Food is good but never got my water refilled. Then had to ask twice for the biscuits that come complimentary. Only second time at a Red Lobster and didn't realize the food was on the expensive side. Fish and chips was good and not badly priced.

I spent $31 on a trio of fried shrimp, shrimp linguini and grilled shrimp. Salad was very cold, old and limp, brussels sprouts were not fresh and were burnt and dry. Shrimp dish tasted like factory food. Decor is dated and worn out looking. Not worth the money. A friend was served a very plain entree of white fish and... More

We arrived at 6pm on a busy Saturday evening and waited 20 minutes to be seated which is not unreasonable. Therefor reservations are recommended to avoid wait time. Once at our table our drinks order was taken promptly and our salads followed a few minutes later.We did not have to wait long for the main courses to arrive and as... More

Great portion sizes - we both left quite full and with extras to enjoy for lunch the next day. We both had the $15 4 Course Feast Meals - soup, salad, main course... More

I had the tilapia and my husband had the salmon. We both got half orders of the dinners. Plenty to eat as you get a salad and two sides. Fish was cooked just right. Our server, Peter, was very attentive and checked back with us during our meal.

Enjoying dining at the Red Lobster as great service! Sherri P. Is our favorite as she goes out her way to accommodate us! Extra butter for the delicious lobster, extra dips for the Coconut Shrimp. Great lunch specials! Great prices! Yes, a chain restaurant, but this location beats them all as far as I am concerned!
