Red Lobster will reverse a policy instituted last year which saw new servers hired at a lower pay scale and increased the number of tables each server handled at a time in order to cut costs for Darden Restaurants (DRI -1.5%). The company admits customer service complaints rose to a level that it couldn't ignore any longer.

  • Yup. PNRA CMG and even MCD are killing DRI. They don't offer amazing food so now they are rolling out specials at OG and RL like Dinner for 2 for $25. Can't be great for margins.
