“We celebrated a birthday here recently. The steak was excellent! I eat primarily carnivore and the kitchen prepared a skirt steak atop a bed of bacon. Not just a couple slices of average bacon. This was 6 slices of crispy bacon topped with a perfect medium rare steak! A great meal overall with one caveat when they gave our table to another party when we were 5 minutes late and told us they did that. We waited about 20 minutes for our table. Not the end of the world but a bit frustrating.”

I'm very excited to see what else they have to offer.The waiter helping us was of very kind by suggesting my mom a wine without much history with wine. She is a people pleaser and admitted she wasn't the biggest fan, but the ability to offer one's experience to assist was great nonetheless.”

I had the red snapper. Extremely tasty. Would absolutely order that again. Highly recommend Stevens.”

I will ALWAYS come to this Red Lobster when I am in the Gurnee area. I am grateful to this very kind woman who went above and beyond to assist a pregnant woman who just really wanted some surf 'n' turf. Thanks to everyone working on 3/2/2024. You all are a true asset to Red Lobster.”

I ordered for pickup through my app. I made an error with my order, it was completely 100% my own fault, but the manager was so kind and fixed it for me, even though he didn't have to. Service was quick and my smoothie was exactly like what I'm used to at my usual Jamba location, but to go above and beyond when the mistake was completely my fault, that sticks with me.”
