Thank you. The last time I checked it was was out in the hinterlands of 128. Red Lobster is another one that is slow to show their face in Boston.

We have an OG near us.

The nearest Red Lobster is in Ct.

I can't imagine a RL succeeding anywhere near the coast in New England.

I think there is an Applebees right next to the Olive Garden in South Bay ... yikes!

I have yet to see a Red Lobster around here. I think we were spared mercifully from the bad chains for a long time.

Just hope Golden Corral doesnt show!

You're kidding! That is funny. Surrounded on three sides by water and excellent seafood restaurants and they thought they could make a difference.

Golden Corral has really good pot roast and fried chicken.

The one near me isn't horrible, but that could be that it is near corporate headquarters. The atmosphere is kinda terrible, but there are a few good items.

I'm amused we see ads on TV in this area for RL and GC and they don't have a presence. They buy ad packages that cover a large geographical region the can include areas where the have no restaurants!

Red Lobster tried to make a go in Bangor Maine. It was near the mall, but still surrounded by seafood restaurants selling better food for less money. I don't know how they would possibly think that it would be successful in Bangor, it's not a tourist town, and the locals know what real fresh seafood is supposed to taste like.
