Red Lobster is good value for money. Staff are pleasant and know their jobs. My lobster tail was overdone but otherwise about what you would expect from a chain with a good reputation.

Priority Seating only. That wasn't honored as much as I would have hoped. Two groups who walked in after us with no prior call were seated before us.

Food and service were both excellent. It's still red lobster so the ambiance is not great but it is what it is.

We've been going to this Red Lobster since it opened many years ago. Food is usually good depending on what you get. My lobster tail was a good 12 ounces and cost $34 including sides, which is pretty good. The interior could use another update but it is what it is.

Red Lobster is still a great place for fresh seafood. Sure, it's a chain, but the food is always good and in this case very well prepared and with quite a variety of seafood to choose from. Wait staff was very attentive and our dinners were served quickly and properly prepared. A few pf the dinners are very creative such as Tilapia New Orleans style. Prices are very reasonable and it's good to have a seafood place within reach.

Visited Restaurant January 26th with a confirmed VIP Open Table reservation at 7:15 pm. Arrived and Manager himself said they were clearing a table. H clearly fibbed and 20 minutes later his staff said no guaranty of when a table would be ready and maybe an hour. If the restaurant was so mismanaged and chaotic, they should not have allowed the OpenTable app to be used and should have removed the time slots. A total misuse of OpenTable. The Manger on duty should be reprimanded for running such a terrible operation.

Another wonderful dinner at Red Lobster! Their food and service are always very dependable. We had salmon and cod from fresh fish menu and they both were excellent. Much better and less expensive than the fancy fish restaurants.
