We had a lobster and sea food as a special family occasion. Lobster was well cooked and tasty. We all loved the food and staff were helpful and polite. There are various plates of lobster tails. Go for the triple lobster or NY sirloin steak and lobster. You won't regret if you like your proteins

We were staying in a local hotel and stopped in to order food to go. We sat at the bar and had a drink while we're waiting on our food. After we placed our order someone took a phone order and told them it would be about 20 minutes. After a half an hour we still didn't have our food... More

Well, the meal was tasty and was served expediently. Very nice server. My complaint is with the prices...almost every dish was $20 to $40 for an entree?? How... More

We had a large party with two servers and a trainee. They were excellent! The dining room was very clean, but the furniture is getting old. Chairs were unstable. The food is at best average. Certainly not the quality of high end seafood restaurants. The choices are too many with a complex menu. More is not always better. Won't go... More

Excellent. These people want to impress you. If something is wrong talk to the manager! They really care about food and service.

My husband and I stopped for lunch around 1 pm on Saturday, and the restaurant was not crowded. I could see numerous open booths and tables, but we were handed a pager for a 10 minute wait. We opted to sit at the bar, and we're waited on immediately by the bartender who was extremely nice. The food was fresh... More

Terrific upgrade to now have a wood fired grill. The wood fire grilled shrimp was sensational! The side dishes seemed to improve also. Hadn't been at a Red Lobster for quite a while, definitely going back soon now that there is good reason to do so. Only reason to not rate it as excellent is the service was slow. Courteous,...

Our server was decent but forgot items several times. Three of the four of us became ill from the meal - two before exiting the parking lot. Our table was beside the doorway to the liquor and a back room. Frequently groups of 3-6 staff would congregate directly behind us chatting loudly, complaining, talking suggestively and giving each other massages... More

The food has gone downhill for quite a while. Some past visits: Flounder for lunch. Tasted frozen like something from the supermarket. Dinner..fish combo: fish tasteless, cheddar rolls stale, shrimp Alfredo tasted like those frozen $1.00 dinners.AND overpriced!!! Never, ever will eat there again.
