They brough out my crab half frozen and cold. It was sent back but by the time I got my food the rest of our party was done eating. I did not get to enjoy my food at all.

My husband and I had gifts certificates to use. We ordered a bottle of wine to share with our entrees. When server brought it out he asked if we would like the honors of opening up the bottle or should he. What? My husband quickly said he would do it. Thinking the server didn’t want to. It was even a screw top. But a server should always present the wine to person who ordered it, then open it for us at table, place cork next to guest and give person who ordered it a taste. This looks like a management issue and training issue. Otherwise our server was very friendly and brought everything out in a timely manner.

Had a reservation for noon. Restaurant was 80% empty. Food was average-good, with somewhat high prices. I had fish and chips. I think it was around $15. range. I have had better. My friend had salmon, around $15 with a $3 upcharge for sime side dish. Salmon was good, but small in size. Overall $43 with two sodas. No king crab available on menu. Overall too expensive for lunch. Why be open, when restaurant was basically empty with high prices. Seems to me that Golden Gate Capital should seek new consultants, and throw away the lunch menu, to be replaced with a new, healthy and lower priced menu ($9.95 range). I would live a real crab salad, not $24.95 one lbs
of snow crab for lunch.

The food quality has gone way down. The ceasar salad seemed like it had been created well in advance and sat in a refrigerator as the lettuce was soggy from the dressing. The potato came out unsliced with no butter or sour cream and the shrimp looked like it had just been thrown on the plate including the shrimp scampi. Will not be going back there anytime soon...it is sad how it has become.

Overall a good experience. My recollection of Red Lobster in the 90s vs now. Seems the chain has diminished to just that, a chain. Food quality is not what it used to be, but it is not a fault of the location.

Ordered walleye expecting it to be bone free - after all it is a seafood restaurant. Not what I got - pesky bones in the walleye; lots of them. Was told “that just happens”. Not really acceptable - gross actually but whatever. Didn’t eat it. Wine and biscuits were good. Husband enjoyed his shrimp tacos. In summary - overall disappointing.

The food was good, once I got it. The waitress took down the wrong meal for me. The others got their food and were done eating before I got mine. They rushed the food so fast, the lobster was still uncooked in the middle. The manager came over and removed my meal from the bill.

If you go, not expecting much you will be happy. For example, we ordered ice tea. The tea is unsweetened and our waitress never offered sweeteners, none were on the table. Had to ask for it. No straws offered, had to ask for them. The manager came over rather robotically and asked how things were at some point. The person that brought our food to the table was very unfriendly and seemed annoyed. The lobster mashed potatoes were fantastic. The Dragon Sprimp was good and flavorful. The Admiral Plate was terrible because all the sea food was fried in the same seasonless batter. So, everything on that plate tasted exactly the same. The deserts were good.

Even though we dined at Red Lobster on one of the busiest nights of the year, the wait was reasonable as we had signed up for call ahead seating, and the service was as prompt and professional as always.
