It is odd how this chain varies from one town to another. This one is definitely on their game. good service, helpful choices and the meal was great. A family of six sat nearby and was given great service and attention as well.

Red Lob was one of our places to visit on a regular basis. Since we have investigated on the different sources where seafood comes from we have not visited this place. Our experience with the Red was usually good. At times they have been a bit heavy with the sauces & fried fare. But overall it is decent.

We waited over an hour for a table and then when we are taken to our table we see that many tables are available; close to half I would say. The hostesses obviously had no clue on coordinating seating; the results are long waits, and servers not making as much in tips as they could. There were people all over... More

I have reviewed the Red Lobster location in Joliet before. They are the best seafood place close to us and that has not changed. What changed today was waiting for 10 minutes after we were seated before anyone came over and similar waits once we had ordered and again after I was presented the check before the waitress came by...

We came here for lunch and was greeted by a very nice host who sat us right away. He asked if we had any time constraints, which I thought was very nice to respect our time. The waitress came over right away and got our drinks. She answered our questions regarding some menu choices. There is quite a variety of... More

We had the salmon and trout on the wood fired grill. Nehru were both made perfect. The biscuits were hot and fresh. Our waitress kept up on our refills and taking the dirty dishes away.
