School books are closed and vacation mindset is here, which means that it is time for Red Lobster Seafood Summerfest. While the seasonal classic has many diners visiting their local restaurant many times, a new offering is making flavor waves. Hungry to try BBQ Bacon Grilled Shrimp at this year’s Seafood Summerfest?

For this year’s Red Lobster Seafood Summerfest, there is an array of new and classic menu offerings. In addition to the always tasty Cheddar Bay Biscuits, there are shrimp, lobster and more options on the menu.

The most talked about addition to the Seafood Summerfest menu is the BBQ Bacon Grilled Shrimp. The sweet and smoky BBQ sauce highlights the flavors of the grilled shrimp. Topped with crispy bacon and green onions, the combination hits all the flavor notes.

Served over orzo and with a choice of one side, it is a robust dinner. Savory, sweet, smoky, it is a superlative offering. The BBQ Bacon Grilled Shrimp is $18.99 as part of a three-course entrée.

In addition to the new entrée, other favorites are back. Those options include Grilled Lobster, Shrimp and Salmon, Steak and Lobster, Red Argentinian Shrimp Skewers and Live Maine Lobster.

Summer and lobster go hand in hand. Whether enjoyed with a side of melted butter, seasoned to perfection or just enjoyed on its own, it is an indulgence that cannot be overlooked. Who hasn’t celebrated that special occasion with Red Lobster?

While all the tasty menu items satisfy that grumbling stomach, there needs to be a beverage paired with that deliciousness. Luckily, Red Lobster has added a new libation that is perfect for summer fun.

The Summer Sangarita is the perfect cocktail mash-up. Blending sangria and margarita, it is sweet and tart. For someone who cannot choose between the two popular summer libations, this cocktail is a must try.

Or, if a glass of wine is preferred, Red Lobster has two new offerings. From Caymus Vineyards, the Sea Sun California Chardonnay and Sea Sun California Pinot Noir are lovely with any of the Red Lobster menu items.

All the summer fun has washed up on the table at Red Lobster. Seafood Summerfest is here, and the BBQ Bacon Grilled Shrimp is a must try. Raise a toast with the Summer Sangarita and enjoy all the tasty.
