Red Lobster Spokesperson Explains Why the Ship Went Down


SAN ANGELO, TX – Red Lobster has released an official statement on the closure of their San Angelo location.

The following is a statement from a Red Lobster spokesperson:

"After more than 38 years of being part of the San Angelo community, we have made the difficult decision to close our restaurant at 3909 Sunset Drive. As part of our normal course of business, we continuously monitor restaurant performance and may from time to time choose to close or relocate restaurants like this. Members of the management team at the San Angelo location have been offered transfers to other Red Lobster restaurants, and we are working with other restaurants in the area to help our team members find new employment opportunities."

While I will miss Red Lobster, my primary choice for seafood in SanGlo has always been The Wharf.  I have frequented that place since the 80's and never had a bad experience.  When I visit SanGlo I stay across the street so I can walk over to The Wharf, have a decent meal, and then walk back to my room.  Easy.  Enjoyable.

SanGlo is great for steak and Tex-Mex, but beyond that its choices are limited. I DO like the Cork and Pig, though, and I have eaten about a thousand breakfast burritos at Mr. T's... with jalapeños, of course.

After reading the Yelp reviews, I'd say the management team should all be fired. When you get critical feedback, make every effort to rectify the situation, not just ignore it.
