  • Red Lobster: Is it Worthy of the Praise it Often Receives?

    Apr 21, 2006 by Bryan_Carey is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to find; Good seafood menu selection; Large interior; Great service
    Cons: Inconsistent; Pricey

    Summary: Where do people go out for lunch or dinner when they have a craving for seafood? For those who live near the ocean in an area with a large fishing industry, there are often many specialty restaurants that cater to the needs of those who love seafood. For ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Hmmm?
    Cons: Wait was ridiculous.
    Food terrible.
    Service - so-so.

    Summary: Okay, a 45 minute wait at lunch time in an empty restaurant? Not enough staff, I assume. That was just the beginning of my Red Lobster nightmare in Madison Heights. I was soooo hungry and couldn't wait to have fish and chips. When the food came, it was ... read more

  • Corporate policy RIP

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The food is predictable if not epicurean, most staff are polite and helpfull.
    Cons: The quality of the "fresh fish" is generally below what I would cook for myself.

    Summary: I recently went out for a late dinner..approx. 9:30 pm, and really wanted some seafood...fresh fish if possible. So I decided to use the Red Lobster in Bartonsville Pa. as that was likely the only place I would find seafood at that hour.  I ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Readily available
    Cons: Quality is terrible, and getting worse.

    Summary: As a former Floridian, I was used to getting the freshest seafood caught only hours earlier at numerous restaurants on any given night.  After leaving home, I found myself in the middle of the country, or states nowhere near an ocean and nowhere ... read more

    Pros:
    Cons:

    Summary: Restaurants tend to fall into one of three categories.  You have fast food, casual sit-down and fine dining.  (Actually, I call them “cheap”, “midrange” and “more than I can reasonably afford”, but the first ... read more

  • Red Lobster; great 75% of the time.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tastes good, service is good, menu offers variety.
    Cons: They have "off" days with their food (and sometimes service).

    Summary: From my title, you can pretty much figure out that Red Lobster is a great place to eat, most of the time. It seems like sometimes I visit, or even depending on WHICH Red Lobster restaurant I visit, I get very different-tasting food. I can only ... read more

    Cons: All of the above.
    Everything about that was place is a Con

    Summary: On 2/20/2010, I took my husband to Red Lobster on Howe Ave. in Sacramento, Ca. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait. An hour later we were seated. No waiter or waitress came by our table for 15 minutes until we said something. We waved someone to ... read more

    Pros: Good food!
    Cons: None

    Summary: I'm a huge seafood fan. I love to have a great seafood meal - but don't always like to pay the big bucks at high-end seafood restaurants. And that is why I love Red Lobster. This is one of the only places where I can get good seafood that is well ... read more

    Pros: At this branch: NONE.
    Cons: Cold Contaminated Food Served On Dirty Dishes.

    Summary: Readers digest: Stay away, better food and service will be found at Waffle House or Burger King. 10 of us went there at the request of the Great-Grandmother In Law. We ended up being seated at two separate tables, not a big deal and this kept the ... read more

    Pros: reasonable prices for fresh fish
    Cons: limited variety, noisy
