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.
One of their better locations.
It's a chain restaurant. The food's pretty much the same at every location. The only variables are the staff, the available parking, and the geographic location of each restaurant. In this particular Red Lobster, the parking lot is large, the staff is occasionally coherent, and the food is slightly better than other locations. If I have to eat at a Red Lobster (and believe me there are much better places for seafood in San Diego!), I've had better experiences here than their other restaurants.
