    It was disappointing. Our waiter brought me a martini in a low ball glass instead of a martini glass, didn’t bring us plates or utensils for the appetizer and then the wrong entree showed up and it took them a good 5 minutes to realize I don’t receive the correct order. After asking 2x we finally got a plate to put the empty crab legs on. Super bummed he has our last visit was amazing.

    I do recognize that I had gone to a seafood restaurant even though I have a shellfish allergy. But I do this all the time. I can even go to sushi restaurants and they will clean an area before they prepare my food to make sure that I am safe. At red lobster today, I ordered a salmon Caesar salad, and the manager came over, and practically begged me not to order any protein because he could not cook my salmon on the stove top. Apparently they can only make their salmon by putting it through a broiler?!? But I truly feel that the manager just didn’t want to accommodate my shellfish allergy because cleaning their kitchen for a customer may slow down production. He basically asked me why I came to a seafood restaurant, if I can’t eat shellfish?!? Again, I go to restaurants all the time and this is the first time that I’ve ever been asked to just eat a plain salad because they chose not accommodate by cleaning an area before preparing my food. So the moral of the story is, if you have a shellfish allergy and your Dad loves red lobster and you are trying to make him happy, make sure that your group does not dine here. Choose anyplace else but here.

    Usually with open table in the past we sat at our table within 10 minutes but with Red Lobster you have to check in then the wait begins. We waited nearly 45 minutes. We won't be going back ever!

    Party of 3 using priority seating 8:30 p.m. Saturday June 10, 2023. We arrived about 8:20 and were told there were 4 parties ahead of us (everyone that was there). The restaurant was pretty much empty. More empty tables than seated ones in every section. We were seated around 8:40. Drink orders were taken and came out quickly with biscuits. We ordered at this time, all three ordered endless shrimp. And we waited... and waited... and waited... and waited. It seems there was only one server and having a couple of tables in each section, she was all over the place. She came by a couple of times once asking my husband if he wanted another drink, his reply was that he was hungry and wanted food! She assured us that it'd be up very soon. Finally, at the 40 minute mark (9:30) my husband went up and asked for the check. The server came over and said "I thought you said you didn't want another drink!" I said, "We want the check, we are hungry and we want to go somewhere where we can get something to eat before everything closes". She walks away and comes back with our order, finally. She asks if we want it and my husband asks is it going to take this long for more shrimp?? We decided to stay. She took a second order then and that came right out. It was pretty clear that, that was all we could have (not that we wanted more). So much for "endless shrimp". The food was ok. In the server's defense, she did what she could to make it up to us and she was very sweet, she was the main reason we stayed. Another party got up and left when they were told they didn't have what they ordered. Honestly, I have no desire to go back to Red Lobster again after this. From the looks of the place (empty, short staffed, etc.), it's not doing well.

    We made a priority seat reservation fully understanding that it was not a guarantee for the time available. We were told that we would still have to wait more than an hour so we decided to leave. Got a text that my table was ready as we already drove away, 10 minutes later. We were already far away so didn't come back.

    We visit Red Lobster for a casual meal quite often. This time we were quickly seated in the bar area. The chairs were comfortable, but I wasn’t able to hang my purse on it. I refuse to lay it on the floor. So I had to set it on top of my feet while we ate. I had the bar harbor lobster bake. It was delicious as usual but was missing a lobster tail. I felt jipped. My husband had the shrimp fettuccine Alfredo and was was disappointed with it. He aid it tasted bland and the sauce was runny. He decide not to eat. My daughter had a shrimp Cesar salad which was satisfying and my son thoroughly enjoyed the lobster fettuccine. First time I’ve heard that there was “too much lobster” in a meal. It sure if that’s a good or bad thing. We were happy with the overall results of dinner, but there’s always room for improvement.

    My husband and I went for Easter dinner. Unfortunately they didn’t have any vinaigrette dressing for a side salad. The food was okay. I requested extra ice in my iced tea but I guess their tea may be hot while poured over ice because there were no cubes in my tea but it was somewhat cold. The waitress started off friendly but must have went on break. Luckily we were able to pay on the table kiosk and I was able to ask one of the staff for a to go box.

    We ordered the 3 from the Sea special. You can order a soup or salad, a starter and an entree all for $15.99! The loaded baked potato was made perfectly. The blackened salmon was so delicious. The service was excellent from the hostess to our server Jasmine. We had a great visit on a Sunday afternoon.

    The food was cold and the garlic shrimp skewers were not fully cooked. We had to send both our meals back to have them fully cooked. The garlic shrimp had no garlic flavor or any other flavor. The garlic shrimp skewers were served on a bed of rice even though I ordered a baked potato. The baked potato was lukewarm and had to be sent back too. We had to ask for our salads and they were finally delivered several minutes after the entrees. Overall a very unpleasant experience for a $50 meal. One bright spot was our server, Destiny, who was pleasant, understanding and sympathetic to our situation. It's going to be a LONG time before we go back, if we go back.

    Service was extremely slow. Had to ask for refills. Waitress took our drink & appetizer order, then handed us off to another Waiter, but didn’t tell him about our appetizer order. Waiter forgot to but in some of our order, Lobster tail, the rest of the food was COLD by the time I received my Lobster. Probably won’t go to this location again. Second time we did not have a good experience at this location.
