Red Lobster, America’s #1 seafood restaurant, is now open in Pasay

After celebrating its 50th anniversary earlier this year, and having 745 restaurants in 11 countries, Red Lobster — in partnership with restaurant group The Bistro Group — is opening its first branch in the Philippines on Friday, November 16 at S Maison in Pasay City.

Famous for mouthwatering seafood and trademark Cheddar Bay Biscuits, the number one seafood restaurant in the United States is bringing their signature staples as well as new culinary creations to its Manila branch.

The 115-seater restaurant has a laid-back yet modern vibe with lots of light coming from the bayside.

Speaking to GMA News Online, Director of Asia Operations Catherine Souders says they’re really excited to bring the Red Lobster dining experience to another seafood loving country like the Philippines.

“Red Lobster’s growing pretty dramatically within Southeast Asia, and we’ve been wanting to enter the Philippines for many years now. And now the time was right for us with our fantastic partners, The Bistro Group… We [Red Lobster] know seafood and they [The Bistro Group] know the Philippines… so it’s like a great marriage.”

Souders says Red Lobster prides itself in its own brand of service that they carry to every branch they open.

“We really focus on providing the same dining experience — the ultimate seafood dining experience — in all our restaurants. Whether you’re in Dubai or Tokyo, you should have the same experience as they do here in Manila. What we really focus on is providing attentive, proactive service that makes the customers feel valued and appreciated,” she said.

She adds, “The smile from the server that greets your table, the passion that the team members have and that our chefs have in delivering the food, that’s the same. The brand has very strong core values and we have a very identified and clear set of guiding principles and mission that every team member is really passionate about delivering.”

According to Souders, the Red Lobster team worked closely with the chefs of The Bistro Group to come up with ”localized” versions of Red Lobster classics as well as original dishes using the best of Philippine ingredients, including local produce and of course seafood.

“We did localize some flavors to fit the Filipino palate and we also localized some ingredients to reflect the best that the Philippines has to offer,” Souders explained, pointing out the country’s local supply of fresh seafood like Barramundi.

Souders also pointed out that they offer only sustainable, traceable, and responsibly sourced local seafood at Red Lobster in Manila. Check out the must-orders below:


Honey Bleu Cheese Salad

Here is an indulgent salad of romaine, lollo rosso lettuce, bleu cheese dressing, croutons, honey, roasted peanuts, and parmesan cheese. An excellent way to get your greens!



Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Almost too good to be real, the Cheddar Bay Biscuits are freshly baked by batches several times a day to ensure that each biscuit delivered to the table is warm, fluffy, and oh-so-good. It’s cheesy and savory and the texture is simply indescribable. Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits are so good that it warranted its own Facebook page with over 972,000 likes as of posting.



Seaside Nachos

Bar Harbour Seafood Bake


Spaghetti in garlic butter sauce with mussels, scallops, squid, and shrimp surprisingly packs quite a punch!



The Red Lobster Seafood Feast

Souders as “the best of the sea”, includes Maine lobster tail, snow crab legs, shrimp scampi, fries, wild rice, veggies, and butter sauce.



Red Lobster Blackened Barramundi

Blackened local Barramundi served with roasted potatoes, snow peas, and beurre blanc sauce is delicate and delicious.



The Cod New Orleans

The Shrimp and Kani Pizza

Seafood pizza with homemade crust topped with Mozzarella, Parmesan, shrimp, kani (crab), fried garlic bits, and drizzled with anchovy dressing.



Truffle Mac N' Cheese

Red Lobster does its own take on the classic comfort food, featuring avatappi pasta tossed in cheese sauce and mixed with Mozzarella and Colby cheese. You can even add seafood like Langostino, Scallops, and Shrimp!
