Crab legs were no as good as usual. My friend enjoyed the salmon bowl and said it was very good. Service was excellent and our waitress was friendly and helpful.

Had to wait 40 minutes for a table even with a reservation which almost made me late for a ticketed event

Everything was rushed. They brought my soup before my appetizer. Salad was supposed to be with my entree and came before we had finished the appetizers.

I feel like you don’t get much food for what you pay.

Salad contents was lettuce and stale croutons with thinly shredded cheese. I couldn’t eat the shrimp( I believe was bad) and crab legs were over cooked or old.
Overall for a $60 meal it was horrible.
Service was great and restaurant was slow.

Apparently Red Lobster is not affiliated with Open Table in any way. That is what Red Lobster informed us

Food, service (Bill), and ambiance were great. However, in Lobby area a number of individuals were not wearing masks and hostesses were not instructing and people to do so.

Red Lobster does not honor Open Table reservations like other places. You are put on a call ahead seating and still may have to wait over an hour. As someone who uses open table frequently I think this is totally unacceptable. Had to speak to the manager to get seated after 20 minutes. According to his reservations I had called ahead 30 minutes prior when I had to show proof it was booked 2 days earlier. If wanting prompt table seating go somewhere else

Food was not on point and took forever. Server was very on top of what she could control. Reservations really did not help still had to wait as if we just walked in.

Have been to this specific Red Lobster on several occasions and every time the servers are always friendly and good at their job. The food comes out prompt and is cooked perfectly. Look forward to the next time my family and I can dine here again!

The food was less than satisfactory and the waitress could have cared less - fried food was floating in grease and the other food was very lack luster

The restaurant smells strongly of fish and seafood. It makes one wonder if the food is as fresh as it should be. The lobster/shrimp roll had no mayo mixed in with the seafood. We grew up on the coast of Maine so we probably have different expectations than folks living in central KY.

This should not be on open table. It is not a reservation! Once we arrived and checked in, it was 45 minutes until we were seated. AGAIN, this restaurant SHOULD NOT be on open table since it does not offer a true reservation.
