Restaurant Impossible - Longbranch Steak and Seafood - CLOSED

Longbranch Steak and Seafood Restaurant Impossible

In this Restaurant Impossible episode, Chef Robert Irvine visits Longbranch Steak and Seafood in Fayetteville, Georgia.

The restaurant was a wedding gift to owner Lisa, who had no experience in running a restaurant.

Ever since opening the restaurant she has been struggling financially and it has caused problems in her marriage.

The food was terrible and was returned during the service, there were cockroaches in the kitchen, there was no management of any kind of the staff and the service was slow.

The decor was dark and dreary with tacky red tablecloths on the tables.

Robert turned it around by improving the menu and teaching the staff new dishes for the menu.

The decor is given a dramatic makeover - the new decor is lighter and new booths have been added.

On relaunch, the customers love the new, bright modern decor and can tell that the staff are happier.

The customers love the new food and plates are coming back to the kitchen empty.


What Happened Next at Longbranch Steak and Seafood?

When Robert revisited, they had reintroduced some of the old favourites to please the regular customers as the changes were a bit too dramatic for them.

Lisa had stepped up as manager and they had hired new staff.

Longbranch Steak and Seafood closed shortly after airing in August 2012.

There aren't many reviews of the restaurant after Robert's visit but one review says they were only focusing on the regular customers and another mentions issues with service as the staff adjust to the changes.

Longbranch Steak and Seafood was Restaurant Impossible season 4 episode 1 and aired on July 11 2012.
