Orlando, Fla. (July 1, 2019) – Red Lobster® is giving crab lovers a reason to celebrate with the return of Crabfest® - the largest variety of wild-caught crab offered all year! Starting today and for a limited time, guests can crack into Bairdi crab – a guest favorite – as well as Southern or Golden King, Dungeness and Snow crab options. Red Lobster is also excited to announce a special, limited-edition Crabfest entrée, the NEW! Captains’ Trio, inspired by Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch™ Captains, which will only be available the first two weeks (July 1-14) of the promotion while supplies last.
For a limited time during Crabfest®, Red Lobster is offering guests a special, limited-edition entrée, the NEW! Captains’ Trio, inspired by Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch™ Captains.
