Red Lobster’s Lobsterfest, always one of the best times of year, is back! This year, Red Lobster is kicking off the return of its famous lobster event with four brand new and five favorite lobster entrées.
When we think of lobster, we typically picture a whole lobster, or a lobster tail that’s grilled or steamed. But when we heard about all of the different ways Red Lobster is serving up its lobster for Lobsterfest, we knew we had to go in and check it out.
Whether you want your lobster roasted, steamed, grilled, topped or stuffed, or even paired with shrimp or steak, Lobsterfest is truly the place to enjoy everything lobster.
Here’s a look at what you can expect during your next visit to Red Lobster during Lobsterfest.
Lobster Mix and Match (New)
For the first time ever, Red Lobster is giving guests the opportunity to pair their perfect lobster creation by offering the Lobster Mix and Match, which features a choice of two (or three) lobster tails from four options to create your own entrée – Creamy Shrimp-Topped Lobster Tail, Seafood-Stuffed Lobster Tail, Steamed Maine Lobster Tail, or Grilled Maine Lobster Tail.
Lobsterfest Surf & Turf (New)
Lobsterfest Surf & Turf, also new to Lobsterfest, is a twist on the traditional Surf ‘n’ Turf. It features a split Maine lobster tail baked with Red Lobster’s signature seafood stuffing, paired with a wood-grilled sirloin topped with shrimp in a lobster cream sauce.
Wood-Grilled Lobster and Red Shrimp (New)
For people who like to pair their lobster with other seafood, Red Lobster is also offering a wood- grilled Maine lobster tail, paired with a garlic-grilled skewer of wild-caught jumbo red shrimp.
Lobster Lover’s Dream (Returning)
If you want to enjoy the different flavors of rock and Maine lobster tail on one plate, Red Lobster is bringing back the Lobster Lover’s Dream, featuring a roasted rock lobster tail and sweet split steamed Maine lobster tail, served with lobster-and- shrimp linguine alfredo.
You can’t go wrong with one of the most recognized Red Lobster dishes – the Ultimate Feast. This dish features a tender Maine lobster tail, steamed North American snow crab legs, Red Lobster’s hand-crafted garlic shrimp scampi and Walt’s Favorite Shrimp.
As always, all entrées come with a choice of Garden or Caesar Salad, unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits and the choice of a side. During Lobsterfest, Red Lobster is offering two new seasonal sides – Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms, and Roasted Carrots and Butternut Squash with Bourbon Brown Butter.
Chilled Lobster and Shrimp Cocktail (new)
If you’re a fan of a shrimp and lobster combination, then the Chilled Lobster and Shrimp Cocktail is your catch of the day. This seafood-centric appetizer is an innovative and refreshing way to enjoy a traditional favorite.
Lobsterfest Fizz and Island Lobster Punch (New)
Seafood isn’t the only new addition to the Lobsterfest line-up. During this limited-time event, Red Lobster will also be offering two new cocktails – Lobsterfest Fizz and the Island Lobster Punch – both served in collectible Coastal glass wear.
