I know it's a Red Lobster, but my meal (Dueling Lobsters) was very, very good. Surprisingly good and very tasty. My cheerful server checked on me frequently, but not too frequently. The meal came out promptly. Prices were reasonable. I'll be back.

This Red Lobster is like most. The expected menu food, wait is typical, service is good. There are some rooms that are a little too tight for me that I prefer not to sit in.

They actually have great food. They tell you what’s farmed and fresh. Fresh vegetables and a very good salad. The coffee was excellent. I was very impressed.

We went in for Lunch a couple of days ago. Excellent choices on the menu with a good price range. Service was good, fast and the food was fresh and good portions. Not to mention the biscuits all washed down with a Sam Adams.

It’s Red Lobster... it’s just like the one back home except the layout and decor aren’t as nice. Food was good and prepared well... waitress was very good and the host was extremely friendly. If you’re in the Red Lobster mood you won’t be disappointed.

Had dinner with my wife and we started with mussels. Flavor ok but texture indicated over cooked. In shrimp trio two styles were good but the fried shrimp were over cooked. Biscuits and salads and sides were good.

We stopped in to have a bite late evening. Our server, Cassidy, was exceptional and very patient and answered all of our questions about different menu items. Anything we ask for we received immediately. Very nice personality and accommodating which is a plus these days!...More
