This place is great. The food is very good. Very large portions. The bacon omelet has tons of bacon in it. They give you 6 pieces of french toast. Cant wait to try them for lunch and dinner.

My son loved the Red Hut for its proximity to the hotel (we could walk), but also because of the food, which was fantastic. We loved the people who worked there, who were so friendly and accommodating!

Very cute inside, didn't expect such cuteness, and very good food. I liked this place! Close to my motel, the Alder Inn. I recommend this place!

We arrived well before the opening time for bfast 3 days ago....the wait staff were welcoming and on it...we were waited upon and had our meal within 10-15 minutes. Egg plate was typical bfast fare---definitely a notch or two above Denny's! So appreciated! Eat here....you'll love the clean restaurant and sweet staff! And GREAT food!!!

We went in on a late Saturday and had a short wait but things were hopping. The food was scrumptious and abundant. We all enjoyed our breakfast and the Bloody Mary's were amazing:) The service was wonderful always there to refill the coffee and the water.

Even though it was dinner time, I ordered pancakes with a side of bacon. They offer a short stack (2 pancakes) or a regular stack (3 pancakes) and I'm glad I ordered the short stack. The pancakes are basically the size of the dinner plate! They were light & fluffy and of course come with butter & maple syrup. The... More
