I was a bit leery to return to the Bay City Red Lobster because the service and quality has been declining over the past few years, but we were all pleasantly surprised to have a great lunch with a wonderful server. As a matter of fact, everyone in the restaurant that we came in contact with was extremely friendly and... More

We visited late on a weekday for dinner. There were many empty tables but were told it would be a 10 minute wait. We went to the bar but there was no bartenders on duty. We fetched the greeter who eventually found a waitress to pour us a drink after most of the 10 minute wait. Once seated two wait... More

My husband ordered shrimp Alfredo, and if someone were to bring the dish to us at home, there's no way I would have believed it came from Red Lobster. The noodles were mushy, and the sauce had no flavor. If we ate at home, though, we at least would have enjoyed the atmosphere. We were seated near the kitchen, and... More

We went for Father's Day lunch with my in-laws. While we have been to this establishment before it has been awhile. Not very crowded, never a good sign. I watched our waitress have to clean the tables in our area versus having someone else do it, second sign. We waited for about an hour for our meals. As you might... More

You may have to wait a bit but the time goes quickly! They do accept large parties, just have to wait, but worth it! Their specials they offer throughout the year is always great, service is always fast once you get seated, and you do not have to wait long to be fed! I go here quite often with family.

They forgot my lobster on a lobster bake. Wife's lobster was over done and rubbery. Table was dirty when we were seated. Wife's water glass was dirty. And our biscuits were very under done. We were told waitress would bring manager...manager never came. A nice young man (who was our waiter a couple weeks back comped 20% of $70 bill.... More

The seafood is very good but not great. The portions are so-so size. Service is always great and drinks are done well. The restaurant here in Bay City is always very welcoming and pretty good for a chain restaurant.

This month the Girl's Night was at the Red Lobster in Bay City, Mi. OK. #1 easy to find. #2 the people that work there are GREAT! I was happy and pleased with the service. The table was cleared when we were ready, the iced tea, coffees and sodas were refilled quickly and all was good. The food - Ahhhhhhh.... More

I don't like writing bad reviews, partly because it means I've had a bad experience, but partly too because you never know, it could just be the circumstance on that day. But I have to say, over the years this location has consistently done something poorly on each visit. You would think I would learn and with this review, I... More
