Over priced. Dark and dreary. Our waiter was wonderful and couldnt do enough to make us happy. Stuffed sea food lobster was disappointing but enjoyed the shrimp lobster tail

The food is just ok to me. The shrimp had more batter than shrimp. The steak was just ok. The chicken salad was good thou, with plenty of chicken strips inside

People were very very kind! Service with a smile! Food was pretty sad. I got the garlic shrimp skewers with rice and asparagus. Broccoli was served to me. Shrimp was limp and rice was about 1/4 cup worth. Very little food for $ 16.99. Husband ordered chicken ceasar salad that was dry and unappealing. Only ate 1/2. Soooo we left... More

My last experience with a Red Lobster was rather lack luster. Granted it was in another city. This location was fantastic! The hostess was so nice, so engaging and seemed genuinely interested. Our waiter was nice and helpful. The food was really good. I was very pleased and surprised.

For starters , the interior reminds me of a boat house. A new....clean....interior decorated boathouse. We dined on a Tuesday evening during the dinner shift and it was not busy; service was prompt- and the garlic-butter biscuits were amazing . I enjoyed the New Orleans Salmon and Shrimp/Half Order (and with the included sides, it was plenty of food ).... More

We stopped for lunch/dinner one afternoon and it was the best meal I had all week! Everything was so fresh, service was excellent and friendly staff. I would return.

This is a typical Red Lobster, same food and decor that you would find in any Red Lobster across America. Our waiter Sam made it an exceptional visit due to his outstanding service he provided.

I did some bonding with my granddaughter during a night out to dinner. He chose was Red Lobster. Large selection of sea food and good quality. Good service.

A variety of sea food including lobster, crab, shrimp served with delicious sauced. Drinks are unlimited, so sip on your coke till you pee :) A very nice ambient, though a little chilly. I wonder if they adjust the A/C so low so people just eat and go?

Good place if you crave well prepared fish dishes. Good service, comfortable seating, good accommodations. Great for solo or group dinning.
