EXPIRED Red Lobster has their popular Crabfest special back for the summer.
For a limited time starting July 11, 2016, guests can enjoy the largest variety of crab dishes ever offered on the menu, including four types of wild-caught crab, new crab preparations and new seafood combinations.
Guests who love crab legs can enjoy the new Alaska Bairdi Crab Legs Dinner – a generous portion of premium, wild-caught Alaska Bairdi crab legs, served with a full ear of Chesapeake-grilled corn on the cob.
For those that like a variety of preparations and different types of crab on the plate, the new Crab Lover’s Dream™ features wild-caught North American snow crab legs and king crab legs, paired with Red Lobster’s signature crab linguini Alfredo. Or, crab cake lovers can dive in to the new Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Dinner – three premium lump crab cakes featuring blue crab, paired with Meyer lemon aioli.
Alaska Sockeye and Coho salmon, fresh from the waters of Bristol Bay, Sandy Point and Prince William Sound in Alaska, complement the Crabfest menu. These species can be paired with the new Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes & Crab-Topped Salmon dish or simply grilled on Red Lobster’s wood-fire grill.
Guests will see the Alaska Seafood logo on Red Lobster’s menus next to the wild-caught Alaska crab and salmon options. This logo affirms Red Lobster’s long-standing support of sustainable fisheries and its commitment to protecting Alaska’s superior seafood for future generations. This is an extension of Red Lobster’s tradition of providing quality seafood to guests while maintaining sustainable fishing practices and seafood quality assurance.
This year, Red Lobster is also celebrating the fishing boats and crews that help supply crab to its restaurants, including the Deadliest Catch™ fleet. Guests can toast the fleet with the new Rogue Wave drink, featuring Sauza Gold tequila, blue curacao and house margarita mix topped with a splash of ginger ale and served on the rocks in a commemorative Red Lobster mason jar with the Deadliest Catch™ logo. Produced by Original Productions, Deadliest Catch can be seen on Discovery Channel.
Guests are invited to visit REDLOBSTER.COM/CRABFEST to learn more about the event, including new menu items, interactive games and weekly contest challenges.

About Red Lobster (from Wikipedia)
Red Lobster was founded in 1968 by entrepreneur Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby. Originally billed as a “Harbor for Seafood Lovers”, the original restaurant in Lakeland, Florida was followed by several others throughout the Southeast. General Mills acquired Red Lobster in 1970 as a five-unit restaurant company. The chain expanded rapidly in the 1980s.
In 1995, Red Lobster (along with Olive Garden and other sister chains) became part of Darden Restaurants, which was spun off from General Mills as an independent, publicly traded corporation. Today, there are nearly 700 Red Lobster locations throughout the United States.
