Buffalo-area Red Lobster restaurants ‘temporarily closed’

AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) – Local seafood lovers were left adrift Monday with the sudden closure of four Western New York Red Lobster restaurants.

Locations on Maple Road and Transit Road in Amherst, as well as locations in Blasdell and Lakewood, are all listed as “temporarily closed.”

A handful of other locations across the country have also closed, while others remain open.

Last year, the chain reported a quarterly loss of $11 million, attributable to its endless promotion of shrimp. A recent CNN article detailed the aftermath.

WNYers still looking for their Cheddar Bay Biscuit fix can visit the locations that remain open in Niagara Falls, Ontario and Rochester.

News 4 has reached out to Red Lobster for comment and will keep you posted on their response.
