They have great food, you get your money's worth. If you are a seafood lover then this is the place for you, they also make a good steak!

My family decided to take my mother-in-law here for her birthday because she loves lobster and other various seafood. Our group was 6 adults and 2 children. For a place like Red Lobster and the prices of everything on the menu, I would have expected a lot better service than was provided. We had one waitress, on a day that... More

We came in to the restaurant because we lost power at home. We had just turned the oven on to start dinner. We called the power company and then decided to go find dinner as we were both hungry. Quickly decided on this place as we had not been for a few weeks. Abbi was our server and she was... More

I met friends here for lunch and I did not expect such generous portions! I had the Admiral's Feast which was superb and I actually took home half of it for dinner! The service was excellent and we enjoyed our 4-hour visit and the friendly ambience of the restaurant. They were more than happy to have us and we will... More

The waitress was very nice the hostess was lacking and she want to tell you who your waitress was and that she walked away said it's off lease you couldn't understand her. The food was flavorful and prompt service to however as you can see from the photo how clean does their dishwasher get the dishes?

Went with Mom & Brother for an early supper around 4:45pm. While we were early we were asked to wait about 20 minutes until more staff came in for their shift. Our server Shayla was extremely friendly and efficient, juggling multiple tables at the same time. It was unlimited shrimp week at Red Lobster and I recommend getting the spicy... More

Red Lobster is a classic. The location in Salem Oregon is no exception. The good food you expect, with impeccable service. My wife and I visited on a very busy Friday. The staff had us seated quickly. We ordered as soon as we made our dinner choices. The courses came as soon as we finished the previous. Felt a little... More

We went to the Red Lobster here in Salem on Sunday evening. We thought we would go real early (4:30 PM) and beat the Dinner rush. We were wrong, when we pulled up there were people waiting outside. So instead of waiting 20 - 30 minutes we decided to eat at the bar. Our server/bartender's name was Tara. What a... More

This place never disappoints. Sometimes there is a 10-15min wait to be seated when the place is nearly empty. Once at the table, service is good and your drinks are refilled quickly and you can always get more of the yummy biscuits. Clam chowder is great - especially when you crumble the biscuits in it. YUM!

We will return here when we are in the area. Great waitress named Jasmine V cared for us. As grandparents we showed her our grand babies pictures and she shared her daughters pictures with us. Very personable young lady, ask for her. We had a gift card to use so here we were. I am not a fish lover but... More
