Not much to say. Food was ok. Wait staff mediocre. If I was close, I would probably eat there again. Seems like a place the locals frequent.

Diner food...we have all had diner food at one time or another. It isn't good, it isn't bad; well there is an exception, the Redwood Diner. From the warm welcome by the hostess to the waitress's "What can I get you?", you know that this is a town favorite. After looking at the rather extensive menu, my wife and I... More

The Redwood Diner is good for a reasonable inexpensive meal. It can be a bit chaotic at times but for the price I guess one cannot complain.

Good food. Good service. GREAT desserts. This is a busy place. Truckers and locals crowd the tables. Worth a stop.

I have been going to the Capitol District Renaissance Festival for three years and have eaten at this diner in the past. My husband and I think the food is average but it is very close to the hotel we stay at so we go for the convenience. I ordered the mac and cheese and it came with soup and... More

Not what is was 50 yrs ago. Hot dogs still awesome with their famous meat sauce, but other items just so-so. Manhattan chowder was was mostly potatoes. Stale bread on the thin corned beef sandwich. Better options available elsewhere.
