Went here for a change of pace, because we don't like going to the same places all the time. It wasn't bad, we went with another couple and there were only two other people in the place when we got there. Service was slow and the server honestly did not know a lot about the products they served at the... More

Again, like Nomads, lousy service. Not enough employees waiting on people, whether at the bar or at tables. We also had the pleasure of a family sitting next to us swearing the entire time. A mom f bombing her ids loudly. The staff never addressed it, even though they were all aware of the problem. Will not return.

Not a bad place. Here to watch few games & drinks. Cesar salad w chicken was pretty good (I'm super critical, esp of chicken). Waiter very attentive (pretty sure he was new) & pleasant. Guys I'm with enjoying the drinks & games. More of a restaurant feel than a bar but it works.

The food is CISCO, or some other mass producer, so it is good but not GREAT. They do have a good selection of beers. We like Red's because the bartenders are friendly, customers are talkative. The place is clean well lite and quite so you can talk or watch the game on TV. Customers are there to have a drink... More

We visit a couple times a year from out of state. We like this place because it is quite enough to talk during dinner. It is mostly locals but they offer several local beers. The food is good. (We lean toward "pub grub"). The staff is always friendly, if you speak first, other wise they leave you along. I like... More

We ate dinner here while visiting Nomads since it offered a better menu than Nomads snack bar. The servers were friendly but were understaffed. We had two groups meet up...total of 15 people and they weren't prepared to handle a group that size. The food was average..nothing to brag about or complain about. The atmosphere was fun and we had... More

If you are looking for hot night life, music and easy pick ups this is not your place. After a hard days work we wanted a couple of beers and some pub grub and that is exactly what we found here.

After the crazy wild time at Nomads indoor adventure - it was nice to just have to step inside a quiet restaurant. Pretty varied menu, many things to choose from, service was good, food came quite quickly and was just right.
