We went to the Red Lobster because the wait at the nearby Olive Garden (also owned by Darden) was much longer. The restaurant was a bit on the dimly lit side but the service was OK. The salmon was a little better than average, but not outstanding. Portion size was good though.

Living in Canada, we see all ads about Red Lobster, food looks great and could not wait to try. Very disappointed, service was great place was clean but food poor.

Our meal for a family of three was a little pricey, but the quality and portion size was excellent. Always find the service over and above here.

Just had lunch... Steak and turf, with a nice glass of Malbec. I have to say it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. We eat at a lot of nice restaurants worldwide also take lots of cruises, so go me to say this meal was excellent it must be good!

Ordered from the regular menu and the lobster tails were the right size! Aaahhh! So often you end up with a shrimp but these were as expected! Delicious veg and lobster mash...could be better but for the price overall great value!

A rainy Monday brought us to this facility. Greeted with "the kitchen is backed up so no seating"> Went to the bar where Courtney took us under her wing and provided good food & service. Chef came out to inform us wedge salad was not available but filled in. Some management problems here.

Food is good but never got my water refilled. Then had to ask twice for the biscuits that come complimentary. Only second time at a Red Lobster and didn't realize the food was on the expensive side. Fish and chips was good and not badly priced.

I spent $31 on a trio of fried shrimp, shrimp linguini and grilled shrimp. Salad was very cold, old and limp, brussels sprouts were not fresh and were burnt and dry. Shrimp dish tasted like factory food. Decor is dated and worn out looking. Not worth the money. A friend was served a very plain entree of white fish and... More

We arrived at 6pm on a busy Saturday evening and waited 20 minutes to be seated which is not unreasonable. Therefor reservations are recommended to avoid wait time. Once at our table our drinks order was taken promptly and our salads followed a few minutes later.We did not have to wait long for the main courses to arrive and as... More
