At one time this was the place to go. There is just nothing special about Red Lobster anymore. The biscuits are still great though. Service was good but it took awhile to get items to the table.

Salads arrived approximately 15 minutes later. And then we waited. And we waited more! Server brought fresh drinks and we ask about our order. She replied it wouldn't... More

I have tried to give this place a try too many times and it is terrible every time! The place is kept so cold your food is cold before you're able to enjoy. Good luck getting your order right. And service is nothing to mention.

Food coming out was quite a bit slow, but the biscuits and salad were very fresh. Refills of shrimp came out quickly. Overall a good experience.

The food here was excellent - had lobster. Think they could expanded the menu as being from New England, some of my favorites are missing. My waiter, Heath, was the best I've seen in a long time - Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
