Good Find

Very nice surprise on our last leg of a cross country trip. Pleasant wait staff & excellent appetizers, soups & entrees. The Hank's cheesecake was a perfect ending to a great meal. When we are in Joplin, will definitely stop here

What a fun place to go to. Food is very good and to our tastes. My wife and I both had great dinners and the service was very good. We really enjoyed ourselves. It is a busy place and it is worth the wait if you have one.

This place never disappoints, for special times, business meeting, or whatever. Always quality food, tastes great, unique atmosphere in an old downtown building.

If you're looking for some great lunch options, then Red Onion is the right place. Good food, good service and reasonable prices.

One of the best restaurants in Joplin for lunch or dinner. The French Onion Soup is superb and don't forget to try the Cucumber Dip.

The ambiance is great! The good is excellent! The price is on the upper end. I have never heard anyone complain about the Red Onion.
