With restaurant dining rooms closed the past month, date nights have had to evolve a little bit, and Red Lobster still wants to be part of them.
The seafood chain has launched Date Night Deals, a new collection of meals for two that, yes, include those addictive Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
But is it a good deal? Here’s what you need to know:
Choose between a Lobster Date Night, Surf & Turf Date Night, or Ultimate Date Night for your main entree.
The Lobster Date Night features 2 Maine lobster tails as its main entree, and the Surf & Turf Date Night has the lobster tails plus 2 New York strip steaks. The Ultimate Date Night main entrees include the lobster tails plus snow crab legs, garlic shrimp scampi, cornflake-crusted shrimp, and rice.
All Date Night dinners include an appetizer, side, 2 desserts & 4 Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
For appetizers, choose between coconut shrimp, crab-stuffed shrimp rangoons, or lobster-artichoke-and-seafood dip. Family-size side choices include green beans, rice, mashed potatoes or french fries. All meals come with choice of two of these desserts: chocolate wave, key lime pie, or vanilla bean cheesecake.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Cheddar Bay Biscuits are a dessert option, but no matter what, the meals come with 4 of the biscuits. If you need more, you could always bake Cheddar Bay Biscuits at home.
At around $23 – $35/person, these meals are actually a pretty good deal.
The closest platter we could find to these Date Night Deals is the Ultimate Feast, which includes 1 lobster tail, 1 serving of crab legs, garlic shrimp scampi, a side of Walt’s Favorite Shrimp, and rice. That costs $31.99 at my local Red Lobster, and that’s just for one person. Double that, add two desserts at $7.49 apiece, and you’d easily spend $79 just to recreate the Ultimate Date Night, which costs $69.99.
The Surf and Turf Date Night is also $69.99, while the Lobster Date Night is just $45.99. Cost does vary by location, so make sure you check your local Red Lobster’s prices.
Get Date Night Deals via curbside pickup or delivery.

Ambiance comes free of charge with the Date Night Spotify playlist and Zoom backgrounds.
Red Lobster has curated its own date night playlist on Spotify, including romantic songs by John Legend, Beyonce, Boyz II Men, Alicia Keys, and more.
And if you’re doing a double date with the help of Zoom, Red Lobster has a number of free backgrounds on the Date Night Deals page, including one that makes it look like you’re at a Red Lobster, and one that looks like you’re in the lobster tank.
