I have been to this red lobster multiple times with my boyfriend. It is always crowded,the parking lot always full and the hostess always sit us by the door. We freeze the whole night. The food is okay. The drinks were okay. The only reason we went here was to use a gift card.

We got off the highway to find some lunch and found a Red Lobster. We ordered Parmesan crusted tilapia. The fish was over cooked - the crust mushy. The salad had spent a long time in the refrigerator. I had the roasted carrot and butternut squash. The carrots were just about raw and the squash was not much better, even... More

I would generally say the food is good to very good, the fried clam strips did not seem to have much clam in them and my daughter's lobster was undercooked. The fried shrimp and cheesy rolls were great! The portions were large and we took a second meal home. For the price I would say the food is very good.... More

This is a family favorite and heaven for seafood lovers. My son has been coming here with family for years but it was my first time trying it. None of us went for the lobster but the other seafood platters that included shrimps and scalops too. All dishes were very tasty and very buttery. They serve some famous biscuits that... More

Pleasant atmosphere! Always a very long wait. Lobster is not always tender but overall nice experience! I had an unpleasant experience with a takeout order one night. Had to pick it up at the bar and the hostess was less than friendly. She was actually very very rude.

Though I would not normally dine at Red Lobster , it was in close proximity to my hotel, and I was very pleased that I gave it a chance I had a delicious combination meal of crab, scampi, breaded shrimp and small lobster tail for $29. It was served with a delicious Caesar salad, and of course their cheesy biscuits.... More

We recently went to this Red Lobster. Food was tasty and portions were large. We had the lobster tail as part of our meal and it was delicious and a nice size. I noticed that the prices have gone up since the last time we ate here. Our server was friendly and great.

Thank Gershep
