Great food except they don't sell Halibut any longer. Servers at this location are exceptional. They go above and beyond to make sure customers are happy. Food is great. One of the few places in Oakridge worth the trip.

We were excited to see there was a Red Lobster in the area (we moved here last year) but we were HIGHLY disappointed. The restaurant was completely empty but yet extremely messy - tables were dirty and full of plates, cups, etc. The service was...More
