In April 2024 we learned that the company was considering bankruptcy after substantial monetary losses due to the pandemic, labor costs, and all-you-can-eat shrimp.

Unfortunately, Red Lobster did indeed announce the closing of close to 50 locations. As mentioned above, only one Michigan location (as of now), was named.
