The food is always awesome here and the servers are very friendly. Great location located close to the freeway and lodging. If your going for dinner I recommend getting there around 5pm or shortly before. I normally arrive around 6on or later and 9/10 times you will be looking at anywhere from a 15 min to 1 hour wait, any... More

Finally got to go to Red Lobster in Lynnwood, WA. Drove down from Vancouver, Canada just for lunch! Really great food, and service. Lobster surprisingly good, coconut shrimp and pineapple dip amazing and share a lobster pizza for a starter for 4 people. Very full menu. Scott, our server, was just great. The biscuits are to die for and we... More

Staff were friendly and efficient; building was clean with lots of room between tables so we didn't feel crowded nor hear the conversations of other diners; the food was tasty. The server placed the wrong meals in front of us causing confusion. I've had better tasting lobster served at home. The salmon on my plate was tasteless. It is hard... More

Often go to a Red Lobster just for the lobster on my birthday, decided to make a change this time and had a delicious Four course "special" that was excellent. It was about $18.00 and a good value. They run the special M-Thursday. The four of us all had different choices and were pleased with our meals. We got there... More

Very nice meal with family. My lobster was unfortunately underdone, but the server noticed before I dug in, and made sure it was sent back quickly. I have never had someone "de-shell" a lobster for me before, but I loved it. They gave me a free dessert as an apology for the wait for my meal, without prompting. Prices are... More

For a family of four, cost was $150. Food presentation was good but was served nearly cold. Service was excellent. Won't be dining there again.

Great food, great service and fantastic food. Usually I only get to see the TV ads as we don't have a Red Lobster in British Columbia. As I was in the area and with a friend that had been there before, we went for dinner. I had the Lobster Bisque and an appie plate with coconut shrimp. My friend had... More

Always a very busy place, I suggest a call ahead for reservations. a super place to celebrate events, like anniversary, birthday, family reunions and much more. you can always count on excellent service, attentive staff and generally the food is in the top 10 percent in the nations. The local Lynnwood location recently remodeled and the waiting area is larger,... More
