My wife and I had another great meal at Red Lobster. Food is mostly consistent from franchise to franchise.

The waitress was very good and the food was fine except for a couple of items. The soup was cold and we asked waitress to reheat. By the time we just finished soup our dinners came before we could finish salad. Shrimp was good however the corn on the Cobb was cold like it just came out of refrigerator. Apparently... More

Salmon was good too. The shrimp in 4 varieties and locally caught was the best. My lobster and crab had been under a heat lamp too long. The bread rolls are the best! We ate here 2 nights. Vegetabel sides are exceptional. So a hedged 5 stars

As Red Lobster is a chain, you can be certain that all Red Lobsters are created equal. Not a bad restaurant certainly much better than Gilligans. We go there often. Food is good and they will tailor any request that you may have.

Took forever to be seated and restaurant wasn't even that busy. Ordered steak medium rare, and it was too tough to cut. Found it was medium well.

Though I am a strict vegetarian, I went there along with my friends. The ambience was excellent. They had live lobsters in showcase. I had limited option for me. But whatever was served was tasty. The staff were extremely helpful in making sure that I get something that I can eat. Their Breads were great in taste.
