We decided on Wednesday to have dinner here. So glad we did. Our food was fantastic but our waiter was fabulous. He was so attentive, helpful and kind. Great overall experience!

Is red lobster. Everything was as expected. Shrimp scampi were good. Shrimp Alfredo was kind of cold. The crab cakes where the worse crab cakes I ever had, mostly burned flour. I probably will wait another 20 years before I go back. Service was okay.

This was a typical experience at Red Lobster. We enjoyed it. Nice waitress. Split a meal and they were good about helping with that. Food was delicious. I'd eat here again.
