The food is always good here, and they always have a great staff. I eat here once a month and always have great service and food. The restrooms are also nice and clean. parking is also easy here.

Service was good, but the food was not up to the Red Lobster standards that I have experienced in other Red Lobster restaurants The endless shrimp was overcooked, then undercooked, then burnt

This is our 2nd visit within 6 months when we have stopped while traveling at this location. Both times we were unable to get what we had ordered or wanted to order. The first time was the out of stock salmon and the 2nd time was no baked potatoes that were ready to serve. The manager and waitress on this... More

When you can get all the shrimp you can eat plus a baked potato, biscuits, and a salad for 17.99, how can you beat that! Especially from Red Lobster! Loved the peach tea and the shrimp scampi! The peppercorn shrimp was excellent as well. The service was great as well!

As far as Red Lobsters go, this is a good one. The restaurant was clean and our server was attentive. It was a hot day so we were putting away the iced tea and our server kept our glasses full. Food didn't take long and was delicious. I recommend and would return.

Stopped in had the crab fest dinner. Bardie crab was amazing. The Caesar salad is always a must have with the cheddar biscuits. My wife had the tilapia fish and it was very good. Service was very good.

I know. Red Lobster for a steak!?! It's true! The Surf and Turf meal has a New York Strip steak that is amazing! Victor, the chef, is the best chef we have encountered in our many visits to local restaurants in Bloomington. All the food is awesome and the staff is wonderful! Friendly, helpful, and they work very hard to... More

We had an early dinner after meetings one day last week and we had a great meal. I get my usual: Fresh catch Full size so that I can take leftovers home and enjoy another meal from Red Lobster. I get the Salmon, Squash/Zucchini side and lobster mashed potatoes. For the salad, I pay extra for the Tomato Basil Caprese... More

After being led to our table and noticing that the seats were filthy with food I asked the host if we could get something to clean them. She grabbed a handful of napkins and swiped across both seats smearing food and walked away. I actually had to go get more napkins to clean the seats to sit, and then we... More
