Very good food. Service was good as well. Had a small wait but sat at the bar and had a drink. People at the bar very nice.

We've been here many times! Always had a great seafood meal! For a chain, it's about as good as it gets, in my opinion! The cheddar garlic biscuits are amazing. I usually always want butter on bread rolls or biscuits, but you don't need it with these bad-boys! Really good salads too! The lobster bisque or the clam chowder is... More

It's not the fanciest seafood joint. This one delivers as expected though. Food was properly prepared and came out hot. Biscuits were fresh and salad was cold. Drinks were very good. We had a Long Island and a rum and coke. Service was a little ambitious but attentive and pleasant. It was a nice quick dinner that wasn't fast food.

Coconut shrimp and crab cakes are delicious. The free garlic butter biscuits keep us coming back. Very good service consistently.

I ordered from the 4 course menu, as I find those types of deals usually give good value for money. The clam chowder was watery for my taste, the ranch dressing tasted bottled rather than fresh made. The salmon was overcooked and the soy-ginger sauce was just like a bottled Chinese sauce you can pick up in a grocery store.... More

My husband and I went for lunch at 1pm last Sunday and the service was really, really slow. Restaurant about 1/2 when we arrived and it took over an hour to get our small lunch plates. Way too long to wait for lunch service. My crab pasta was good but very salty - my husband's crab tacos were good.

Red Lobster held true to it's brand. The menu was standard Red Lobster. Our food was prepared well and our server was excellent. We had lobster, crab, shrimp-all good. We dined on Christmas Eve, so the restaurant was crowded. We were in a party of three and were seated quickly. Server was attentive. Light music played in background. We would... More

Just got back from a lunch at Red Lobster and was kind of disappointed that the discount coupons that I brought were only for dinner entries. I was there for the advertised "Garlic-Grilled Red Shrimp " but didn't see that as an option. I should have printed the advertisement out. Our lunches were excellent as usual and the smaller lunch...

Went here to dinner last Friday night. Got there around 5:30pm with 3 adults, a 6yr old and a 2yr old. We were immediately seated. We ordered drinks and the kids food first and our food once the kids good came. The server was terrific with the kids. Great time for all and terrific food.
