Havn't been to a Red Lobster in maybe 4 years. The crab linguini in alfredo parmesan was my favorite, pieces of real crab. Had the same in the Albany NY restaurant, and was terrible. The linguini was stuck together and the CRAB was in a cluster in just pieces, evidently processed, didn't even taste like crab.

As usual in this chain, very predictable but good for the money. Lobster and shrimp alfredo is great.

I have been to this Red Lobster for many years and the baked potatoes are always perfect! And the salads are always clean. I had Parrot Bay coconut shrimp and was very satisfied. My friend had the Sailors platter and was also satisfied. My grandson had the chicken and French fry kids meal. Not good. The piece of chicken looked... More

I used to come to the red lobsters as a child so was really looking forward to this. I had the shrimps for starter which was really good - service was helpful and friendly. Then I had the signature steamed 1 1/4 Llb Maine Lobster. I chose to dissect it myself - only comment was I had to ask for... More

We love the service --always friendly and appropriate -- and you get the notion that the staff is really into doing a good job -- no one is ever phony or saccharin and we've been 6 or more times in the last few months. The food, well -- hard to believe at a chain where every dish should be cookie-cutter... More

Stopped in red lobster for lunch, We both ordered the garlic shrimp on a skewer with rice and a green veggie. Iced tea for our drink. The shrimp were small and the rice was very dry.The cheese rolls were warm and very good but I don't think I would order this again.

I was traveling in the area and stopped at Red Lobster for a seafood dinner. I guess I am spoiled by eating at the shore. The waitstaff was friendly. I appreciated drink refills. The food was just average.

Ok, we have all dined in a Red Lobster and know what to expect. Tonight the expected changed, sure the food was good, but the bar tender Janielle made the experience exceptional. She was pleasant and listened to my stories with interest. While doing so she did the work of several people. She was nice and very efficient, such a... More
