Default Red Lobster

We went to the Red Lobster on Sun.--we normally avoid chain restaurants. Had a very pleasant surprise, We got a 3 lb & a 2lb lobster stuffed with crabmeat, cocktails for $100.00 less than we spent @ The Waterfront for basically the something 2 weeks ago. We ate @ the bar and the bar person was very polite & handled everything just right.

I also have eaten there several times and agree with you that the food is every bit as good as any other places in the Villages. AND reasonably priced.

My feeling is that we know this company is in financial problems, and I personally dislike any business being closed. My friends and I eat at Red Lobster for our luncheons and enjoy it every time. The food is good and servers are the very polite and informative. A little pricey? Yeah, but what isn't?
Let's keep this restaurant open by letting as many of our friends know that it could be a hidden gem.

If it was $100 less than the Waterfront I'm curious as to how much it was at the Waterfront?

Red Lobster was recently sold to new owners, so, at least at this point, I don't think they are having financial problems any longer.

Default Another positive review

Never been a Red Lobster fan BUT went there 2 days ago on a whim. Good food well prepared, good service. Will definitely go back. Got there about 1PM. No more than a dozen to 20 patrons. They deserve better if my experience was normal.
