I visited this restaurant solo. It took some time for a waiter to come to my table even though the restaurant was more than half empty. The waitress was pleasant and took my order promptly. After an average wait, a wrong order arrived at my table. I pointed out this wasn't what i had ordered.... I then waited around 15-20... More

Service was very good. Server knew the menu very well and was able to manipulate everything to all the guests delight. Not easy with this crowd! AIR CONDITIONING was just to cold. Food got cold in minutes. Drawn butter was almost solid

Nothing against employees or restaurant itself. Went for lunch and when looking at the menu, WOW. I know it's a chain but with these prices bye bye RL. That may be why you see on their commercials starting at.

Food perfect Drinks exactly as they should be Rolls scrumptious. Presentation beautiful. Prices fair. Coupons accepted. Our server was Kathy. She was accurate, kind, caring and expedient. We did not even tell them we were celebrating our 41st year of Marriage. God Bless

I had the snow crab with green beans. And a triple berry sangria. The service was excellent, but as usual in Port Charlotte you have a half hour wait to be seated even though there are numerous empty tables. I would suspicion they need more help.

The food: My wife had Shrimp Scampi, they were according to us both OK on the upper side. I had my speciality, Fish and Chips,... More

My husband and I went to Red Lobster for dinner a few nights ago. It was his suggestion. I had not been to a Red Lobster in a long while. We had mussels for an appetizer and, I must say, they were large and absolutely delicious. Between us, my hubby and I ordered salad, broccoli, lobster, shrimp, crabcake and shrimp... More

We used to love this place but for the last year we have been disappointed each time . The fish is served with too much grease ...especially the coconut shrimp . Too breaded and a lot of grease. The lunch specials are not too bad for the money and i think I like the bread biscuits the best.

I got treated here today by a friend who is as ardent a shrimp fan as I am!!! We started with the Cheese Biscuits, then had a Caesar Salad without Croutons. The all-you-can-eat-shrimp comes also with one additional side and I picked the Grilled Brussels Sprouts, whereas she wanted fries. The shrimp were awesome. I started with 2 helpings of... More

Do not order the flounder... the fish fillets are very thin (which is fine), but the breading is so thick & tough Terrible quality.
