The classic standard for seafood that is quickly served and fresh. The biscuits are worth the trip alone

The food is delicious - fresh seafood and there is a huge menu to select from. It does smell a bit moldy when one first walks in, but I thought it might be all the seafood that is stored! The service is pleasant as well but when more people arrive it does get a bit slower so be sure to... More

Huge place. Nice ambiance. Choose between table or booth ( or which is available) . Be ready to wait during peak hours. Ample selection of choices varying from salads, soups, appetizers and main entrees that include fish , shrimps , crabs and lobster . If you want meat they have chicken , steak and wings too. We had the Caesar... More

Food was ok, but the overall experience was a miss because the restaurant was dirty, had food dropped in all the walkways, and there was a lingering odor of mold in the air. There are much better restaurants in the area to choose from. Pass this one by.

This was a disappointing. We went in for the Lobster Fest. There were several choices. Each choice was a predetermined set plate. I got the Dream Plate. It looked good. The spaghetti was allowed to stick together. The primary flavorer enhancer was salt. The biggest disappointment was to discover this was fast food without the bun. It was all to... More

If this is what Red Lobster is suppose to be like I won't be going back. Not even offered a drink. Staff only seemed to care about themselves. Was the manager seriously smoking out front? Salad was terrible. The salmon, tilapia, and shrimp where much less than average. What a total disappointment, not to mention absolutely disgusting.

I visited this restaurant for lunch on a recent business trip. The service was excellent even though I was one of the first customers through the door. The food was hot, delivered in a timely manner, and was very tasty. While the evening menu is I believe over pirced the lunch menu is a great value. I will go again.

Unlike the Red Lobster in Union. This one is great, the wife and I stopped for an early dinner and we were seated quickly and our sever came right over and took our drink order. We ordered our dinner and or soup and salads we out quickly. Our table was cleaned of dishes shortly after finishing. Our dinners were severed... More
