Red Lobster is whipping up a seafood-inspired take on chicken and waffles. Instead of chicken, they’ve opted for deep-fried lobster to pair with their waffles, made with the chain’s cult-favorite Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix.

The new Lobster and Waffles dish features buttermilk fried Maine lobster tail perched atop a Cheddar Bay Biscuit waffle and drizzled with maple syrup. It’s a bit of an upscale take on chicken and waffles because of the lobster, but the combo of sweet, savory, salty, and cheesy sounds promising.
The fact that Red Lobster is doing buttermilk-fried lobster tails is dope, but really, we’re all here for the “Chedda Bae” waffles. Anyone who’s visited the chain is in the know on how craveable the biscuits are. And utilizing the mix to transform them, whether it be into bundt cakes or waffles, is always gonna turn heads and get Red Lobster fanatics excited.
Red Lobster’s unique seafood spin on the classic chicken and waffles will hit restaurants starting March 26th. The menu price will vary by market, but averages out to roughly $19.99. It’ll be on the menu nationwide for a limited time and while supplies last during this round of Lobsterfest.
