Was out to lunch with my sister for the first time in a while. We were greeted very graciously. Once we were seated our waiter came to the table. His name is Willie. I could say in all of the dining that I have done in my lifetime this man is definitely one of the most professional waiters I have... More

We shared a ultimate feast and it was enough for the two of us. Food was great, service outstanding. We giving each other gift certificates and then go out together to Red Lobster. Pretty good idea for a 12 year old.

my brother and I went there in March and it was ok - servers were nice and the food was good --- took a little long to get our food but we were not in a hurry -- so if you are not in a hurry and you like Red Lobster then it's an ok place to eat

I have never been wrong with Red Lobster and the one in Rochester was great. It was a busy saturday night but we had a drink at the bar (highly recommend the Long Island Ice Tea) and a table was open very quickly. Our waiter was handsome and our food was great. What isn't to love?!

The food and drink here is dependably good. Our server was responsive even though he was quite busy. Restrooms are poorly designed and need more frequent cleaning. Overall, good place for dependable flavors.

We went here for dinner during our stay. We arrived about 6:30 on Sunday night. Even though only about half of the place was occupied we had a 15 minute wait for a table. Our server was a little rushed but tried to get to us as fast as she could. We inquired about specials but decided on the admirals... More

Red Lobster, located now at Apache Mall, is more mainstream and less jacket and tie than its earlier form. Our service was superb, which added to a great special early evening out on the town. They have taken the pork chops off the menu which was always my favorite entree, but the items that remain are rich and tasty. There... More
