I ordered the endless shrimp and the scampi is my overall favorite with the breaded shrimp coming in second. The peach tea is great as is the calm chowder! The service was good but a little slower than I would have liked. The price is right foe endless shrimp though!

I'm so happy that I made it back out to the all you can eat shrimp special before it ends! The Korean BBQ shrimp are awesome, and so are the Parmesan peppercorn shrimp. Our server, Shannon, was so polite and helpful. Very bubbly personality! Their building was kept very tidy as well (I always check bathrooms and it was clean.)... More

No rolls, said that the waitresses were fighting over them... Our waitress was clueless on pricing. Just not the typical red lobster service and food you normally get.

We have been to this particular red lobster several times in Springfield Illinois. The service is always attentive, the place is always impeccably clean, and the food is very consistent. We love that they have fresh fish and seafood specials available all the time but we particularly love their biscuits that come warm prior to starting a meal.

Melanie H was our server. She was patient while we made our menu selections and made sure to check back on us frequently. The food was delicious! Very enjoyable evening!

We visited a few days ago for dinner and we were very pleased. We were seated promptly (within 5 minutes) even though they appeared very busy. Our server was friendly and attentive to our needs. The biscuits were perfect, as usual! They have the all you can eat shrimp special going on right now, but I wasn't that hungry. I... More

We arrived at 4:45 on a Saturday night for a table of 6. We were told that the wait would be 45-60 minutes. No problem. When we were finally taken back to our table, I felt like a captive that was never going to be able to leave. 4 of us ordered the endless shrimp, along with two kids meals... More

Love Red Lobster, even more when it's time for endless shrimp! Great time to sample those dishes you think you might like! Great food today, as usual for Red Lobster, and great service! We felt like they were genuinely happy to serve us...and you don't get that everywhere!!! The manager even stopped by the table to chat for a while.... More

Our first visit to a Red Lobster so we have no comparisons to make. We were seated and served very quickly. Our waitress was polite and efficient and made us feel very welcome. The food was tasty and well cooked and there were no negatives to mention. We didn't order dessert. The price seemed reasonable to us.

Thank Patrick B
