This was the first time either my wife or I had ever been to a Red Lobster. I put that first bite of steak in my mouth and BAM! One of the finest steaks I have ever eaten! The seafood was first rate. The biscuits are fabulous! I believe our servers name was Al. What a great job he did!... More

Really good service! The lobster stuffed mushrooms were great. Very hot, almost too hot. The shrimp fest my hubby had was: Scampi...good BBQ shrimp...good Peppercorn...simply fried with a dusting of Parmesan. My lobster bisque was bland and too thick. All of our cutlery was smudged and dirty. There was actually a chunk of dried food on my wine glass.

This was a typical experience at Red Lobster. We enjoyed it. Nice waitress. Split a meal and they were good about helping with that. Food was delicious. I'd eat here again.

Food was really good. An inanimate waiter would have been better than the worthless human who "served us". We waited 23 minutes to even be asked for drinks and another 13 to even get them. He only came back to bring more water once in the entire 97 minutes that we were there. My genuine opinion is that we could've... More

We have a long-standing tradition to celebrate Birthdays, Anniversaries, Promotions and other special events at a Red Lobster. Since this one is close to our home - guess what - they have had a great share of our celebrations. We love the specials that they offer - some are for reduced prices, others for special flavors. Never had a disappointing... More

Service was great....we were spoiled on a Friday night no less. King Crab a little overdone so I couldn't crack it... Snow crab came out perfect. The crab linguine was not to my liking... too salty. Drinks were awesome... id give them another chance !

The food was prepared perfectly and we ordered Salmon and asparagus, calamari, shrimp pasta, and a shrimp trio.. Everything was perfect. The atmosphere, the host, the staff was very helpful.. It was clean and definitely in an excellent location! We... More

While Red Lobster is a large chain some locations are better than others. Well The one here in Tacoma is tops. Very friendly staff, clean facilities, well prepared dishes. Today we were served by "Jina", by far one of the best waitresses we have aver had anywhere! She just couldn't do enough for us. Very impressed, I even spoke to... More
