We walked here from our hotel which is nice after a long day of driving. We shared one of the seafood dinners and it great plenty for both of us.

Clams, shrimp, scallop and fish await for this mighty dish. Don't get the cup of clam chowder soup though. Portion size is disappointing. Lunch cost $49 including tip for two so not a place I will go often!

We got our food in a timely manner and it was very good and we had decent service until we were ready to get our bill, pay it, and leave. The waitress took a while to get back to our table although she knew we were ready to leave.

Very attentive waitress, "Julia C." made for an enjoyable meal. Seated as soon as we arrived. Meal arrive in quick order and was warm and tasted great. The property was clean inside and out. Appeared to be a good turn over in customers indicating a popular restaurant.

We went for a late lunch. We were one of six tables. We were seated promptly. Our server was less than attentive. My wife ordered soup and salad. The server brought my salad but waited to bring my wife's until she brought the soup and my main course. She should have asked. She never refilled our water glass. She spent... More

We stopped to have dinner at Red Lobster. Our waitress was friendly enough, but when asked about choices of shrimp and fish, she was not very helpful, to the point of being a little rude. The more we thought about her attitude we decided that we would go across the street to Cracker Barrel to eat. The waitress should take... More

We had a party of 6 that included 4 adults and 2 children. We stopped on a Saturday night around 6:30 pm.to celebrate our Grandson's birthday. After waiting close to 45 minutes we asked our party to be split so we could get a table and we were immediately seated. We were disappointed that a party of 6 presented a... More

From the moment we walked in we were made to feel special & welcome. The menu was explained & specials pointed out. Every course was received just as the previous one was almost finished. The lobster was cooked to perfection. The servers were prompt, pleasant, but not intrusive. The manager stopped by to make sure everything was all right &... More

Food is always good at a Red Lobster but the service is not really the best. However, we had a wonderful server. He gave very good attention to our table, and we never had to ask for drink refills, which is a major pet peeve of mine.
