Chef Robert Irvine visits Longbranch Steak and Seafood in Fayetteville, Georgia, the restaurant was a wedding gift to owner Lisa. Ever since opening the restaurant she has been struggling financially and it has caused problems in her marriage. The food was terrible, there were cockroaches, there was no management of any kind and the service was slow but Robert turned it around by improving the menu, decor and teaching the staff.
What Happened Next?
When Robert revisited, they had reintroduced some of the old favourites to please the regular customers and Lisa had stepped up as manager. There aren't many reviews of the restaurant after Robert's visit that I can find, they closed shortly after airing in August 2012. One review says they were only focusing on the regular customers.
