This is one of two Red Lobsters in Lexington. The food and service at this location is always good. The only negative thing I can say, and this is a pet peeve of mine, is that they often make the assumption that you want your children's food out first instead of with the adult meals.

This Red Lobster is incredibly slow. Our waiter, Taylor, was nice and accommodating but seemed overworked with all the tables he was waiting on. Our appetizers arrived separately and there was a long pause between our salads and main course. When the main course did arrive, my crab legs were cold. Also, I ordered broccoli and the whipped sweet potatoes with honey roasted almonds (which come in their individual dish). They arrived ON THE SAME PLATE, with the brocolli mixing with the sweet potatoes. Not only did it LOOK bad in presentation, I have a quirk that I don't want my food to touch. I sent it back and ask that the sweet potatoes be put in an individual dish, as advertised and as they'd come before. The "new" broccoli that was served was limp and old. The sweet potatoes? The SAME ones that had been on the broccoli plate, but covered with nuts and a bit of butter (with bits of broccoli throughout). I didn't finish them and didn't touch the broccoli. I give them two stars for the friendliness of the waiter Taylor.

I ordered dinner for three online and picked it up. The online ordering was easy and very through about options for each meal. It was almost as easy as ordering in person and a lot easier than ordering on the phone. I had the crab linguine with extra crab and it was fantastic. We had Wally's and the coconut shrimp and they were excellent as well. The staff was very pleasant, courteous, and took care of me very promptly.

The grand kids love going to the Red Lobster for their birthday meal. Nice atmosphere and attentive staff. I ordered the Dragon Shrimp which was excellent and spicy which is what I like. Shrimp seasoned just right on a bed of rice and steamed broccoli. The grand daughter loves the popcorn shrimp and huge baked potato. Love the raspberry lemonade. We were seated promptly and soon came the cheddar bay biscuits which came hot out of the oven. A great time and meal as usual for this Red Lobster.

I rarely get to use coupons I receive via email or the mailbox. We do not eat out much, unless we travelling. I did have a coupon that did in fact fit within the parameters of the offering – location, date, certain items only, etc.…

Staying a few days in Lexington, this Red Lobster was near our hotel and we love seafood. It’s been here for as long as I can remember and it was a favorite of my late-uncle. Being a Saturday night, it was busy, but no problem getting table for two.

With a coupon for a few bucks off for a two-dinner deal, my wife ordered seafood pasta and I had the seafood combo. Both were plentiful enough to hurt you in an effort to finish it all. Red Lobster proves that even being 600 miles from the Atlantic Coast you can get pretty good seafood.
