    Disgusting. We waited over 20 minutes for drinks. Our salads had a inch of water in it. Then the lobster had some hair ball on it.

    Tip to the restaurant. Have stock of carrot cake. Every time I do come, there's never a dessert one really wants.

    was told wait time would be an hour. waited an hour and a half and asked how long it would be. After the hosts talked about it they said it would be another hour. They seat black families first here.

    Took 5 minutes to be greeted by the bartender who was feet away from us the whole time.... Unacceptable

    Was quoted 50 minutes for 3 people, ended up asking 75 min had passed if we had been forgotten about.. Checked with hostess where we were on the list and there was still 10 tables ahead of us. Left.

    The lobster bisque is delicious.

  • Derek S.

    Sundays are a joke. A party of 5 waiting for an hour and a half is rediculous. Watching the turn around the the tables is sad. They need to light a fire cracker under these waiters and busboys asses.

  • Faby H.

    Don't waste your time here. Waiting and waiting is all you'll ever do.

    If you are an older white couple, all you need to do is complain to Brian, the manager, during a busy time to get seated. Total BS!!!

    Food is ok, Cheddar Biscuits are amazing, service is very poor. Forgot our appetizer order, and he rarely checked on our table to see if we needed anything.

    Justin Price · June 23, 2012

    Great rolls

    Jason Turner · April 2, 2012

    Come for the cheddar bay biscuits.

  • Laura N.

    Not every experience at red lobster is as horrible as everyone says it is. Good food, good service, you are bound to wait at any good restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night...patience is a virtue.

    Laura Neve · October 30, 2011
  • Shona

    Ask for Anthony. His service is amazing.

    Beware of the rude hostesses...mad like its our fault you at work

    Leave a tip! I've watched way too many people stiff the servers/ bartenders. I don't care what your philosophy is, they don't make minimum wage and depend on them...

  • Lanesha W.

    It is what it is when you come here just expect to wait its the only on the northside of mke...

    without even noticing our empty glasses or biscuit basket, and when asked for something-shocker-SLOW!!! 8% tip here you come.

    Anita Pollock · August 20, 2011
  • Anita P.

    Not the greatest experience, quite frankly it's one of the worst. Quoted 10-15 waited 20+, service was slow getting to the table, slow with salads and full of excuses, and walked past us several times

    Anita Pollock · August 20, 2011
  • Cory F.

    No raw oysters at this location. Bummer!

    Have a 15 min wait and there are a bunch of open tables and hostess is rude

    Great service. Very friendly staff... Surprising for a chain.

  • Robyn G.

    Service here was awful. Waited at the bar for 20 mins & still didnt get served. Bitchy waitress, awful iced tea. You get an F Red Lobster, go next door to flat top.

  • Matt W.

    Red Lobster is great if you're into nasty fried food. And average nasty fried food at that.
