This is the first time we have lunch at the location but just don't understand why we have to wait 15+ minutes. We saw tables sitting idle for the same amount of time... As this is a family restaurant, the place can be noisy (and messy) so feel free to ask for another table if such situation arises. A booth... More

But the food was tasteless and uninspired and really quite sad. SAD I tell you. The garlic shrimp lacked any hint of garlic, the linguini was without flavor, even when heavily salted and peppered. Go someplace else.

We traveled as a couple across the border from BC Canada, for an overnight getaway and we chose Red Lobster as our dinner destination because my fiancé had never been before. I was excited for him to try the biscuits and they were just as delicious as I remembered them being. That is where the deliciousness came to an end.... More

We haven't been here in a few years, but Lobsterfest was all we needed to know. We shared a 3 lb Maine Lobster (claw meat is a must) and a 12 oz Steak. Our server, Nicole, was outstanding. She was patient and answered all of our questions, and made some wonderful suggestions. FYI, anyone looking for someone to do voice... More

The food is always awesome here and the servers are very friendly. Great location located close to the freeway and lodging. If your going for dinner I recommend getting there around 5pm or shortly before. I normally arrive around 6on or later and 9/10 times you will be looking at anywhere from a 15 min to 1 hour wait, any... More

Finally got to go to Red Lobster in Lynnwood, WA. Drove down from Vancouver, Canada just for lunch! Really great food, and service. Lobster surprisingly good, coconut shrimp and pineapple dip amazing and share a lobster pizza for a starter for 4 people. Very full menu. Scott, our server, was just great. The biscuits are to die for and we... More

Staff were friendly and efficient; building was clean with lots of room between tables so we didn't feel crowded nor hear the conversations of other diners; the food was tasty. The server placed the wrong meals in front of us causing confusion. I've had better tasting lobster served at home. The salmon on my plate was tasteless. It is hard... More

Went there on a Monday night. We both had the shrimp special. comes with two sides. The staff was very nice and helpful. There were four of us and the food came in a timely manner and it was hot. Which I always say is a plus. The other two had lobster and steak. If you want a good serving... More

Often go to a Red Lobster just for the lobster on my birthday, decided to make a change this time and had a delicious Four course "special" that was excellent. It was about $18.00 and a good value.

Very nice meal with family. My lobster was unfortunately underdone, but the server noticed before I dug in, and made sure it was sent back quickly. I have never had someone "de-shell" a lobster for me before, but I loved it. They gave me a free dessert as an apology for the wait for my meal, without prompting. Prices are... More
