Crabfest at Red Lobster
Crabfest, the ultimate celebration of everything crab, is back at Red Lobster for a limited time! Explore the largest variety of crab dishes at Red Lobster all year, including five types of wild-caught crab from the waters off the coasts of Alaska, Canada, and near the coasts of South America.
My husband (Blake) and I chose to have date night at our local Red Lobster to indulge in Crabfest. We had an awesome time! Choosing an entree was hard because the whole Crabfest menu sounded delicious. This is one event that you do not want to miss!
Learn About Crabfest
The story of Crabfest starts at the source: on the boats out at sea, searching for and catching the delicious crab that ends up on your plate at Red Lobster. All of the crab served during Crabfest is traceable to the source.
Through Red Lobster’s partnership with Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch, you can see this sea-to-table journey for yourself! Watch Wild Bill (a crabbing expert and sea captain of the Summer Bay) navigate the waters of the Bering Sea, work with experts to inspect the crab caught on the docks, and join a Red Lobster chef in the kitchen to learn how they expertly prepare the dishes for Crabfest.

You Have To Try The Crab Dip!
We started our Crabfest meal off right, with the NEW! Three-Cheese Crab Dip. This creamy blend of crabmeat and three cheeses (cream cheese, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack) is served warm with artisan bread. The three cheeses are a great combination and they pair perfectly with the hunks of luscious crabmeat. Blake and I loved it!
A trip to Red Lobster would not be complete without their signature Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Yum!
Our Crabfest Entrees
I opted for a Crabfest favorite, the Crab Lover’s Dream®. This dish features wild-caught North American Snow crab legs, king crab legs, and Red Lobster’s signature Crab Linguini Alfredo. North American Snow Crab is known for its trademark large clusters, snowy-white meat, and sweet, delicate flavor. Red Lobster knows how to cook crab legs; the meat came out in huge chunks with almost no work from me.
Blake chose the NEW! Southern King Crab Leg Dinner (whole Southern King crab legs served with your choice of two sides) with corn and a Caesar salad. Southern King Crab has a mild flavor and delicious texture. Blake’s crab legs were cooked perfectly, too.
Other Crabfest entree selections are the NEW! Dueling Crab Legs, Crab Cakes and Crab-Oscar Salmon, Crabfest® Ultimate Surf & Turf, and Shrimp-Topped Crab Cake Dinner. In the mood for an alcoholic beverage? Try the NEW! Crabfest® Cooler, a tropical blend of Malibu®, Midori, Sour Mix, and pineapple with a Blue Curacao Foat, served in collective Coastal Crab glassware. Check out all of Red Lobster’s Specials here!
Celebrate Any Occasion At Crabfest
Blake and I had the perfect date enjoying Crabfest at Red Lobster’s Jackson, Mississippi location (6357 Interstate 55 North Frontage Rd). Our food was wonderful and Demondre provided great service.
Although we chose to have a date night, Crabfest is perfect for any occasion: birthdays, anniversaries, achieving a goal, saying thank you, or just because. Crab lovers will go crazy over the variety of menu items. You do not want to miss Crabfest at Red Lobster, here for a limited time!
