The waitress was very good and the food was fine except for a couple of items. The soup was cold and we asked waitress to reheat. By the time we just finished soup our dinners came before we could finish salad. Shrimp was good however the corn on the Cobb was cold like it just came out of refrigerator. Apparently... More

Salmon was good too. The shrimp in 4 varieties and locally caught was the best. My lobster and crab had been under a heat lamp too long. The bread rolls are the best! We ate here 2 nights. Vegetabel sides are exceptional. So a hedged 5 stars

There was no problem with the food or service. We were promptly seated and served. However, when we were presented our bill there was printed on the bottom suggested tip amounts at !5%, 18% and 20%. This is all well and good and convenient. BUT is was based upon the total amount including tax. I don't believe one should tip... More

As Red Lobster is a chain, you can be certain that all Red Lobsters are created equal. Not a bad restaurant certainly much better than Gilligans. We go there often. Food is good and they will tailor any request that you may have.

Took forever to be seated and restaurant wasn't even that busy. Ordered steak medium rare, and it was too tough to cut. Found it was medium well.

Though I am a strict vegetarian, I went there along with my friends. The ambience was excellent. They had live lobsters in showcase. I had limited option for me. But whatever was served was tasty. The staff were extremely helpful in making sure that I get something that I can eat. Their Breads were great in taste.

Decided to go since we had a gift card from Christmas. Being a Tuesday night at around 6 pm we didn't expect a crowd and we weren't disappointed. We were disappointed that we were told there would be a 5 to 10 minute wait when we could see there were very few tables. As a matter of fact there were... More
