On June 21, 2006, my wife and I went to 2400 South Pleasant Valley Road and the new Red Lobster Restaurant, which had just opened on Monday. As I had expected, there was a waiting period and we were given a pager to be called when it was our turn. It took only 12 minutes before we were seated.

We had been looking over the menu while we were waiting, and I was disappointed in the selections it offered. There were no fried oysters listed; the only oysters were on the half shell as appetizers. The only clams available were fried strips, and the crab selections were somewhat limited. The greatest variety was in shrimp dishes.

Of course, the menu also had lobsters. A tank in the waiting area held live lobsters that you could select for your dinner, at $21.99 per pound. There was also a lobster pizza available as an appetizer, and several types of fin fish entrees. Non-seafood items were a few steak and chicken dishes.

My wife ordered an apple walnut chicken salad, while I had half a dozen steamed oysters on the half shell, followed by a popcorn shrimp order. It took the food a long time to come, and I was disappointed in the oysters. Only one of the six was full size, and two of them were not as fresh as I would have liked. However, the shrimp platter was good. As usual, neither one of us had room for dessert.

In retrospect, I believe that the Red Lobster is overrated, and I don't believe we'll be going there often. My favorite local seafood place is still the East Side Raw Bar and Grill on Route 50 East.

Dined here last evening and was very pleased. Food itself and portions were good. Everything seemed fresh - no hint of 'rubbery' as some other reviewers experienced. Service was a little slow, but in their defense, they were pretty busy. And who wants to rush through a nice meal anyway, especially if you are in pleasant company. — Anonymous Reviewer

Every time I go to Red Lobster since I was in college, I suspect that they nuke the food (except the lobster and crab legs) the shrimp and if the have scallops are ALWAYS shrunk and gummy which is a dead giveaway, and usually the fish is tasteless. It's probably the only way they can get food out quick enough though. On the other hand their biscuits are great and their lobster pizza is really good. But if we were going for biscuits and pizza we would be going somewhere else, wouldn't we? — Anonymous Reviewer

We had dinner at Red Lobster last night and the food was great--I love their biscuits! I was amused that, while being seated, the hostess told us that our 'food specialist' would be with us shortly. When the server came to our table, I asked her if she was our 'food specialist'. She said 'yes'! The poor girl had obviously never been a server before, let alone a 'food specialist'. Good food--poor service--and a greatly inflated job title! — Anonymous Reviewer

This barely qualifies as a fresh seafood restaurant. Everything I've gotten I suspect has been microwaved, except for the lobster. I mean cooking a fish in a plastic bag? Shrimp that look shrunk and taste rubbery and tough? Those are all classic signs of a microwaved meal... — Anonymous Reviewer

Ate at Red Lobster last night for the first time in a long time. Food was great, service was great, and I thought the "bang for your buck" was right on. My 13.99 entree included salad, bread, side dish, and 8 huge shrimp! Everyone at our table had the same experience. We'll definitely go again soon! — Anonymous Reviewer

Red Lobster used to be so good. What happened? They are too expensive for what I feel is frozen seafood. This used to be my favorite place to go..not anymore. — Anonymous Reviewer
