Where the heck do I start? Our waitress was very nice and polite, but lacked some knowledge on the menu, and messed up a little bit on remembering our order however, her friendliness made up for it. Now to the important part. With the exception of the Cheese Biscuits, and my Wife's Mashed Potato's, the meal sucked! We started with... More

We decided to eat here with a coupon on Sunday. I used call ahead seating and when we got there there was still a 10-15 min wait. There were others waiting and we saw many empty tables. We decided to eat at the bar. No one was there. My wife had the shrimp fettuccine and I had the endless shrimp.... More

We had the crab legs. Could have been hotter. But everything else was great, especially the service.

Looked forward to eating here. Stopped on a Thursday at 6 p.m. 15 minutes wait no problem. Got buzzer and went to bar to get drink. No bartender. Waited 15 minutes. Began to leave and bartender showed up. He took three others orders and filled them. Completely ignored us and began filling restaurant or dress. We then walked out and... More

This is one of our favorites. You will leave full. We always have Walt's Favorite. The warm cheese read is fantastic!

Just delicious, fresh and great service. Worth the price. Plenty of food: choice of salad, biscuits plus the main dish. Highly recommend it.

I usually keep to local restaurants but went for a friends birthday and we had the best experience with Patti , she made our night! She was a wonderful server and VERY knowledgeable about the seafood. The upgraded crab legs came out looking dry and she immediately mentioned that she wanted to see them cracked open to double check. They... More

Great service at this location. I had the large Alaskan crab, and actually couldn't finish it! Don't bother ordering corn. Dry and over seasoned. Asparagus side was good. Lobster bisque had some dry lumps of lobster and too much salt. All in all, though, we enjoyed our meal.

I stopped into Red lobster last week as I was craving seafood, I ordered the tilapia dinner for about 14 bucks as I was not ready to dish out 30 plus bucks for lobster and crab in Minnesota. The service was ok but there were times when I am waiting for my water glass to be filled as I was... More

I haven't been to any Red Lobster lately, but we were surprised at the menu changes. Lots of seafood variety for sure, but the prices sure have gone up over the last couple years. We had the fish & chips (average) and the lobster tacos (very good). The beer was cold and fresh. The server was very nice and prompt... More
