Our birthday celebration at the Red Lobster was perfect. Our server, Mary, was wonderful, and she took great pictures of our group. Courtesy of the restaurant, a huge brownie sundae was brought out for the birthday girl who turned 95. All seafood specials we had were delicious! Thank you Red Lobster!

Our waiter seemed very off. When ordering he kept telling us that this or that would be an up charge. This is fine, it was just the tone. It was as if he was trying to discourage a choice. We don’t go here often but when we do we like to go all in. He DID NOT say anything about Lobsterfest. We had no idea until we overheard another server telling a nearby table. This was after we ordered our meal. That made me very angry. Of course it was too late to change our order.

Everything was outstanding and food and service was excellent! We hadn’t been there for almost four years and I don’t know if there has been a new management or not, but we were very pleased!! Thank you and see you soon.

This was truly and abysmal meal and reminded me why I no longer do Red Lobster. Lobster was clearly over cooked and the food simply ok. The best thing going for them are those garlic rolls . Simply divine . Won’t return ... don’t hold your breath
