I enjoy Red Lobster, and today was no exception. Food was prepared exactly as I requested (special requests are not handled as well by most "chain" restaurants), everything was delicious, and the service was exceptional. Becky was my waitress and she was friendly, helpful, kept my iced tea glass full and delivered my special requests quickly. Combine this with the... More

Red Lobster does not take reservations and we had 8 people coming for a dual 80th birthday party. We had purchased a personalized cake that the greeter said was not allowed but management stepped right in and took the cake to a refrigerator and set a round table for 8 almost immediately. Coming from the Boston area, I had never... More

Decent sized portions and really fresh tasting seafood. We ordered two platters to serve three people and this was more than enough! It was actually Crabfest when we visited Red Lobster, and we ordered two sets of crab legs which were really delicious and meaty. The staff were really pleasant and happy to help.

I went with a choice of 3 shrimp dishes, a little variety. Always hot food and good service. Even tho Darden sold off Red Lobster, they have kept their high standards, and continue to be a great place to eat!!

Dined here on May 5th for our 44th anniversary. Had tropical drinks that were to die for. My husband ordered an entire lobster for dinner. He loved every juicy morsel. I had shrimp done 3 ways with asparagus and Caesar salad. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Can't wait to go again.

Server was friendly and professional...we went at about 4 pm on a Tuesday, not busy at all, seated quickly, fast beverages and food. I ordered the Admirals feast...Everything was soggy and under-fried...Just a tip for all cooks out there...the deep fryer was invented to cook food evenly on the inside and crispy on the outside...i could barely eat my clam...

We eat her whenever we visit Traverse City and the food and service are always good. If you like Red Lobster, this is a good location of the chain.
