When did Red Lobster let their restaurant fall so low? It used to be a great place to go for after church lunch or a relaxing dinner. The prices keep going up and the portions keep shrinking. I keep giving them "one more chance" and they keep disappointing. Sorry, but Red Lobster is out of my lunch rotation...permanently!

Me and girlfriend went on a Wednesday night and after being seated never got waited on till after 20 minutes and finally got ahold of a manager. Waitress came and took our order and my girlfriend ordered a 4 course meal deal. She didn't get her soup or her desert that was suppose to come with it. When I unwrapped... More

What should have been a great dining experience was turned into terrible one. We were told the front it would be about a 20 minute wait. Ok I could deal with that. What I didn't expect however was to be passed over to a couple that arrived a good 10 minutes after us. The girl named Tia evidently didn't bother... More

I ordered the wood grilled chicken tacos (I believe that's what it was called) the other day and I have to admit...it was DELICIOUS! I have never eaten at Red Lobster, due to not enjoying sea food...but I will be going back!

Went with family for dinner after a graduation. Staff was VERY accomodating to the 12 of us. Went out of their way to get us settled and served, very attentive to us. We spilled a drink and had to have someone clean it up...no complaints got right to it. Can't say enough about how nice these people were. Nice, nice,nice!... More

Yes the cheese biscuits were fabulous. The fried seafood was nothing but frozen out of the box stuff. The King crab legs were nice size and very good, but the salmon was overcooked and dry.

The food is always good, here. The service is top of the line and the fresh seafood menu always has something good for everyone. I have been visiting this location for many years and have only one complaint; it's not close to anything. However, the food and service are worth the drive. I love the Walt's famous shrimp, scallops, lobster,... More

Unlike Joe's Crab Shack, the Abilene Red Lobster offers a fresh seafood menu. The fresh seafood is usually shown on the "specials" board as you come into the restaurant. You can still select a live lobster from their tank. The meals are visually pleasing when served. They look more like chef-inspired meals from TV rather than a chain restaurant's offerings.... More

The wife & I have went to this restaurant almost every year for the past 15 years to celebrate our anniversary. With this year being our 38th yes we went again. This time on a Sunday evening. First we went in & saw only 3 tables occupied, a slow night. Which usually means good service since they don't have much... More
