Very nice beer and wine selection. Interesting specials posted on chalk board, appears to be a haunt of Hobart staff. May be crowded but worth it.

This was recommende to us by a local cafe owner for a dinner venue, and he was right. As we approached we were a little uncertain as it looked crowded and the average age was much younger than us.

I've been to Red Dove several times, whenever I'm near Geneva, and it has always been excellent. Nice beer and wine list. Very good menu. Oysters! It is an old time bar with a tin ceiling and very nice bar. Only about 15 tables.

The food was very good. All local, in season, and well-prepared. Note: it is a very small place, and when full, it is very loud. Great lively atmosphere. It has good energy, but you have to speak up to be heard if it's a peak dining time.

They were out of many menu items, and did not have anything else that interested me on the menu. The shoestring fries came highly recommended and were more trouble to eat than anything else.

Food was dry, the staff was rude. I waited over 45 minutes for my families dinner. I do not recommend this establishment what so ever.

Always a treat eating here. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly. They locally source the food as much as possible. Excellent beer and wine list. Highly recommended.
