Nice to see Red Lobster offering some lunch specials on the weekend now. The food was just right in terms of proportion. Service was friendly and efficient. The food was hot and fresh. All around a good experience.

It's easy to drop $20 to $30 per person dining at Red Lobster, but the budget-conscious can get a fine seafood dinner (with all the cheesy biscuits you can eat) for only $10. Come at noon. If you can't, ask about lunch specials which are served in the evening.

lots to eat on the admiral's feast-- best was the fried flounder and fried shrimp. ok was the scallops and the small clam pieces. The salad was on the small side but the vinaigrette was good. Those red lobster dinner rolls are loaded with calories but were a little on the undone side today. Broccoli was steamed but somehow dried... More

From the time they opened until several months ago, but no more. Very expensive, bad food, bad service. Don't bother. If you want real seafood, go to Seafarer's down on 360 east of Mechanicsville.

My husband grew up with Red Lobster but for me, I never ate there. I grew up in Baltimore and we had seafood on every corner, no Red Lobsters. We took our son to have lobster today and I have to say, I was thoroughly shocked at the delicious food! Our Server was wonderful! She anticipated our every need and... More

We went for Crab Fest and it was too much goodness to describe! As usual, there was good attentive service and tons of good food - almost too much! There were 6 of us and we ate until we couldn't eat anymore and everything was good from the steaks to the giant seafood display plates! There was no waiting at... More

This is my favorite restaurant in the Richmond area, and Red Lobster is my favorite big time restaurant. I always find the food first-rate. I love the biscuits, and the waiters/waitrresses are not stingy with them. The service is swift and professional. My favorite menu item is the Sailor's Platter. But I never have selected an item that was not... More

Three adults went for dinner on a Wednesday about 6pm. We were greeted and seated immediately. They have tables, booths and a lounge area with bar counter. The server came to get our drink order and introduced another server who was in training. The menu was extensive and a little cumbersome to get through with all the pages of cocktails.... More

Just like any red lobster I've ever been to. Food didn't disappoint, our waitress was quiet but attentive and fantastic, and we were seated immediately. Just stopped in for a quick bite before flying out of the nearby airport, we were not disappointed.
