During this post Covid period, Service is a huge differentiator. Our server was simply outstanding.

We took our son and daughter in law to dinner and the food was amazing as usual! We had the salmon and shrimp Orleans, our son had the wagyu burger and our DIL had the fried fish w fries and mashed potatoes. First time she had ever been there and tried the biscuits which of course she said were amazing

The service was below par. Could’ve just been the server. Worst waitress in a long time.
First rack of crab legs was cold. They replaced quickly with hot ones. Otherwise food was good.

The place was pretty empty even though it was lunch time on a Sunday. Our drinks rarely were refilled. The staff socialized in the dining area loudly in groups as big as 8 of them. I ordered soup, shrimp, vegetables and a dessert (because it was a deal). I was only able to eat the shrimp. Everything else was not even kind of good.

When we arrived we were immediately seated. Our food came out in a timely manner and our waitress was attentive. We were very pleased with our dining experience.

Went there for our daughter’s 18th birthday. Food was great. The waiter was great. The family next to us was on a speaker phone that was awfully loud and no one said anything to them so it got to be a bit annoying after a while so we left.

Food was pretty good. Host seated a party of 5 without a reservation before our party with a reservation. Host never realized it til I asked him about it. Server spilled container of hot melted butter in my lap—covered new skirt and jacket. Server never apologized. Asked that dry cleaning bill be covered, and restaurant agreed to do that. Wasn’t looking nor asked for any additional concessions, but was offered nothing as you might expect when something even less minor happens from time to time. Accidents happen, but too many other Franklin restaurants to choose from.

Had a great young woman serving us. Food was hot. Portions of salmon were nice and big. Broccoli steamed just right.

Took over 15 minutes for a server to ask if we wanted a drink. Baked potato was cold.

Do you want freezer-burned seafood? Well, that's what you get now. It used to be nice and fresh at Red Lobster, but not any more. The shrimp cocktail was worse than the bargain-brand frozen shrimp at Kroger. The Maine lobster tail has been obviously frozen, and lobster does not freeze well. It has gotten consistently bad, on trips in November 2020 and March 2021. Prices are high, as if everything is high-end fresh seafood, making this an extremely poor value for the money. The only thing left that is worth having is the live lobster out of the tank, and the lobster tank in the lobby is still there. That is not enough. We are not planning a return anytime soon.

Staff was friendly and helpful. However the food is way over priced considering the quality. I’m not impressed at all. Probably won’t visit again.

We particularly like seafood-- shell fis! Always good choices and several sides to accompany the entree. No one can beat the cheddar Bay biscuits---- but we just cannot go as often as we like. The food is just TOO pricey.

Even with priority seating and arriving early, we still had to wait about 30 minutes. It didn't look like the priority seating added any advantage. Our server was great, but if it weren't for him, we would have had a terrible experience. Very slow and inefficient.
