The food has gone downhill for quite a while. Some past visits: Flounder for lunch. Tasted frozen like something from the supermarket. Dinner..fish combo: fish tasteless, cheddar rolls stale, shrimp Alfredo tasted like those frozen $1.00 dinners.AND overpriced!!! Never, ever will eat there again.

My husband and I and another couple arrived at 5:30 and were seated promptly. We all ordered Endless Shrimp. The first order that came out was right. After that all of our orders were mixed up, either with something we did not order or double something. In the middle of all this a lady threw up all over the floor... More

I go to this restaurant often with my daughter and granddaughter. We have always enjoyed it and so we keep going back. The food is good, but I am mostly impressed by the friendly and helpful staff.

It's been awhile since we've been to Red Lobster, so we thought we'd give it another try. We probably should have waited a little longer. Our salads were mediocre. The biscuits were good, as always. My wife and I both had the Endless Shrimp. The Shrimp Alfredo was good. The Shrimp Scampi was okay. The Coconut Shrimp was disappointing. It... More

Honestly, all Red Lobsters are the same to me. Yummy seafood. Predictable menu and quality. You wait for your table (pet peeve) then enjoy your meal.

Red Lobster has always been a family favorite. From the crispy cheese buns to the delicious entrees there is something for everyone! The service at this Red Lobster was quite fast considering we had to wait to get seated cause it was that full. The staff was very nice and our waiter answered all of our menu questions. Will definitely... More

We've never had the best of luck with red lobster it seems. We come to Lancaster on vacation and the hubby had a craving so we took a chance. I wish we could take this red lobster home! This gang would show them how it's done. We had an awesome waitress! The food was hot and tasty. In the past... More

My friends and I frequent this establishment because we love seafood and the Bahama mamas are prepared the best there. We are always treated well and therefore we always go back. But it has become a once in a while treat to get away from every day life.
