Eaten there maybe 5 times in the last 6 months or so. Food has always been very good, atmosphere usually very pleasant and for the most part the service has been exceptional. On the occasion when it wasn't (and it was not a new server based on a previous visit) she simply seemed at a loss (not up on the... More

Not many people know this about Red Lobster but they will not serve any fish that is over fished so you know you are always getting the best fish and not destroying the environment. the waitress was so nice, let us share a dinner and thought ahead to bring additional plates. great wine too. LOVE it.

My husband and I ate at Red Lobster and expected the normal night out. We lucked out and got CJ as a waiter. He was an excellent waiter. I told him I was on a diet and he offer me some menu choices. He anticipated our needs and was a refreshing change. Thank you for the excellent meal and service.... More

That was the first time I was ever in a restaurant and the hostess never looked or spoke to us. The other young woman next to her, picked up two menus and started to walk away so we followed her. She also never looked or spoke to us. Our waitress was extremely friendly.

Whenever we go to State College, we go with my mom-in-law to the Red Lobster there. The food is consistently good. This is one of the few times I did not get coconut shrimp but the wood-fired grilled shrimp was just as good! On this past visit on August 6, 2015 we had exceptional service as well. I don't know...

The restaurant has a beautiful interior and exterior. Staff is polite. We like the seafood in red lobster. We have tried a variety of different dishes and they were all tasty. The special menu for combos change seasonal and they all worth trying.
