Without any warning for seafood lovers, Red Lobster has closed dozens of locations across the U.S., including a few in New Jersey.

For many locations, the furniture and equipment are being auctioned off online right now.

According to the Red Lobster website and Google listings, the New Jersey locations that are now closed include Bridgewater, East Brunswick, Lawrenceville, and Ledgewood (Roxbury).

A photo posted by News 12 shows a "This location is closed" sign on the Ledgewood location's door.

"We look forward to serving you at another Red Lobster in the future," the sign reads.

The Ledgewood location's ovens, refrigerators, freezers, and more are being sold to the highest bidder in an online auction that ends on Thursday.

One winner will get everything the restaurant has to offer. As of Tuesday afternoon, the highest bid was around $830.

New Jersey 101.5 has reached out to Red Lobster for comment. As of Tuesday afternoon, Red Lobster hadn't released any information about the closures or the future of the company.

It was reported in April that Red Lobster was considering a bankruptcy filing to catch up on expenses. The Florida-based chain has hundreds of locations throughout the country, including 12 that are still running in New Jersey.
