Red Lobster - Brandon
We were seated immediately upon arrival at our wait list time. But it was downhill from there. It took over 45 minutes to receive the appetizers. It took an hour to receive our meals. The steak was dry and overdone. The shrimp scampi was cold and was not prepared properly and the linguini shrimp was cold. And I’m pretty sure my drink had no alcohol in it. The manager said they were short staffed that night. If so, they should not have allowed so many patrons in at the same time.
A busy Friday evening but were seated right away with our 'reservation'. Asked to be moved to a better table (from the back to a window) and were quickly accommodated. Our server was friendly and efficient and checked on a couple questions for us.
The steamy, creamy langoustine asparagus cheese dip was delicious. The burger was big and yummy served with crisp on the outside creamy on the inside French fries. Tried the new Asian-influenced Ka Pao fried lobster with noodles which was spicy and flavorful with a generous lobster portion. Everything arrived hot. And of course those famous cheese biscuits. A dependably delicious meal.
First let me just say that service was exceptional and we (party of five) seated promptly on a Sunday. The menu we were given had specials we couldn’t order from cause it was new and started the next day. No cole slaw, lobster bisque too cheesy and gross, clam chowder mediocre at best, and scallops very small and tasteless very bland covered in too much butter. For the quality the value was not worth it. Would not return for the food. Our waiter was pleasant, outgoing, personable, and refilled drinks timely.
Great Service Morgan!!!
We were there before 5pm, everything was great. Food excellent,service was too notch.
Service was fast, friendly and attentive. Thank you Joe. Food was very good and freshly made as ordered. The entrees actually came out and looked exactly like the pictures in the menu, thank you kitchen staff. Meal was an overall delight as always expected of this location. It’s not as easy to have a night out without the kids because of the difficulties of finding a sitter. So we were thankful for a stress free and relaxing dinner. A returning customer of 30 years and will continue to be.
The food is good and was served at the right temperature. They were very busy and the waitress was wonderful but so overworked that she had a hard time coming back to check on us when we had no more drinks . The parking is ridiculous . There were no spots as we circled for a good 25 min.
The wait to be seated was about 45 min after we checked in.
The Brandon location needs a total overhaul. The carpet and ceilings was very dirty, food left on the floor and the place had a very distinctive smell. My wife and I was shocked how bad the the place looks. We will definitely not recommend this place to anyone!
Everything was perfect the server & food was fabulous
