In 1988, Red Lobster removed the background color.
In 1995, the logo was updated for the second time. Restaurants during this logo era used gable roofs.
In 2011, the logo was updated for the third time, and made the letters all uppercase, added the slogan "Fresh Fish. Live Lobster." below it, smoothed the colors of the lobster, and filled in a black background. New and renovated restaurants with this logo use a flat roof with gables on different sides. This logo first appeared in 2009 as part of Bar Harbor" restaurant prototype modeled after coastal New England.
