We used the OpenTable app to avoid the usual line ups but there was no line up! Such is date night in time of plague. Wait staff was helpful, suggested alternate wine s and plied us with addition biscuits. Food was lovely. We ate too much and went home feeling slightly uncomfortable.

You took the key-lime pie off of the menu. We were disappointed. It is a light finish to a heavy meal and I could not finish the brownie (even with help from my wife).

For the price the Lobster tail was the size of a prawn. Comparing it to the picture in the menu is not even close to what is represented.

Menu well worth the $45.00
What was served value of $25.00

The food service was excellent. Food portioning ok. A little improvement in food presentation is desirable. Option not to include cheese in sauces or gravies should be explored for those who have allergies.

Service was excellent. Friendly staff although I thought we were checked in with a few too many times than necessary?

I ordered my steak Well Done and it was med well. I would say value for food served poor. Find prices for food high but food sub standard. Was not served hot and lacked flavour and plating not attractive....it's like fine dining food prices w "greasy spoon" establishment food. Not my cup of tea. Prob will not go back. Would rather spend a $100 or more on better food eating experience. I remember enjoying Red Lobster more in the past along with it's more moderate prices . Doesn't seem the same anymore?

Thanks.

Food was delicious. Broccoli was not great though as a side. Very bland and rubbery texture. Our server was amazing.

Food was fantastic. This location is always good but this evening it was even better than usual. There was no difference in booking a table through OpenTable or just walking in. We were told 20 minutes when we checked in but were seated at 50 mins just like everyone else.

I do not like the fact that there are no reservations allowed. Your waiting list system is a joke.; You still have to wait once you have arrived 15-20 mins. One single dad with two little guys in tow had to wait 1 hour and 45 mins to be seated on a Saturday night.

When we handed the priority waitlist to the host stand, the host there, Ben or the woman helping him, Deb, were both not familiar with OpenTable or the priority waitlist and said we were not on there screen anywhere. Then another gentleman came forward looked like the MGR. and said he was familiar with Open Table but we should be on their list. We were not. He asked when I had booked it through opentable and I replied Monday for a Thursday. Nobody followed through and let Oshawa Red Lobster know; it seems like a reduntant exercise to book through opentable when it does not get relayed to the restaurant. However the gentleman was accommodating and we only waited about 5minutes. The waitress, Ashley was awesome and the food was equally good.

This was one of the better locations I've been too. Everything came out hot and fresh. Despite being busy it didn't feel like it. Service was fast and wasn't overly loud. Great spot.

We wanted lobster who would have thought that a restaurant with the word lobster in it would only have tiny lobsters so we ordered something else on the menu and will continue our search for lobster at least the biscuits where as good as we remembered them to be

The clam strips are so thin, small, and tasteless. Not worth having on the plate really. But I do like all the other items of the admirals’s feast and that’s why I order that plate. Server was great-courteous, attentive, friendly. Our table was ready right on time.

Ordered off the lunch menu: the create your own lunch, which lets you choose two items and one side: had the fire grilled shrimp skewers, the golden fried fish and one side (brocolli). Actually all quite good and a decent amount of food. Too bad there is an upcharge on the ceasar salad. It used to be one if the no charge sides.
Server was attentive and service was quick.

Our waitress was very busy but had a great attitude. She timed our food to come out at appropriate times. She was very nice and got to know us. She was a good waitress.

The only negative feedback was our steaks were not searing hot. Our food got cold quickly.

It was a pleasant evening.

My friends and I were seated promptly because of Open Table and we really appreciated that opportunity. Our experience was very good though I find meals here are becoming more costly so we may not be able to visit as often as we might like. I'm not sure it is necessary to charge extra for asparagus instead of broccoli. Green beans were not available either and why on earth would beans be more money than broccoli? It used to be that salad was included with the meal but now it is extra so I didn't order one.
The only other problem we had was the lack of parking. It is never sufficient because it is shared parking with the restaurant next door. I guess there is not much that can be done about that.

Great service by our server Adam. Only downfall was 3 of us had water to drink and my husband ordered a soda. He was offered a refill on his soda but not one of us got asked to have our water refilled. Other than that service was great.

We arrived on time and we were seated in 15 minutes. The waitress greeted us with a big welcoming smile. Our friend was a little late and the waitress brought us drinks, the glorious biscuits and an appetizer. We ordered the feast dishes and everything was perfect.

our evening started off with a waitress who was very indifferent and the cocktail was lemon juice with sugar syrup (that's what it tasted like! awful! we left feeling very down! no friendliness and no good experience! some of the tables hadn't been cleared for quite some time and the customers messed up the floor! the waitresses seemed to be very stressed and overworked! won't visit for a long, long time again!
