Red Lobster - Salem
The primary seating / call ahead is useless. Why offer such?
The cheddar bay biscuits are outstanding. The server was pleasant, prompt, and attentive.
My wife’s filet mignon (ordered medium rare) was medium well beyond well but the l lobster (surf & turf) was just about right.
My meal...mmm did I mention the wonderful biscuits? Seafood combo, salmon was over cooked, prawns (shrimp) on a stick were ok, and lobster was warm-borderline raw.
Ok, I know it’s Salem, but seriously I’d rather drive to Seattle’s Shuckers or Ivar’s or Pike Place
Bottom line, order a dozen biscuits take out, go to Fitt’s fish and DIY. Better meal 1/2 the cost. But do get the cheddar bay biscuits, they’re crazy good.
The food was really good. We haven’t been there in years, but we were pleasantly surprised. I did have some brown lettuce in my salad, but that was my only real complaint. However the service was slow and our server wasn’t very attentive. Everything seemed to be moving in slow motion and the kids orders didn’t come out together. So one kid had food the other didn’t for at least 5 minutes...so when you’re hungry and have small kids 5 minutes is a big deal.
