Is Red Lobster Going Away For Good? That doesn't mean they are going to close every Red Lobster location across the country. It means they have to reduce the amount of restaurants in order to stay afloat. According to the muckety mucks at Red Lobster, it intends to use the bankruptcy proceedings to "drive operational improvements, simplify the business through a reduction in locations, and pursue a sale of substantially all of its assets." Rumors of mass closures are unlikely which means we can breathe a sigh of relief. We have a very busy Red Lobster restaurant on Hooper Avenue in Toms River that we all love.
