Took my best friend to Red Lobster for her birthday as we decided to stay local and it's a Friday during Lent. Sat at the bar as it was a 45 minute wait for a table. I'm so glad we did. The bartender, Keegan, was one of the best wait staff ever. He was very attentive, upbeat, and met our... More

we had a great family dinner and enjoyed fine service. The weight was a little long but was well worth it.

As one of the few seafood restaurants in the area I would highly recommend red lobster. Always packed with customers and with good read. Food is always hot and fresh.

This is one of the worst red lobsters I have been to. First off, we order and get our salads and I go to open my silver wear and they still have food on them. Second off, this is my second visit to this red lobster in the last two weeks and I have had to order something else because... More

I have never been to a Red Lobster and had a bad meal. I find the Red Lobster chain to be a "no surprises" type of place. Shrimp is always great. I had salmon which was good but not great. O'Charley's next door has a cedar planked salmon which is better. The salad and bisquits are always good. I will... More

Always a pleasure to eat here. Staff is always so nice! Delicious food always! I got steak with green beans and garlic mashed potatoes. Steak was just right!

We frequent the Red Lobster in Marion and we have never been disappointed with a meal. Friday and Saturday evenings get busy, so prepare for a wait or arrive early. On my most recent trip, I had the three course seafood feast (lobster alfredo, parmesan shrimp, and bourbon glazed shrimp) which was delicious. Service is always good and they usually... More

Great food. Interesting drinks. Don't go Friday at 7PM or you will wait an hour and forty five minutes a half to get a table. We also found out you can call ahead and get a reservation.

I have been to other Red Lobsters and this one is the best. The food is consistently good. I love all the broiled lobster tails, scallops and shrimps! The salted skin baked potato is another favorite. The staff is very attentive and always make me feel that I am special. This is why I gave Marion Red Lobster an excellent... More
