I would not go back... if you are on your way home with teens, maybe it would be fine. Decent volume and price, but I was not thrilled with the atmosphere.

A group of 5 of us visited after an evening squash match.. We each had a different meal. Several chose the evening specials, beef stew and meatloaf, which were warming on a cold and rainy night.. They enjoyed their meals.. The burgers and Rueben were very nicely done.. The onion rings are excellent. The side salads were crisp and cold... More

I could not give The Red Bridge Tavern 4 stars. I really wanted to but just could not. The atmosphere is your typical local restaurant. I went here with my two teenage kids. The restaurant was busy. We were seated very fast. This is a restaurant where the locals go for dinner, talk and don't leave for few hours. You... More

Small venue with average pub food. Friendly service but really nothing special as far as ambiance and food.

For the last few years this has been one of our go-to spots. The seafood is always great. The salads and burgers are great. Beer selection just got an overhaul and new taps installed fixing the one small issue. When Lucy asks if you want bread, say yes.

I went on a Friday evening for dinner. Large menu selection and numerous specials. The relaxed atmosphere was pleasant with dim lighting, the prices were reasonable for food and drinks. Would definitely recommend for a casual evening out.

My hisband and I stopped into this restaurant for dinner. It was recommended by friends. It was an unbelievable experience. We sat at the bar. The restaurant was NOT crowded. We waited an hour for our food. When we asked the bartender if she could check on or orderr, told us she had a private party for ten in the... More

We certainly remember when this location was Crawshaws many years ago, but have not been here for MANY years. We won a gift certificate and decided to give it a try Friday night. As we have aged we go out to eat a lot earlier (also to avoid crowds or having to wait). We got right in and were waited... More
