Anyone ever go for the Endless Shrimp deal that brought down Red Lobster?

No. I refuse to eat shrimp at Red Lobster. I live on the Gulf Coast and I am picky about shrimp, trying to eat shrimp from local shrimpers.

@exexec :) Felix's Oyster Bar in New Orleans meets my definition of what a seafood restaurant should be like :)

Me and Felix goes back to the 1960s when it was just one crowded place.

I haven't been to a Red Lobster in 10+ years. Seafood chains like Red Lobster and Crab Shack seem to be too much like what I can get from the frozen food department of our nearby super markets.

One we do like is the "Hook & Reel" chain. I live in the heartlands but grew up on the Gulf Coast and Hook & Reel does a better job at satisfying my memories of what seafood restaurants should be like.

Is that the one with the☠️sign?

I live on the East Coast. There are a billion better seafood restaurants over Red Lobster.

No....but that is not the reason they went bankrupt.

@JSul3 Private startups took over their client bases with both better and cheaper offerings. We have a Red Lobster just a few miles away at what's probably a high rent location that also uses a lot of TV promo advertisements. Meanwhile, there are startup seafood places with counter service, at low rent hole-in-the-wall places, and that don't do TV ads that have far better products. For those who don't like eating with plastic forks, they can bring their own metal forks or just do pickups.
