Casual crustacean-inspired chain serves up diet-defying seafood dishes in a family-friendly environment. – In Short
Live lobsters wriggle in a tank inside this seafood emporium, where nautical-patterned booths and colorful, fish-shaped tables in the bar area add subdued touches of whimsy to the room's classy dark wood accents. The menu can be downright decadent, with starters of artichoke lobster dip, seafood fondue, and crab-stuffed mushrooms. Entrees feature lighter, grilled fare like mahi-mahi and North Atlantic sea scallops, along with signature lobster dishes, snow crab legs, and jumbo fried shrimp platters.
fried food if you like it – Plantatioin- Red Lobster
Went for lunch on a weekday. The ambience is ok, there's plenty of window seats and booths. The greetier at the door was friendly and helpful.
So we sat down and looked at the menu. They had a regular menu and the "as shown on tv" menu. I am not a big fan of fried food so I skipped those items, although I noticed that other patrons seemed to enjoy the fried items. I ordered the Mahi Mahi, broiled with sweet and spicy sauce. My mom and aunt ordered the Salmon in a bag.
So here is where things tend to break down, and I'm not sure it's fair to blame Red Lobster if one of its waitresses is having a bad day. She just couldn't get our order straight and came back for clarification, like "what was it that you ordered?" It was some time later, and it means she still hadn't entered our order in the computer. All of our orders came back wrong. There was no glaze on my Mahi Mahi. Mashed Potatoes instead of baked, regular salad instead of ceasar salad. After repeated requests, no butter came, no straws for the drinks, an order for carbonated water never came. So many things, I decided we'd have to start over to get it right so I kept quiet. But then the salmon in a bag came.... undercooked, still raw and cold on the inside of the fish, vegetables raw and uncooked. The best part of the meal was the desert consisting of "chocolate Wave." So, I would say, the food and service has potential. Maybe on a different day you'll fare better. Be vigilant.
Big Improvements – This restaurant has greatly improved in recent months. The food was always really good. They are finally getting it together with better service. They have remodeled, too. You should give them another try if you were unhappy with their service before.
