our table clear and our drinks filled.

As always, the food was great. My husband and I ate dinner around 8:30 on Saturday and our waitress was quite busy as if there weren't enough staff on hand.

I had the Rock Tail Lobster and a Crab Cake appetizer so unsure which was the offending dish or where else but its... More

I have always found service good at most restaurants we stop at when traveling in the U.S. Typical Red Lobster food but good service.

We don't eat at chain restaurants often but this was walking distance from our room. We do not like seafood that is farmed in Asia, so we ask our waitress Anna where the fish and shellfish were harvested and she honestly did not know but said she would inquire in the kitchen. Within a couple of minutes we were presented... More

You know... Red Lobster food is Red Lobster food. While we try to avoid chain restaurants, this one was just a few steps from our hotel, Call me picky, but I won't eat fish or shellfish imported from Asia. We sat in the bar and Anna was our server. I asked Anna where the shrimp and mussels were from. Though... More

Now not so much. Bones in the fish(poorly prepared), overcooked salmon, dry broccoli, broken shelled mussels. Bread was good though. Better places to eat, for a lot less money. I ate at one years ago and remembered it being so much better.....it's a shame..

Thank letsast
