Get ready for some serious foodporn, guys! I can’t even begin to tell you all how awesome my latest nom adventure was. It was my parents’ 30th anniversary so I decided to spoil them with a fabulous dinner at Red Lobster. We love Lobsterfest and go every year to indulge so I thought it’d be a nice way for me to treat them…and myself, ha. Lobsterfest has been their largest and most iconic event for over 30 years, and it’s the ultimate celebration of everything lobster.
We went to their location in Hanover, MD Saturday and had a wonderful time. We started with cocktails and a bajillion cheddar biscuits (don’t judge me, they’re THAT delish). I was excited to see that they had two new dranks on their menu: the Lobsterfest Fizz and the Island Lobster Punch. I ordered the Fizz (vodka, sweet mango, passion fruit juices, Sprite, sour mix, and Grad Marnier), and it was super yum! Red Lobster gets bonus points for serving these cocktails in collectible Coastal glasses that you can take home!
Anywho, for my main course, I ended up getting the Lobster Lover’s Dream aka a rock lobster tail, a Maine lobster tail, creamy lobster-and-shrimp linguini alfredo, AND broccoli (!!!!!) I love that I got to try a bunch of different preparations. Just look at that succulent goodness! It really doesn’t get much better than fresh lobster dipped in warm melted butter.
My dad ended up ordering something off their regular menu, but my mom decided to go with one of their new Lobsterfest dishes: their Surf & Turf. She got her steak medium well, and it was cooked to perfection. Topped with shrimp in a lobster cream sauce, each bite was on point! I know because I ate half of her dish, ha. If you like eating your lobster with other nom proteins, this is an absolute must-try.
Too much deliciousness for one picture!
We ended our meal with their Bananas Foster Cheesecake, featuring two slices of caramel cheesecake topped with warm, freshly sliced bananas, caramel and spiced rum, served with vanilla ice cream and candied pecans.
A HUGE thanks to Red Lobster for the awesome experience! We had a great time stuffing our faces thanks to our wonderful waiter, Michael. He took such good care of us. If you ever find yourself in the area, make sure you ask for him! Celebrate your “lobsterworthy” milestones here with your loved ones for fun times all around.
