Whenever you show up with 10 people you know it will be a true test! The service was great and the food was the standard Red Lobster fare... A decent choice if you can handle the chain restaurant feel!

If it's shrimp or lobster that you crave, Red Lobster is the place for you! Of course there is much more to choose from like their soups, salads, pizza and more. And lets not forget those great biscuits!
