My wife and I visited Redlefsen’s for dinner while spending a weekend getaway in Bristol, and found the meal to be excellent. Redlefson’s Rotissery & Grill offers the typical German menu and a bountiful mix of tap brews to compliment your dinner. I simply asked the waitress to select four of her favorite beers as a flight, and everyone was... More

We get roped into going here and sitting in the dining room a few times a year. It is always disappointing as to the service and the food is inconsistent. We occasionally go and sit at the bar and the service is usually better but of course the bartender can't escape quite as easily. Generally speaking Redlefsen's is one of... More

I've been here 3 times with friends and the best meal I've had is average. Good location, good beers, but average food quality and average service.

This is a hidden gem. We had a party for 60 people and each and every meal was served hot and with a lovely presentation. The food is delicious and the twinkle lights and candles make for a romantic atmosphere. The German beers and their famous German chocolate cake are not to be missed. The prices are reasonable, the dress... More

My wife and I went to Redlefsen's a few weeks ago and had a great time. We love to go there during October while they are celebrating Ocktoberfest. I have had to opportunity to be in Germany in October and Redlefsen's captures the same feeling on a smaller level. Don't get me wrong it is a great restaurant all year... More

My husband and I went to Redlefsens for their ocktoberfest. What a fun time we had, great entertainment, including a sing along, bell ringer and german dancers. The food was excellent also. I had the bratwurst and my husband had the cod. We will go again

I went to Redlefsen's for the first time with a couple of friends. The food, beer, and entertainment is all outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience, and would happily go there again. In fact, I would like to take my wife here when she visits from Rhode Island. The young guy at the bar was very friendly and professional.... More

It has a very good atmosphere to the place and service has been good every time we went. I am not saying this is the best German restaurant in the area, I... More
