I'm a big seafood lover and so is hubby, so this past week we made a date to get to Red Lobster to hit Crabfest. There are several limited time menu items available for Crabfest from traditional crab legs to a fabulous crab-topped salmon that I ordered.
We started off with Crispy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps. Loved, loved, loved the soy ginger sauce (but had to remove the jalapeños (too much kick for me.) :)
The casaer salad had freshly shaved parmesan, which is always a lovely touch.
And one of the best parts of a visit to Red Lobster is always those awesome cheddar biscuits!
Hubby went with the Ultimate Feats - Tender Maine lobster tail, steamed North American snow crab legs, the signature garlic shrimp scampi and Walt’s Favorite Shrimp. It's a great sampling of the best on the menu. I, of course, had to sample and the crab and lobster are simply melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
I went for a Crabfest special - a grilled salmon with a fabulous lobster sauce that was amazing. It also came with two of their wonderful crab cakes and I opted for mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli for my sides.
Although I was completely stuffed, we managed a few bites of this beautiful Chocolate Wave dessert, which was a super moist cake covered in mini chocolate chips and drenched in chocolate syrup with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Superb finish to the meal.
We visited the location in Munster, Indiana, which is just a few minutes across the Illinois border. (Foodies will know it as the home of Three Floyds Brewery.) As always, the food is a huge factor in the experience, but it's the service that completes it. Shout out to our server, Grace, and super pleasant manager, Carl, for being so great.
Crabfest is over Tuesday when the next promotion rolls in, so get over for a taste of Crabfest before it's done!
