Came to Buffalo for a business trip and got not much information around the place I was going to stay. Went to Red Lobster by the chance and generally satisfied. Price was not so cheap but reasonable, staffs were kind except only one.

Red lobster restaurants have their days. If you visit on your lucky day, you'd have great food. On other occasions, may be not so much. Crab legs and lobster are good choices. Kids love their biscuits.

I love lobster but a friend does not. However, there is a4-Course Feast special for $16.99 that is very good for those who don't like seafood and a great deal. Service is friendly. It's one of my favorite chain restaurants.
