FAQs about the Red Lobster Menu

What menu items have been discontinued at Red Lobster?

Before the global crisis of 2020, Red Lobster used to offer Unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits. The offer was basically an eat-all-you-can cheddar bay biscuit for every purchase of an entree. It has been unfortunate that the food joint decided to remove that feature and offered a limited free two pieces of said biscuits instead. If you wish to have more, you’ll have to purchase them by the dozen or half dozen. Fortunately, in my experience two of these biscuits is enough to satisfy my appetite. 

Other than the unlimited biscuits, there are no other known officially discontinued menu items at Red Lobster. Some locations may claim one item is “discontinued” when they actually mean “unavailable” due to supply chain challenges. 

An example would be the Rock Lobster Tail. Some locations may not have all the ingredients at a given moment hence customers not being able to order them. That doesn’t mean other locations don’t have them too. Unless an official announcement from the restaurant chain has been made, the menu item lives on.

Are there any discounts you can claim at Red Lobster? 

The best way to save on every visit to Red Lobster is to join their rewards program called My Red Lobster Rewards. Here you can earn points to be redeemed and/or exchanged for perks, discounts, freebies, extras, and more. Other benefits of joining the My Red Lobster Rewards Program include the following:

  • Birthday Rewards
  • Inside Information
  • Special Catch Reward (4x a Year)
  • Free Unlimited Games on the tabletop device in-Restaurant
  • Early Access to Selected Promotions
  • 75 My Rewards Points that can be redeemed for free food

Like other customer loyalty programs, the more you spend at Red Lobster the more reward points you earn. For each dollar you spend at Red Lobster, you earn 1 point. When you get up to 125 points, you get a free reward option. These menu options rotate on a monthly basis. Some of the regular reward items you’ll find include the Chocolate Wave Cake or Vanilla Bean Cake from the dessert menu. Soups like the New England Clam chowder or sharable tasting plates are also frequently made available to members.


Lobsterfest is back.

One of the distinct differences between the My Red Lobster Rewards loyalty programs and others is that you level up in status after hitting certain a points threshold by becoming a Gold or Platinum member. Becoming a Gold member is simple. All you need to do is fully complete your profile when singing up for the rewards program. Once you hit 300 points or $300 in annual spend to become a Platinum member, you’ll get unique benefits like unlimited table top games for free on the table and double points on all to-go orders.

Red Lobster does not have any company-wide policies on accepting AARP or senior discounts. And select locations offer student discounts at around 10% – 20% off when presented with a valid ID. You’ll want to call ahead before dining to see what offers are available. 

Like so many other large national chains, Red Lobster will send coupons by direct mail, in newspapers, and other local publications. Make sure to check your mail for unexpected deals that come out for this restaurant.

What are the most popular menu items at Red Lobster?

Red Lobster has a lot of worthy menu items to be considered for this list. However, nothing can beat the top three most popular items of the restaurant in this diners humble opinion. 

The Ultimate Feast

The Red Lobster Ultimate feast offers you a chance to taste a variety of dishes on a single platter. This menu item offers a serving of tender Maine lobster tail, North American snow crab legs, and an option to choose between garlic shrimp scampi or Walt’s Favorite shrimp. Each dish comes with melted butter, lemon, cocktail sauce, and choice of two sides.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Red Lobster’s cheddar biscuits were so delicious that people can’t get enough of the ultimate cheddar bay biscuits offer the chain used to have with every purchase of any of their entrees. Eventually, they realized they needed to bank on its popularity and cut the offer to just two complementary biscuits and charge extra for additional orders.

Admiral’s Feast

Considered an equally worthy substitute to the Ultimate Feast, Red Lobster’s Admiral’s Feast is a treat for those who love fried-to-golden-perfection finger food. This dish features Walt’s Favorite Shrimp, fried coated bay scallops and clam strips, and golden fried flounder all served with a variety of cocktail and tartar sauces. It also comes with your choice of two sides. You can choose from any of the following sides:

  • Broccoli
  • Orzo Rice
  • New! Bacon Mac & Cheese
  • Crispy Brussels Sprouts
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Creamy Lobster Mashed Potatoes
  • French Fries
  • Baked Potato

Who is the target audience of Red Lobster’s menu?

Red Lobster aims to woo upper-class consumers with its seafood menu that’s expected to be more expensive due to the product. What I mean by that is customers expect to pay more for a plate of fresh caught lobster than a hamburger.  They also serve the vast space of Middle America that doesn’t have many quality seafood dining options available. Despite these differences, Red Lobster is still classified as a casual dining restaurant chain.
