Server was indifferent toward customers, but the food was fine. Enjoying a nice dinner out for wife's birthday.

Food was OK not outstanding, I thought it was a little pricey for dinner. My enter one Gia's of wine was over forty dollars with tip. The decor is old and outdated

We went in 8:00 last night for dinner. They don't close until 10. The floor had not been kept clean. Upon being seated the waitress stopped by and took out drink order. After ordering, we got our clam chowder first. It was lukewarm. We sent the bowls back to be reheated. Our waitress brought those back and said our order... More

Lunch with family and I did not pick this place. Average cookie cutter restaurant chain. Service was good, had a appetizer and lunch special. Nothing exciting and an average lunch that was overpriced for size and quality.

We ate at the Red Lobster and were disappointed in the quality of the shrimp. The salmon was fine, and the sides were delicious. But the texture of the shrimp seemed like it had been minced and reshaped before being fried.

Red Lobster celebrates its Lobsterfest and the pictures in promotional material and ads that whet one's appetite. But the dining experience was not as satisfactory as we had hoped. The restaurant is popular but we were seated promptly. Later, there was a large number of people waiting to be seated. The lobster-seafood-artichoke-cheese appetizer served with nacho chips was tasty, and... More

The wait staff was nice, but seemed very busy, which was strange since the restaurant was almost empty. The food was good, but an almost $60 bill (1 soda, no alcohol) for 2 people and a toddler should mean great food. We haven't been here in a while, but we probably won't be back.
