My spouse had not had lobster in many years so we went to Red Lobster. She was a bit dissappointed in the taste of her lobster. My $15 lunch special was great.

The fish and chips were well seasoned and fried crisp. They arrived at the table hot. Presentation was good with the coleslaw served in a separate bowl on the plate. The biscuits were good as always. Service was quick and friendly.
