Red Lobster Gluten Free Menu

Red Lobster is a hugely popular seafood restaurant brand known for their seafood feasts and of course their incomparable Cheddar Bay Biscuits. While seafood is typically a gluten-free friendly choice, we wanted to know how the gluten free options at Red Lobster stack up against the rest?

According to their official gluten free menu, there are as many as 54 gluten free options available at Red Lobster, depending on your level of gluten sensitivity. The most commonly asked question about gluten free dining at Red Lobster is whether or not their famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits are gluten free. Unfortunately, although you can purchase Red Lobster gluten free biscuit mix at most grocery stores, the biscuits served in the restaurant are not gluten free.

There are plenty of other gluten free meals you can order at Red Lobster like anything from their Classic Menu which has delicious protein options like Steaks, Crab Legs, Grilled Salmon, Garlic Shrimp or Rainbow Trout. If you are dining with a big group many of the options from their Feasts menu are also gluten free friendly as well.

Finally, they have a nice selection of appetizers and sides that can round out your meal. We recommend the Bacon-Wrapped Jumbo Sea Scallops or their Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. The only downside is that none of the soups offered here are gluten free so steer clear from this section when ordering.
