I would not say it is 100% German cuisine, but there are a few German authentic dishes on the menu. We were a party of 5 and I did make a reservation because it was a Saturday night, but it was not necessary. It was not crowded at 5:30 pm. But never hurts. I had Goulash with spätzle -Delicious; My... More

Thank you so much. I am glad you enjoyed yourselves. I I'd agree that we weren't busy on Saturday. In fact it was dead quite by our usual standards. The Tom & the Patriots were playing in the AFC playoffs that night, and we even closed early. I was driving home past other restaurants that were also closing early because... More

We were visiting friends in Bristol and had a very nice dinner at Redlefsen's. Several German dishes were offered along with other European choices. There seemed to be something for everyone. Our waitress (I'm sorry to say I can't remember her name) was very friendly, helpful and attentive. My husband had one of the specials - beef stroganoff. It was... More

The atmosphere was fun, and the pictures a kick. My veal was a bit tough, but my husband liked his steak.

We tried their Oktoberfest special with the festive atmosphere and spirited folk dance performance. We were seated at a great window table in the bar room. My wife ordered their Gewürztramin and I had a liter of Warstein dark in the boot, a nice visual treat. German servings tend to be large and we skipped the appetizers. She ordered the... More

I am glad you had fun at Oktoberfest. You and I spoke that evening as your dinners were arriving. I was a little disappointed with the specific comments on the food quality. Having just returned from a trip to Bavaria for Oktoberfest I can assure you our food is authentic and much like it is in Bavaria today. The Rindergulash... More

So we attended Octoberfest last year and had a great time. This year we made reservations a few weeks ago for Octoberfest tonight. They advertise live music, and an Octoberfest menu. We arrived as one of the first families to attend They seated us in the bar, and all I can say is that it's not really Octoberfest, it's really... More

Hi John, I am really sorry to hear that you didn't have a good time the other night. Also I feel that your review is unfair. #1 Yes, you attended an evening which the guests in the dinning room were particularly fun and the dancers do take requests ,so they played a few more songs in that room. But they... More

Four of us went last night for Octoberfest. The food was excellent and the entertainment was so much fun. There was music and dancing. It was a very busy night but all of the staff were friendly and helpful. Could not have asked for a better event.

We came here a few years ago and enjoyed it so we decided to stop in for dinner on our anniversary. The food was okay, slightly pricey for just okay. The service was slow. The restaurant had more staff than customers but service was slow. Disappointing.

A very nice small, locally owned place. The owner is always there watching over things, and it shows. Food is well prepared and delicious. Servers seem happy to be working there. It was a good experience.

My wife and friends visited Redlefsen's Monday afternoon for lunch during tropical storm Hermine. It wasn't busy but there were other couples like us visiting the coast to see the turbulent surf. We split the Red's salad and it was very good. I had a fried combination of shrimp and calamari in batter and the shrimp and calimari was nice... More
