Service was fast and friendly. Our waitress kept our drinks and cheddar bay biscuits refilled. The salads were crisp and served with plenty of dressing. Our meals came out quickly and hot. The lobster pizza and fisherman's feast were all delicious and cooked to perfection. Great Red Lobster location.

Molly was our server and she was fantastic! We both started started out with a Pina Colada. It had the right amount of blended coconut, pineapple juice and coconut rum. (Sorry forgot to get a picture of it lol) We ordered the calamari. For some reason Red Lobster started adding vegetables with the calamari. We asked to leave that off.... More

My husband took me there a couple nights ago and I must say it was clean, great service and good food. The biscuits are great and warm and I enjoyed the garlic shrimp platter with rice and broccoli.

I like Red Lobster in general, but the Oak Ridge location seems to be a cut above in terms of cleanliness, which is apparent when you walk in the door. The folks who work there are so nice and accommodating as well.

Hey it's a chain and its seafood in the middle of the USA but it's pretty good. The mussels with garlic and wine sauce are very good. The ultimate feast is good. Order the lobster tail wood fire for extra flavor. Top it off with a draft beer and happy times are here.

Just visited there this past Tuesday. We went for the all you can eat shrimp. Shrimp was good, when we could get some delivered to our table. They were not that busy and each time we ordered it would take at least 15-20 minutes for the food to get to our table. Guess that way people get tired of waiting... More

Went to Oak Ridge with husband and daughter. Long day at work. 3 hours on the road and then another doing stuff in Oak Ridge. It was getting late and we were starving. Red Lobster was close to hotel. Only 20 minute wait for a Friday night. Waitress was so personable. Food came out quick and was excellent.

Our family enjoys Red Lobster after church on Sunday now and then. Even as busy as they are we never have to wait long for a table. Fresh salads, awesome biscuits, and well prepared seafood. Diverse menu that includes steak or chicken entrees. Pleasant family atmosphere. The coconut shrimp is my favorite. The option of 'creating your own seafood platter'... More

I took the family out for some seafood here and I have to say that it was the second worst fish and chips I ever had. I grew up in New England, lived in Australia for four years and travelled to England, so I know good fish and chips when I have it, or in this case, when I don't.... More
