I've been to quite a few Red Lobsters and this one was just as you would expect. I think the food is generally the same no matter where you go - I just expect it to be hot, not overcooked, and taste like I'm expecting it to taste. This Red Lobster satisfied that requirement. One problem I think Red Lobster... More

I used to love the fresh salad, it used to be a good looking salad, not so much at our last visit. Price's are out of "whack" for the product, still editable but not to the standard of the price increase ($3-$5) per selection. We had two children from another table practically sitting under our booth playing games on mom's... More

I know it is hard to find help, I understand. But when spending $85, it should be better! Waited half an hour for a seat at 9pm. Waitress was awful. Never filled coffee cup or water glasses. I had to walk to the bar to ask. I ordered Endless Shrimp, and was not offered a second order. I would have... More

The food is probably pretty good but if your server is not attentive, forgetful, or apparently tired of working, it affects your taste level. Your taste level becomes critical, overly sensitive to minor variations in appearance, sauce, temperature or expectation. Our server could not remember any requested service even when she originated the suggested,"would you like any thing else?. The... More

Wow, what a special night. From the greeting when we arrived to the check at the end it was a perfect experience. I'm saving the food part of the review for last. I believe that any meal is a theatrical experience. The first act is the greeting at the door, seating the GUESTS, the server delivering the coup de main... More

Had a steamed lobster tail with veggies and a salad, and all were very good. Good service and a good martini. In a pinch, this is a step above fast food.

Hosts were not welcoming. Didn't smile, say hello, ask any questions.. Just handed us a buzzer. We sat down on a booth by the front door and waited for our buzzer to go off. Only took 2 mins and we went back to the host stand. The young woman took our buzzer and yelled a server's name several times before... More

The staff is excellent and shows sign of really good management. The food is consistently good and we've eaten here for many years, without being disappointed. Some of the best servers around - especially for a chain restaurant.
