Went for lunch as a special treat. Waitress talked me in to the much bigger bowl of clam chowder. The bowl was indeed big , but without exaggeration it was LESS THAN HALF FULL--and probably had the equal amount of the cup! The crab cakes were okay. The price was ridiculous for the 3 teaspons of soup. The service was terrible terrible terrible. Spent a ton of money, LEFT HUNGRY!!!-- and I am a very thin woman. Felt as if I had just eaten an appertizer. I adore seafood. ForgetIing the AWFUL SERVICE for a moment (tho the waitress was suddenly terrifically attentive when she brought the check AFTER I told her I didnt need anything else--), what I detested was the TEENY , truly TEENY TINY PORTIONS @ HUGE, RIDICULOUS PRICES.
Btw, if you order the clam chowder, bring a fishing rod to hunt for the miniscule clam bits. It was nicely seasoned--but who cares? Left starving with a badly dented wallet.
Red Lobster Cruces--needs to close or get new management.
Red Lobster: BAD BAD BAD! Better to give yr $20 lunchmoney to charity. Youll leave famished-or broke!
Terrible is how I describe this Red Lobster, but I imagine that the others are about the same. On a recent visit (1/10/08) we were told we would have to wait about 30 minutes. Yet there were tables available all over! Once seated, we ordered our drinks, then eventually meals. Food comes, salad run of the mill, and then the main course. Cold, cold, cold crab legs, lobster undercooked, portions shrunk to unbelievable portions - especially considering the price. The waiter didn't refil the ice teas, but did the kids sodas. Upon complaining, the crab legs were returned and a new portion was brought to the table. Nothing more though, and considering we complained I was surprised. A final tab of orver 100.00 bucks for five of us. We will NOT return to Red Lobster again - anywhere! Las Cruces needs a Landry's plain and simple, and this Red Lobster needs to go bye-bye!
