Starting and for a limited time, Crabfest is back at Red Lobster.

During the highly anticipated, crabtastic celebration, guests are invited to break out of their shells and get crackin’ with new Crabfest Creations. Choose from a full pound of steamed Snow or Bairdi Crab Legs and then select a delicious flavor option like new Roasted Garlic Butter, new Honey Sriracha, new Lemon Pepper, or Simply Steamed – all served over crispy potatoes, with a choice of side. Additionally, for those craving a tasty surf and turf entrée, the new Crab & Oscar-Topped Sirloin features ½ lb. of snow crab paired with a 7 oz. sirloin topped with lump crab in a decadent garlic cream, served with choice of two sides. And, of course, no Crabfest meal is complete without warm, buttery Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

During Crabfest, guests can complement their meal with a fruity and refreshing cocktail like the new Watermelon Martini or new Ruby Mule.

Choosing between an appetizer or dessert has never been easier – the answer is both. This year’s Crabfest lineup delivers, with clawsome new menu items including:

  • New Crabby Cheese Fries – Seasoned fries topped with Red Lobster’s cheese sauce and lump crab in a decadent garlic cream. Perfect for sharing!
  • New Strawberry Cheesecake – Red Lobster’s vanilla bean cheesecake with a fresh strawberry topping and whipped cream.
