Waited for 30-40 minutes despite having a reservation and plenty of open tables in the dining area. Took 30 minutes to get 4 drinks served after we sat down. Food was just ok.

It was very bad service, I expected more on a $100 tab. Three of our food items were incorrect when they came out which delayed receiving the food, desert wasn’t even offered. I was not impressed.

This Red Lobster is usually very good but this time the fried shrimp was over cooked and the fish was supposed to be fried but instead it was grilled.

We made a reservation through open table, were seated and the reservation was acknowledged, but when we presented our gift card from open table the manager came to our table and said he had never heard of Open Table. He honored the $10 off, but I felt like a crook who was trying to get away with something. Not a pleasant feeling. Besides the uncomfortable situation created by the manager, everything else was great.

Red lobster is my favorite for seafood. It can be somewhat pricey though. I have always felt it is worth the price. I eat here several times a year and would recommend it to everyone.

Place is too busy, even with reservation we waited for 45 minutes. Our server was very nice and biscuits were wonderful.

The steak was so tough I couldn't chew it so they brought out a new one that was supposed to be medium but was rare. The scallops didn't taste at all. The shrimp was just okay. Only good food was the biscuits. Our waitress was great and very friendly and attentive.
