The wife and I needed dinner. Ok, let's go to Red Lobster!! She readily agreed. I mean, Red Lobster is usually pretty good. Well, they came through once again! The wait staff was extremely attentive. The food came out a little soon, I mean, normally, your entree doesn't come out with your appatizer. But that was ok. We had some... More

We've eaten at many Red Lobsters in our time but have never been able to sit by the water and enjoy the views as we did here in Fort Walton beach. Have to admit that it just makes a dinner date and meal feel and taste much better. Kudos!

Haven't any major complaints - the view is great and the server was pleasant. Food just wasn't up to par. Had Sailors Platter. The shrimp was good. The shrimp scampi was ok, but usually the sauce or butter is to die for, Not. The fish was good, but a very small piece I almost needed a magnifying glass. Very disappointed... More

This Red Lobster is outdated and the food is horrible. Not to mention it took 35 minutes for our food to come out and it wasn't even crowded. We couldn't even finish eating as the food had no seasoning or taste. My Parmesan crusted tilapia was so soggy that I had to give it back. The four of us were... More

We.did not enjoy anything that we had. Starting with jumbo shrimp cocktail, tasted like the shrimp was soaking in fresh water for at least a week, no flavor at except for the cocktail sauce. We then had two orders of lobster tails. Without lots of butter there was not flavor there either. The biscuits however the exception, they were pretty... More

We ate here the first night because is was close but Red Lobster keeps shrinking their portions. My husband says he does not want to come to red lobster unless they have all you can eat shrimp. The service was good.

Red Lobster can be pricey but the food is worth it. I started with a Chocolate Martini – my favourite cocktail – which was how I like it – strong and chocolatey. I decided to try the Fried Oysters – oysters in batter and deep friend, which were not what I expected. The texture and taste were not good to... More

Had a bad experience at another Red Lobster but tried this one anyway. Glad we did as the meal was excellent and Tom the waiter did an outstanding job. He recommended the coconut shrimp and is was delicious. This restaurant sits on the waterfront so the views are super, especially as the sun sets. Used the coupon from the Sunday... More
