Was gonna dine here last week and it is good and closed, this is unfortunate as this was an outstanding restaurant. Does not indicate if they are gonna reopen at another location, nor is there any information available as to why they closed...

I drove 45 minutes because I had heard more positive than negative. The online picture looked like a nice family owned business which I support. The title says it all. Everything was just OK. I eat out 6 nights a week and believe I am a fair critic. I can honestly say there was no effort to be better than... More

I live close to this restaurant. The food is good. The staff is good. The owner is there all the time, but is not a people person. It would go a long way if he showed some gratitude to his customers. In the past this restaurant had a better general manager and better food.

Very good food with an eclectic menu. Very good service from wait staff. The dining area is small so go early or be prepared to wait.

Spent 12hr in Monroe for a softball tournament. It was a treat to escape the park and eat something NOT fast food. The service was excellent, and the menu surprisingly diverse. The shrimp appetizer was amazing. Watch out though, as it's a bit small. Will definitely return!

I've visited before, but never written a review, and after this visit I knew I had to. The Red Onion is very small with only a few tables, but is locally owned with a publike atmosphere. Tonight I ordered the cod fish sandwich with onion rings and slaw, while my dining partner had a cheeseburger with chips. I cannot describe... More

There aren't many non-chain restaurants in this area, so it's nice to have a local place that is worth visiting. The ambiance is nice, though the small size causes some lengthy waits from time to time. The wait-staff are attentive and the food well above average. They have a lot of seafood choices, but a number of non-seafood also. It's... More

Restaurant needs a facelift as it looks and feels dirty. Food is average. Prices are high. Not quite the gem that I was led to believe. Will probably not return.

I eat at this restaurant frequently and everything on the menu is delicious. It is unfortunate that the place is so small, but waiting in line for a table is worth the wait.

After visiting my aunt at a nearby retirement community in Monroe, my cousin and I had a very nice lunch at the Red Onion. This place is a cozy pub that has a welcoming ambiance to it. It is in an old building that looks and feels like it could have been a tavern for several hundred years! The menu... More
