Late Saturday lunch during crab fest. The biscuits are always delicious at Red Lobster! Caesar salad was fresh with plenty of Parmesan cheese and croutons. The specialty crab fest drink riveted us to Destin, Florida. What a fun surprise! Service was excellent, very attentive, and...More

After the wait to be seated, took like another 45 minutes for our food. I ordered a mojito which was WEAK and the grilled cajan chicken with Alfredo n linguini. It wasn't appetizing and it was very oily and salty and so was my asparagus.....More

Typical Red Lobster food. Nice selection of choices. Shrimp, lobster, fish, crab legs. All was delivered hot and steaming. Salad was cold and fresh. Stuffed mushrooms were very tasty. Fresh buns to start were good.

Our quest for a true lobster meal in the DC vicinty was finally fulfilled at Red Lobster. True, we scouted Baltimore and Philadelphia - but didn't get to a satisfying outcome there. You are seated promptly, a friendly server appears quickly, gets you your drinks...More
