We had a coupon and a gift card to Red Lobster. I ordered the 4 course feast.. I had a cup of clam chowder, a salad, the garlic grilled shrimp and a triple chocolate brownie ala mode for dessert. I was so full I had to take some of my dinner home. It was a great value at 16.99. The... More

It is hard to believe that they specialize in seafood. I had mussels in wine and garlic which should be pretty easy to do, I found them to be ok at best. I didn't feel I was eating the freshest product. My husband had a shrimp dish, his was ok. The best thing at this restaurant we had was the... More

Ok, this is one of those guilty pleasures restaurants that you just have to go to every now and then and get your shrimp or crab fix. We go during the shrimp or crab fest events. You get a basket of cheese biscuits that are oh-so fattening but you just have to have one (or three). We like the combo... More

We eat here a couple times of year. Only Red Lobster location for a large radius so location can tend to be very packed with an extensive weight especially during peak dinner times 5-7pm. We went tonight on a Friday about 8:05 and were immediately seated. Food is usually very good. Ultimate feast is a favorite of mine. Love when... More

Great staff. Great service. Good location. Lobster and shrimp pretty soggy and the new menu (including the lobster and shrimp) was over priced. Not the greatest, but we're trying to lose weight and fish seemed like a good option. Not real happy with it.

Just about the only place in Roanoke that has consistently good seafood is Red Lobster. Outside of Roanoke is a different story; but we were here at the time. They have a nice salad and they always set a basket of bread on the table. They are fast with the "meet and greet" and a sever in not far behind.... More
