First let me say from the start we do not eat at Red Lobster very often. What brought us to Red Lobster was the fact we had received gifts cards for Red Lobster that needed to be used and it was Lobster Fest month.. We live in an area that has some very good seafood establishments all of which are... More

I took my wife to dinner and enjoyed the experience from start to finish. We started with cocktails, in which you get to keep the glass. The waitress was pleasant and the food was cooked and served to perfection.

A good friend and neighbor decided to treat me to lunch here since she had heard they had a special "Lobster-Lunch" for only $9.99. Getting there was a hassle, since there was something going on at the Stadium in Port Charlotte and it took us a whole hour to get to the restaurant. But as soon as we told Luz... More

Our server, Michelle, was professional, personable, helpful, attentive...perfect in every way. The chef, Leo, really outdid himself because our meal was incredible. My husband's Surf & Turf kept him completely satisfied, enough so that he sent his compliments to the chef. Not only was the main entree (lobster & steak) perfectly prepared & seasoned, but the sides were perfect as... More

Always when in Port Charlotte, we go there a couple of times. Never had to wait for a table. The food is awesome. It's The best Seafood place in the region. Very attentive service. You gotta go there.

Since Lobsterfest is back, my husband and I, we pay another visit. He got the New Lobsterfest Surf & Turf. This is a combo of baked Maine lobster tail with seafood stuffing, a wood-grilled sirloin steak and shrimp in a lobster cream sauce, served with mashed potatoes and roasted haricot vert (baby green beans) and mushrooms. He said DELICIOUS. I... More

Generally not a big fan of chain restaurants and my last visit to a Red Lobster restaurant (not in Florida) was not impressive. As a matter of fact, I was not excited about another visit. My friends assured me that I would be surprised and I was!! Not only did we have a wonderful meal, but service was excellent. Our... More
