Sunday nights used to be super packed and fun here, but recently it's died down, the DJ still comes out though, and will play requests. They have pretty good food, and average drinks. The staff isn't the friendliest, but the food makes up for it. They have a small little dance floor, and the have a nice lounging area near... More

The Red Ox has pretty good food, but it is a bit noisy. I guess that is what you get when you eat at a tavern. I have eaten dinner there twice this week when on business to Utica. The New York strip was very nicely cooked and tasty. I also had the Lake Perch, they were ok but the... More

Great proximity to our hotel - one minute walk. Nice place to relax after shopping all day. The drinks were cold and the food was decent pub food. We ended up walking back over later in the evening for drinks and entertainment and ended up having a great time!

The first time I ate there everything was great, however some sort of trivia game was going on in the bar area. Issue was the sound was so jacked up I heard it out side. Thought it was outside speakers, apparently not! Food was great so the next night I went back, listened and stayed to enjoy a great meal!

After a day of shopping we wanted some good beer and food and a bit of entertainment close to the hotel. The Red Ox offers all three and just a quick walk across the parking lot. We had appetizers and beer, in between dancing to a DJ along with other friendly patrons. A nice touch was the outdoor fireplace -... More

Have dined here before and the food and drink are good. The last 3 times however we tried to go there we were told we could only sit in the annexed portion in the back 40 as the entire bar and surrounding area is only for those coming to listen to the band. This is approx. 8 to 8:30. I... More

Have dined here before and it was good. This trip was only for a gift card. Very disappointed though. Went at 2 pm on a weekday , so it was not crowded, but it still took 15 minutes just to get the card. Three employees later and lots of running to the kitchen seemed a bit involved just to purchase... More

Check out the menu selections from the Michigan area. Some unique and seasonal items that make for some great dining. The pasties my wife and I had were as a good as ones we have had in the UP.
