Maybe it takes some time to be attended, but you can order some drinks at the begining. I do suggest to arrive before 7PM and you can assure a table.

Ate dinner here. Restaurant is newer and was very clean. Service was very good and friendly. Food was good and consistent with the brand. If you like the Red Lobster chain of restaurants, you will like this location.

The Red Lobster has an all new menu. We had lunch with excellent service and we could stay and relax as long as we wanted. I ordered the all new wood fired shrimp tacos which came with rice and were fresh and very tasty. My friend had the fish and chips. Will return to try another one of their dishes... More

I had fish and chips with sam adams octoberfest beer. I ate at the bar and had a good experience. I recommend eating at the bar because your bar tender will aways be there working their behind off and if you need anything you can just shout .. plus she's a hard worker!

While Red Lobster is a chain restaurant, we like to go there sometimes, especially if they have a special offer. Then its a nice deal to dine at Red Lobster. Without a special offer, we usually go else where. (Example: we will drive to the coast to enjoy a seafood restaurant with ocean views). As such, Red Lobster is a... More

We went to Red Lobster for a birthday dinner and from the beginning of our experience, not a very good start. We had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated and once we were, I was a bit shocked on how empty the area was, but thought well maybe they are under staffed. Well about 10 minutes at least... More

I've always liked Red Lobster and whenever we go the food is pretty good. However if you are looking for an expeditious meal, you'll be disappointed. The price is also really high so we make it a point to only come here on occasion. The staff is friendly though, just slow in my opinion.

The food was good, consistently good, as I had been there the night before with a friend. Service was good, competent, although this Red Lobster has at least 2 servers who are outstanding to excellent who add their personality without being overwhelming. This night the server was competent, but not one of the excellent ones.l

I first saw the Red Lobster TV ad in Food Network during my 2010 trip to San Francisco and have been longing to taste the succulent seafood dishes featured. However, the locations I was in were far from any Red Lobster branch. Finally, on this 8th trip, I made it and found the food really as good as advertised, fresh... More
