We seem to always stop here when we get to Orlando- not wanting to fight the Disney Springs crowd. This time the food was just ok. Not bad but, not good either. Seems like it has been better before. Probably won't go back

The food is what you would expect from a chain restaurant. My wife loves to eat here, as we do not have them in Maine. I wasn't impressed with the wait staff, as the waitress had no idea what type of draft beer they had,...More

The shrimp were good as usual. I tried the Tuesday special of wood fire grilled shrimp. They were delicious and healthy at the same time. The cheesy biscuits were freshly baked and wonderful to eat.

We visited Red Lobster and were easily able to order safe food by referring to their allergy information online and notifying our server of our allergies. Food was hot, fresh and delicious. Our server Billy was very attentive. We will be back!

I stopped for a take out dinner while on a business trip. The bartender who gave me my food checked everything before I left. Asked if I needed anything else. The food was excellent. Hot. Delicious. Great place.

We stayed on the 4th floor and we had a great view of the pool. I would ask for the higher floors so you can see the Disney Parks and the fireworks at night on the west side.
