Red Lobster restaurants in Rochester NY

Before Red Lobster filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, it listed 87 locations across 27 states as “temporarily” closed. That included the restaurant at 655 Jefferson Road, Henrietta, which is now permanently closed.

The location at 1515 W. Ridge Road in Greece remains open.

The company’s bankruptcy filing in the Middle District of Florida details how Red Lobster has struggled in various ways, including a 30% drop in guests since 2019.
