One of our favorite places to eat My wife loves shrimp and so we stop at a Red Lobster when ever we find one in what ever town we are in.
The food is all way's good and along with the service.
They keep the place well taken care of and clean.
A very good location with good parking and easy place to find right off of 14 .

We have good friends who love this place, and frankly, when we treated them to the Mankato Red Lobster recently, we had a good time. That said, while the service is great and enthusiastic — mostly coming from the abundant college students in the community — the food varies widely, from very pleasant to "meh". The positive is obvious to Red Lobster aficionados. The negatives: The wine list is atrocious and expensive. The lobster bisque reminds me of the library paste I used to sample in grammar school, too many of the dishes rely on the American fallback of salt and sugar, and in general everything expensive for what you get. 'Nuff said.

Went on a busy Friday night but only had to wait 20 minutes. The service was very good. We all had the endless shrimp which the waitress let us try some that were not on the list. She was very knowledgeable and explain what each was.

15 of our family recently met here for lunch. I hadn't called ahead for reservations (which we will do next time), but the staff and management was so great to accommodate our group. We stayed several hours and we never felt pressured to leave and were treated so graciously. Our wait-staff was great at service, continually offering beverages. And of course the food was delicious as always!! It all arrived at the same time, hot from the kitchen, and as ordered. Thanks so much to Red Lobster for being gracious and accommodating to us. We've been to Red Lobster many, many times through the years and it's consistently great.

I usually don't like Red Lobsters. They are overpriced, the food is just okay, and the wait staff are extremely boring (going through the motions) and "plastic." I was pleasantly surprised here. Me waiter and the other wait staff I observed were genuinely nice and helpful to their customers. They were attentive, not pushy, and earned the nice tip that was left them. This manager trains correctly. The pricing is still a bit high, the food was okay....but, this locations service kind of made up for it.
