Came to Buffalo for a business trip and got not much information around the place I was going to stay. Went to Red Lobster by the chance and generally satisfied. Price was not so cheap but reasonable, staffs were kind except only one.

This is a nice place to go where you know there will be consistency in your meal. We eat there about every couple of months. It is my Mother-in-laws favorite. I had my usual Admirals Feast and was stuffed. Of course we had Mussels which...More

We have eaten here many times but noticed a significant bump in prices and new "up charges" with meals. They might be driving loyal customers away. Food is typically good but never fabulous
