Red Lobster is an American casual dining restaurant chain that is owned and operated by Darden Restaurants, Inc., headquartered in Orlando, Florida. The company also has operations in Canada, the United Arab Emirates, and Japan. As of May 29, 2011, there are 698 Red Lobster locations worldwide.

Red Lobster was founded in 1968 by entrepreneurs Bill Darden and Charley Woodsby. Originally billed as a "Harbor for Seafood Lovers", the first restaurant in Lakeland, Florida, was followed by several others throughout the southeast. In 1970, General Mills acquired Red Lobster as a five-unit company. With new backing, the chain expanded rapidly in the 1980s.




Ultimate Seafood Celebration

Just in time for the holiday season, Red Lobster is introducing the Ultimate Seafood Celebration. During this limited-time event, guests can celebrate with a variety of special seafood dishes, seasonal cocktails and a brand-new dessert perfect for celebrating the season with family, friends and loved ones.

The Ultimate Seafood Celebration features a delicious dish for every seafood lover.

For guests who crave an abundant, delicious feast of lobster, shrimp and crab, the New! Grand Seafood Feast (pictured above) is a perfect choice. The dish features a stuffed Maine lobster tail with crab and lobster stuffing, steamed wild caught snow crab legs, savory brown butter scampi and golden brown, hand battered shrimp. 

For guests who enjoy grilled seafood, the New! Ultimate Wood Grilled Feast (pictured below) is a great choice, with a Maine lobster tail and two skewers of sweet, bourbon glazed shrimp and sea scallops  all prepared on an oak wood fire grill and served over a sweet and savory tomato jam.

Surf and turf lovers can try the New! Ultimate Surf and Turf, a lobster and crab stuffed Maine lobster tail, topped with creamy lobster sauce, paired with an oak wood fire grilled peppercorn NY Strip steak and a fresh, roasted Portobello mushroom sauce.

To complement their meals, guests can choose from a selection of seasonal cocktails and a brand new dessert. The New! Berry Winter Smash combines Wild Turkey American Honey bourbon, sour mix and sweet, juicy muddled blackberries. The Old Fashioned, a cocktail classic, is also being offered with Knob Creek  bourbon whiskey. To finish the meal with a sweet treat, guests can try the New! Warm Caramel Toffee Cake, a toffee infused pound cake topped with caramel and honey roasted pecans and served with vanilla ice cream.
