Red Lobster Teams Up with Flavor Flav to Welcome Back Crabfest in the Most Flavorful Way

After Calling Red Lobster ‘One of America’s Greatest Dining Dynasties,’ Flavor Flav Makes It Known Crabfest Is Here to Stay

Orlando, Fla. (June 6, 2024) – It’s flavor time! When longtime Red Lobster® fan Flavor Flav reaches out to rally fans, the only fitting response back is… Yeah Boyeeeee! Together, Red Lobster and Flavor Flav are letting fans everywhere know that Crabfest is back and when you gotta have seafood, you gotta have Red Lobster.

Fans have taken to social media over the last few weeks to share their love of Red Lobster, pleading to #SaveTheBiscuits, while reminiscing about their most cherished memories dining at the restaurant. Among those was Flavor Flav and he’s here to kickoff Crabfest in the most flavorful way.

“We love seeing our fans show up and rally for us, so when Flavor Flav reached out, we answered the call and invited him to join us in reminding fans we’re here to stay,” said Sara Bittorf, Chief Experience Officer at Red Lobster.

This year’s Crabfest lineup is full of flavor and guests can indulge their crab cravings by sinking their claws into the largest variety of crab dishes offered all year. As part of Crab Your Way℠, guests can choose a full pound of steamed wild-caught crab legs (Snow or Bairdi*) and then select a delicious flavor option like NEW! Cajun Butter, Roasted Garlic Butter, or Simply Steamed. Claw-some fact: The Bairdi crab is sustainably caught off the coast of Alaska from the icy cold waters of the Bering Sea.

During Crabfest, guests can enjoy a full pound of wild-caught crab legs prepared their way, choosing from flavors like NEW! Cajun Butter, Roasted Garlic Butter, or Simply Steamed.


“Crabfest has been a guest-favorite event for years and we’re excited to bring the flavor, along with a variety of wild-caught crab for our guests to enjoy, now and for generations to come,” added Bittorf.

But the flavor doesn’t stop there. With craveable crab creations starting at just $20, guests can choose from the NEW $20** Creamy Crab Carbonara, NEW Crab & Lobster Duo and NEW Snow Crab & Crab-Topped Steak. For those looking to level up their meal, the NEW Crab Mac & Cheese is the perfect cheesy addition, and the NEW Big Breezy Hurricane will have guests sipping straight into summer.
