Red Lobster is one of the more expensive casual sit-down restaurant chains, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get discounts and food deals on everything — even lobster.

We’ve got the details on how to get the best Red Lobster coupons and where you can find all the Red Lobster deals — including daily specials that you can grab every single weekday.

So, let’s raise a claw with Clawde (the Red Lobster mascot) to celebrate being frugal with these tips to save money at Red Lobster.

Download the Red Lobster Rewards app.


Just by signing up for the Red Lobster Rewards program, you get access to Red Lobster coupons and special offers. Complete your profile to unlock all the benefits. Once you become a Gold Member, you earn 1 point per $1 spent. 

You’ll also enjoy perks like 10% off your next dine-in meal, 12 free Cheddar Bay Biscuits on your next $15 carry-out order, access to bonus points, and a free birthday reward.

Earn a free appetizer or dessert when you spend $125.

Every time you earn 125 points ($125 spent), you get to pick one of the monthly rotating appetizers and desserts as your free reward. Based on average pricing, that’s a little less than 1% cashback, so it’s not the best deal, but if you frequent Red Lobster, it’s a nice bonus.

Find the best coupons on the app.

Red Lobster doesn’t email coupons anymore. Now, the best coupons can be found on the rewards app.

You’ll get two coupons per month in the app. We’ve seen coupons for free drinks, $0.25/gallon off at Shell stations when you spend $50 at Red Lobster and free delivery through DoorDash.

Get freebies and discounts on your birthday meal.

Birthday offers vary and may include $5 or 10% off your meal, free appetizers, or free desserts.

Make sure to join the Red Lobster Rewards program at least 10 days before your birthday to get the coupon or freebie in your Red Lobster Rewards app.

Get Endless Shrimp for $25 on Mondays.

We live for these daily Red Lobster specials. Every Monday, dine-in customers get the Red Lobster Endless Shrimp deal for $25. You get to select three types of shrimp and one side at this price.

The choose-three shrimp entree is typically $20, so you’re getting all-you-can-eat shrimp for just $5 more. You easily cover that $5 with just one extra helping of your favorite shrimp choice.

Note that all regular prices vary by location.

Enjoy a full pound of snow crab legs for $20 on Tuesdays.

On Tuesdays, diners get a full pound of snow crab legs with one side for $20. This feast is typically $27.99, so you save $7.99. And it’s the best value Red Lobster Daily Special at 28.5% off

Order a steak and lobster dinner for $25 on Wednesdays.

Wednesday customers get a 7-ounce sirloin paired with a Maine lobster tail and a side of their choice for $25 — that’s $4 higher than we saw in 2023, but still a good discount. 

Regularly $33.99, you save $8.99 or 26% when you enjoy this surf and turf meal on Wednesday. 

Pair a lobster tail with shrimp scampi for $20 on Thursdays.

Replacing 2023’s $15 sea scallops and shrimp, Thursday diners get a Maine lobster tail with shrimp scampi for $20. This meal isn’t typically on the menu, but if you order both items separately it’ll cost you $26.98. The Thursday special saves you $6.98 or 26%.

Fish Fry Fridays are $15 every Friday at Red Lobster.

Red Lobster’s Friday fish fry price has increased 25% since last year — up to $15 from $11.99. Regularly $16.99, this daily special only saves you $1.99 or 11.7%. You’re better off treating yourself to a meal on Tuesday for better savings.

Ask for extra biscuits to save $4.49.

The Cheddar Bay Biscuits are, arguably, the best thing on the Red Lobster menu. And they’re endless — order as many as you want during your meal, and take all of the extras home. In fact, you can grab an extra portion after you’ve finished your meal and take it home with you — a savings of around $4.49.

Note: To get bottomless biscuits, you do have to order an entree. We have heard of some locations charging a take-home fee — it’s worth asking your server before trying this hack.

Opt for a family meal to save up to 38% per person.

Red Lobster family meals are a money-saving option for feeding a family of four. Here are our top picks for best value family meals.

By looking at the calorie breakdown, you are likely getting smaller portions when you order the family meals, but some of the price differences are well worth it.

Eat before 3 p.m. on weekdays to get lunch specials and save.

Red Lobster lunch hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. Their lunch menu varies by location but has some favorite classics available at lower prices than the dinner menu. 

The biggest savings is the soup, salad, and biscuit combo because that isn’t an option on the dinner menu, and ordering them a la carte is nearly $5 more expensive. Two other great options are the Shrimp Scampi and Walt’s Favorite Shrimp, both 18% off during lunch hours.

Save $2 on Shrimp Linguini by ordering a la carte.

The shrimp linguine alfredo meal is $17, but if you order a side of garlic alfredo linguine at $6.49 and an order of the garlic shrimp scampi at $8.49, you pay $14.98 or $2.02 less. 

Visit during happy hour from 3 - 6 p.m. for specials on drinks and appetizers. 

Some locations offer Red Lobster Happy Hour from 3 - 6 p.m. on weekdays. Specials vary by location, but we’ve seen $3 draft beers, $4 wines, and $5 appetizers as part of the happy hour menu. 

Prices vary widely by location, contact your local Red Lobster for more happy hour details.

Buy Red Lobster gift cards at Target for 5% to get a discount every time you dine.

If you’ve got a Target RedCard, you can get your usual 5% discount on select gift cards — including restaurants like Red Lobster. Purchase a $50 gift card and pay $47.50 with your RedCard savings. Then stack the gift card savings with these Red Lobster hacks to save money every time you visit.
