We were drawn in by the advertising campaign for the Lobster Fest and ordered the lobster specials. At prices around $30.00 per meal you would think that sticker shock would kick in but once you factor in the Caesar salad and the main course with 2 large lobster tails and he size of the helpings, it turns out to be...

Our first trip to this popular seafood restaurant after a disappointing meal last year; revised menu and food prep process made this much better. Snow crab legs were delicious; service was excellent; a great dinner all around. Pricey, but worth it. Will return.

The Endless Shrimp special is on. The dishes were tasty and the service quick. It was a weekday night and still the place was busy. Can't imagine what the weekend would be like, in terms of crowd.

We have not been to the red lobster in a long time, but this evening we were very happy with our sever Bianca, she was very pleasant and helpful. The lobster shrimp and salmon platter was yummy, also the Pacific snapper was nice. The atmosphere was nice and the place was clean.

Usually a wait. However, we arrived in mid afternoon returning from The Toronto Zoo with no wait. Service was amazing without being overbearing. Drinks and food arrived on time and the food was correctly seasoned and delicious.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
