It has been some time since we have been at this location. The service was the best. Three servers worked as a team to handle all the customers in our section, which was completely full. We both had the 3 choice shrimp combo plates. They are at a special price on Monday and Tuesday which was an unexpected surprise. All... More

Red lobster used to be really good. Then they raised prices and made up for it by giving smaller portions or portions without much seafood. Have to ask for rolls most of the time. If they are hot and soft, you are very lucky. This is the only way we like them, sometimes they are hard and dark.

Nearly every Sunday, except when our church has a potluck, a group of us go to Red Lobster for lunch following our morning service. Sometimes there areas few as four in our group, other times we have had as many as sixteen at the same table. We have a handful of servers that we request regularly (Cindy, Robin, Mindy), but...

The only plase in Santa Maria for "Fresh Fish". The Scallops and Salmon are the freshest fish in Santa Maria. The service is great. For a Corporate store it's great.

This was our second trip in two weeks to this Red Lobster. My wife loves lobster and you can't beat Lobsterfest for quality and price. Our waiter, JR was great. He took care of several tables and was even busing his own tables. Great service J.R. Sadly Lobsterfest is over, but will return as will we.

The seafood was excellent but the portion was small . It comes with an ok Salad and 2 sides but I ordered asparagus and they charge extra for certain sides. The bread was very good but the best was the wine. They have a large wine list .

My friend and I are retired and we decided to go because we both like shrimp. We wound up ordering the Tilapia because it was one of the least expensive items on the menu. I was okay but I would have preferred shrimp but just too expensive. Shrimp has really come down in price in the markets so I don't... More
