Never having gone to a Red Lobster, I anticipated a typical franchise like Dennys. I must say I was pleasantly surprised, both with the environment and the quality of the food. The service was quite good. I had a combination plate and did not regret for a moment ordering such an expensive dish. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

We decided on Wednesday to have dinner here. So glad we did. Our food was fantastic but our waiter was fabulous. He was so attentive, helpful and kind. Great overall experience!

Is red lobster. Everything was as expected. Shrimp scampi were good. Shrimp Alfredo was kind of cold. The crab cakes where the worse crab cakes I ever had, mostly burned flour. I probably will wait another 20 years before I go back. Service was okay.

This was the first time either my wife or I had ever been to a Red Lobster. I put that first bite of steak in my mouth and BAM! One of the finest steaks I have ever eaten! The seafood was first rate. The biscuits are fabulous! I believe our servers name was Al. What a great job he did!... More

Really good service! The lobster stuffed mushrooms were great. Very hot, almost too hot. The shrimp fest my hubby had was: Scampi...good BBQ shrimp...good Peppercorn...simply fried with a dusting of Parmesan. My lobster bisque was bland and too thick. All of our cutlery was smudged and dirty. There was actually a chunk of dried food on my wine glass.

This was a typical experience at Red Lobster. We enjoyed it. Nice waitress. Split a meal and they were good about helping with that. Food was delicious. I'd eat here again.
