We visited Red Lobster for my Mom's 75th birthday. She ordered the Parmesan Grilled Tilapia, it was a huge piece, and I had the Fried Flounder. We had an excellent server who brought us extra cheddar garlic biscuits and kept our drinks refilled. Our salads...More

While meandering by car in the upper Midwest last month we found ourselves in a place we'd never heard of before: Michigan City. Tiring of the standard fast food and/or low budget offerings we asked our GPS to tell us the names of the restaurants...More

I don't know if they were short handed, but when you walk in after a 30 minute wait outside & you walk past 5 empty tables, it's a little annoying. Service was decent and the food was hot & delicious. Margarita was frothy and weak,...More
