Wife was craving some Red Lobster so we did take out. The shrimp was good and tasty. The mashed and the rice were very good as well as the biscuits!

Even as someone who has eaten seafood from Boston to Maryland, some of these prices will make your jaw drop. The lunch specials are not bad, though, nor are the appetizers. I ordered the stuffed flounder. Small portion size, but for the luncheon price, not too bad. Fish was cooked perfectly, stuffing was good too. For an appetizer, we had... More

Arrived at 8:15 and were seated very quickly. Enjoyed a bowl of their delicious lobster bisque (which could of been hotter) and then shared a lobster/langostino thin crusted pizza, which was more than enough for two. Our server was a very personable young man but we did have to ask him three times to bring us our water. All in... More

We have eaten numerous dinners at Red Lobster. The most recent was last week. We keep coming back because the service is good, usually get a table pretty fast, menu has a lot to offer and a take home bag usually follows us home. Always get some sort of shrimp dish and it never disappoints. Always get the caesar salad... More

Another Christmas dinner with coworkers. This year we went to Red Lobsters. It was quiet since we went early around 3 pm. We were greeted promptly by the hostess and seated in a nice comfortable booth for our group of 4.

The service and food here was both very good. Steak melts in your mouth. Chicken Tacos delicious. Yummy biscuits. Prices high on some things for this type of restaurant.
