We decided to drop in on Red Lobster as we haven't been to one in a number of years... Considering the time of day we went, they were quite busy... perhaps a good sign.

Walking distance from several hotels. Not stingy on the Cheddar Bay biscuits. There were only 2 of us and we were given 5 biscuits. When I asked for some water, the waitress knew we were fixing to leave and gave us both watercolor go.

We are never disappointed when we go to Red Lobster. Wait staff always wants to please and are cheerful. We love the cheese biscuits. But, all dishes are great. I nearly always eat the Shrimp (fried) or Popcorn Shrimp. My husband loves the lobster. They nearly always have a special of the month. It is not as noisy as most... More
