Red Lobster can be a little pricey for dinner, so if you want some delicious seafood at a reasonable price, visit during lunch hours. Along with the entree, you still get their delicious bread, a salad and a side. The portions are a little smaller,...More

Wait staff is always friendly and professional. Everything is always cooked to perfection. Lobster is firm and flavorful. Crab Legs are sweet and fleshy. Tender but firm Shrimp. Baked Potato Soup is awesome and the Cheddar Bay Biscuits are to die for!!!

I use to love Red Lobster. I even bragged on the place. The food was great and the amount of food was plentiful. Then the salid portion became smaller. The real fan tail shrimp was replaced by fake shrimp which is worse than breaded shrimp...More
