When we arrived for our reservation, we were told that they don’t take reservations and we would have a 25 minute wait. This was actually the only bad thing that really occurred.
My husband trout was dry but the manager credited our bill without hesitation. The new item roasted Brussels sprouts was amazing!!!
I would definitely go back. The confusion by the hostess was unfortunate and she was also not very pleasant for a hostess.
Our sever was very nice!

Seating time was amazing! Our waitress was outstanding! She was very friendly and attentive! Didn’t try to rush us at all. I had the pick two for 20.99. The 7 oz sirloin was horrible! Hard to cut and hard to chew. Plus it cost, I think, 3.99 more. 2nd pick was the new lobster dish which was pieces of lobster out of the claws! It was very strong tasting and chewy! Plus it was 4.99 extra, I would never order either again!

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality here -of everything. My wife ordered a whole lobster while I ordered just clam chowder and a Caprese salad. The Caprese was spectacular; my wife took it from me and gave me her Cesaer salad, which had a very light dressing which I found wonderful. The clam chowder was ok, but I'm picky as I live near the ocean and know where to get the "good stuff".
Our server, Erica, asked if we'd like to crack the lobster ourselves or have her do it. Thankfully, we let her do it. Apparently, this guy took a lot of effort! Erica stood next to our table and chatted with us as she worked, placing chunks of the lobster meat on my wife's plate as soon as each section was cracked. It took 15 minutes, we ate as she worked, and had a very enjoyable dinner.
Our only complaint is that the restaurant wasn't quite ready for us at 5:15pm. Though we called ahead, we had to wait to be seated, for some unknown reason. (The OT site had warned us of this; but it doesn't make sense.) Even after being seated, our drink order was delayed and we had to ask. (Possibly one or two servers arrived late to work...) Once we finally had our drinks, everything ran smoothly.
Prices were quite reasonable, unless you want just lobster! But even then, for lobster, it was reasonable. And the house Chardonnay was quite good - only $5 if you order it before 6pm.
Highly recommended!

Red Lobster used to be a fancy seafood dining experience but it’s really gone down hill over the last 10 years. Same food getting more expensive in a more casual environment. I can get better tasting seafood in classier places.

Our server got both our orders wrong: didn't order what we requested. Management tried to make things right, but really didn't work for us.

Small portions for the value. The muffins were awesome. I'd go back to pick up a dozen.

Was disappointed with the dime size scallops and lobster was more like shrimp size and the mussels were dry! The Bar Harbor Lobster Bake is our favorite and this time it was less than pleasant. Hope this was just a bad night and not a trend!

Good food, quick service. A little peeved that they wouldn't serve my wife's salmon rare. I can understand not serving rare red meat, but salmon???
