Alexandra was our waitress! She was very good and friendly! The Dinner was a little slow but they were very busy. Grandson ordered the shrimp unlimited shrimp . They only bring out 5 grilled and 5 Mediterranean shrimp at a time. It took a long time to get a second order, he then ordered and another order right away thank goodness because it took a long time to get the next order. He is a growing boy and can eat a lot, but it took so long that he ate some of my food to hold him over. We did enjoyed ourselves just wished they didn't take so long to bring reorders.

Thank Tricia R

My granddaughter, her husband, my great grandson and l went here for a nice family dinner. We were seated immediately, but It took a while before the server came to our table. She took drink orders and we finally got the drinks we ordered a half an hour after she took our orders. She had said that she would be bringing the biscuits, but didn't. When she brought the drinks, she said that she would be back in a bit to take our order. It took a good 20 minutes before she came back. She did take our order, but didn't ask if we would like any refills of our drinks. Instead of our salad coming to us, while we waited for our dinner order, we got the salad and our dinner at the same time. A little later she did bring the biscuits. We had a Gift Card, but our server told us that we couldn't use it because it didn't have ''Red Lobster'' on it. She said there were ''tents'' on the table to let people know that, but in the area we were in, we could not see any ''tents''. She brought one with her. A little late l think. As much as we like Red Lobster, it will take a while for us to get over this bad experience before we even think about returning.

Wild caught salmon is the way to go! Get the dinner portion! It is enough salmon to split with two people! Add the sesame ginger glaze and have your salmon grilled. Broccoli and bake potato are the way to go for side options! Salad is small. I'd suggest upgrading to a larger salad option. The cheddar biscuits are delicious as always.

We were staying overnight in West DesMoines as we were passing through, and decided to have dinner here. Although the restaurant was busy, we were greeted with a friendly staff and the wait was only about ten minutes. Our waitress, Trish, was professional and attentive. As always, our meal was delicious!

The food was great, and had a lot to choose from. The customer service, was great! We had a large group of 9 people, and the food was delivered, in a very reasonable time. I would highly recommend this restaurant, if you want great customer service!
