I had dinner here with very good chowder and salmon. Service ok, and nice atmosphere. Excellent quality/price ratio. Lobster to try next time!

If you want to feel like you are a number and that counting tips is more important than earning them this is your place. Was seated in the bar and waited, no water, no greeting. Finally just left. Chain restaurants are all the same. They bring the masses and don't care about the singles like me.

Altogether a very... More

Mid-week date night. I have to admit I've forgotten what I ate as my entrée so I'm going to say it was not 'great' since it doesn't stick out in my memory weeks later, but I did have the scallops on the skewers that were appropriately cooked for appetizer. The biscuits are salty buttery bomb goodness as usual. Wedge salad... More

We went to Red Lobster on a Friday night, For drinks, we ordered a mojito and a beer. For dinner, we decided to share 3 appetizers and also ordered corn on the cob. We had their coconut shrimp, mussels, and their lobster and Langostino pizza. Food was tasty and filling. Service was good.

This Red Lobster was remodeled about a year ago, so the inside décor is nice, they also have a small bar area for meeting friends and/or appetizers. If you enjoy seafood then Red Lobster is probably the best "Chain" restaurant to go to. They have a nice menu selection, and a full bar. They typically are running some type of... More

Red Lobster seems to be a restaurant that you can always count on for good food, and a friendly staff. When we visited this restaurant, they were slow. The waiter that took care of us was very attentive. The food arrived, it was hot and delicious!

I was very strange to have to walk all the way around the building from the parking lot to enter the restaurant. Once inside we were seated quickly and asked for our drink order. I ordered the garlic shrimp plate $17.00 and was disappointed by the inability to actually taste the garlic. There were a couple of birthdays that night... More

We had a $50 gift card from Christmas. I had a wonderful 1.25 pound stuffed Maine Lobster, $34. Hubby had yummy shrimp tacos. We shared a cookie lava dessert. Friendly staff, easy parking. They advertise 7 different lunch option for $7.99, but we didn't try any of those. Will return.

food was bland, service was non-existent. I went to dinner early and alone, I expected quick service at that hour, the restaurant was certainly slow enough that they could have provided it, but the waitresses didn't seem interested in serving, or taking orders, or checking on guests. Food took a long time, and when it did come it lacked flavor
