The food is great! It stands above typical bar food but is priced well. The staff is friendly and the place is cozy and clean. Its refreshing to have unique food options in a small city.

Intimate bar with an interesting and varied menu. Late night snacks offered - love the hummus with warmed pita slices. Falafal is my favorite. Shrimp Pil-Pil is very popular. Fried Chickpeas are surprising good. Taking "Bar Food" to a whole new level of deliciousity! Always a friendly crowd and staff.

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.
