Service by Samantha was fantastic! The Crab Alfredo was fantastic, lots of crab! The grilled shrimp tacos were fantastic! Of course, who doesn't love the biscuits. I'll be back more often. Look forward to trying the Lobster tacos.

Best meal I had on this vacation! Wonderful service and fantastic food and beverage. Enjoyed a combo of salmon, shrimp and lobster tail on a bed of rice with asparagus and salad. My Grandson enjoyed looking at the live lobster tank!

I like Red Lobsters. They are all a bit different depending on where you go. They always seem to have good service and good food. Our Traverse City location is usually very busy during meal times so you may want to come at off times....More

Red Lobster does NOT offer a senior citizens discount. You can call them to see if they have changed their policies at 1800 red lobster. Good luck.
