Joined friends tonight for a little birthday get tigether. We were seated rather promptly after a 25 min wait. All of us ordered something different but we all ended up ordering the greenbeans and mushrooms as one of our sides. Salad arrived first along with the yummy cheddar cheese biscuits and the main course arrived shortly after. We all kind... More

First the good- the food was great. Hot, tasted fresh, and arrived quickly. Now the bad- the service. Hubby ordered and waitress tried to upsell. Hubby declined and requested original combo which was shrimp and steak. Dinner arrived with only strak. Called waitress over WHO ARGUED and said that wasn't what he ordered. Like really argued that he hadn't ordered... More

Actually the best part of our visit was the waiter. Omar H. Did such a good job we were impressed. He is exceptional. He went over and above and made us feel very glad to have chosen this restaurant today. The food was good, and the garlic biscuits were superb and fluffy. We look forward to our next visit. However... More

Just like any restaurant, they are trying to flip the table as fast as they can. Unfortunately it leaves us the consumer looking stupid as we are two bites into our meal and here goes the check. The crabs were disappointing.. Seems like they were steamed and not boiled which gives it that still frozen flavor. Just not a good... More

Did the same yesterday. Low and behold this is a great place to eat lobster at a fair price. Staff friendly,... More

We were told it would be a 15 to 20 minute wait for seating, however, it turned out to be about 5 minutes. Adrian Moore, the General Manager came to the... More

A standard Red Lobster. We had good service, the food was actually a little better than the ones I've been in. Not bad at all.
