Lobsterfest Extravaganza Returns at Red Lobster

Red Lobster’s annual lobster extravaganza includes four exciting new entrees and five classic favorites.

Red Lobster, the nation’s largest seafood restaurant chain, is welcoming back its annual Lobsterfest event, featuring the largest selection of lobster dishes available all year.

For a limited time, guests can choose from exciting options including the new Lobster in Paradise featuring a crispy coconut Maine lobster tail, as well as classic favorites, like the Lobster Lover’s Dream, this year featuring a butter-poached Maine lobster tail alongside a roasted rock lobster tail and lobster and shrimp linguini.

“Lobsterfest is one of our guests’ favorite events because there are so many different preparations and combinations of lobster to enjoy – more than any other time of the year,” said Chef Dustin Hilinski, Executive Chef and Director of Culinary at Red Lobster. “Our new butter-poached lobster is cooked to a sweet, tender buttery perfection for a melt-in-your mouth bite every time. For those who prefer a more indulgent option, the crispy coconut-fried lobster tail delivers the perfect crunch with just the right amount of sweet.”

There are over 700 Red Lobster restaurants in the U.S. and Canada. The chain is owned by Golden Gate Capital.
