Red Lobster has entered the over-the-top chicken-and-waffle game.
The brand’s variation of the dish includes a crispy, buttermilk-battered and fried split Maine lobster tail and the “waffle form” of Red Lobster’s popular Cheddar Bay Biscuits, according to a company representative. The dish is drizzled with maple syrup. Red Lobster also sells boxed Cheddar Bay Biscuits mix at retail locations.
The lobster-and-waffle dish is a limited-time offer and is part of Lobsterfest, a yearly promotion that started in late January. The dish is priced at about $20, which varies across the country. Other new dishes for Lobsterfest include lobster truffle mac and cheese and stuffed tilapia.
This year, Red Lobster celebrates its 50th anniversary and is commemorating the occasion with two signature cocktails during Lobsterfest — Tropical White Sangria and Lobster Lover’s Punch.
Red Lobster has over 700 locations in the U.S., Canada and internationally.
