My wife had seen the commercials on TV for Lobsterfest and wanted to try it out. I had the Surf & Turf and and my wife had the the lobster-stuffed tilapia. The service was pretty good and the food was excellent. The servings are ample so we had enough to take home for another meal.

My wife had no question on where we would go for our Valentine's Day: Red Lobster. As we drove she read off the menu choices and luckily we got a parking space close up. Very busy with a line waiting, but in no time we were seated and Jeromy started our dinner. If there is one thing that makes me... More

This particular Red Lobster location isn't all that different from other restaurants in that chain. The first thing you notice when you approach the building is the incessant 'boom boom' of so-called music. It's not loud enough to be clearly heard, but too loud to be ignored. When you are inside the restaurant it's not quite as bad, but still... More

We always sit on the bar area if we can, the service seems to be a little better there and the ambiance is good. We had an early light dinner there recently, the soup is consistently good, both the clam chowder and lobster bisque, the biscuits yummy. My salad with shrimp on in was very small though good. My husband... More

Red Lobster has been around a long time. The food is good, you don't go here for new and interesting cuisine...it's Red Lobster. they have good shrimp, fish, and turf fare too. This restaurant has great service, clean interior and friendly staff.

I just moved to Ocala from CT, and we only had 1 Red Lobster in our area, and lets just say it has issues. So when a friend who was visiting wanted to go to Red Lobster, for their popcorn shrimp I was skeptical. I was impressed. He had a very large order of popcorn shrimp which came with a... More

My fiancee and I decided to go to Red Lobster for dinner on my birthday. Like most red lobsters, the food was great but the service really stood out. My fiancee ordered the endless shrimp and his plate was never empty. Our waiter, Josh Q. was incredible! The people next table over said he was the fastest waiter ever and... More

Food was fresh and well prepared. Our server was friendly and efficient. Although this is a chain, our dining experience was quite nice. Great atmosphere as well.

Good Location, Good Food, Good Service - a winning combination. This is how a chain continues to flourish. Tonight was no exception, my "room-mate had the salmon which she enjoys more than is natural - I think she's part Bear! I had the Crab Legs, baked potato, Cole Slaw, Asparagus. Great Service from an attentive waitress made the entire meal.... More
