(Ottawa, Canada) • Endless shrimp at the All-you-can-eat deal at Red Lobster. A must for all seafood lovers and for $19.99 you can eat as many shrimps as you want. There were several flavors and you make 2 orders every time the waiter comes to collect the plates.
Visit date: 10/2019
Ambiance: Classy feel with just enough marine related decor. The restaurant is big with several booths and tables.We were there early this time so the dimmed lights didn’t bother my friend.
Service: We didn’t have a reservation but we didn’t need to wait this time. Our waitress didn’t seem to be having a good day but was polite and fast bringing the menu and waters. She took a while to come to take our orders and we had to get up to the front to pay as she didn’t come to bring the bill later. She checked in on us and we asked her to refill our glasses of water.
Cleanliness: Our table, plates, utensils, glasses and chairs were clean.
Food wait time: My husband had the all-you-can-eat shrimp, I had chicken and my friend had a salad. For the endless shrimp, every time he ordered them it took quite a while for them to bring the plates. The place was pretty empty and we didn’t get why it was so slow, we were there for about 2 hours at least to make sure it was a money well spent. They brought my friend’s plate first and mine only after 5 minutes. Good thing she ordered a salad otherwise her food would have been cold.
Food presentation: Very appetizing all plates.
Portion: They were generous portions mine and my friend’s. The plates with shrimp were pretty small.
Taste: I had chicken with mashed potatoes and rice and it was worth the wait, it was very good. My friend liked her salad and my husband loved his shrimp and would eat there again.
Price: On the high side.
