Good spot for a German Beer

Good selection of authentic German Beers on tap + a Belgian on tap and others by the bottle. Situated directly across from the End Point / Start Point of the 14.2 mile East Bay Pike Path. It's a converted railway and a beautiful ride. If starting from Providence this is a great spot to stop... read more

We loved this restaurant in its original location on Hope St when it was run by the original owner. The food was average and overpriced on our most recent visit.

Visiting local friends from out of town and they took me here for dinner knowing I love scallops. So that's what I ordered and they were superb. My friends also ordered scallops and prime rib. The wait staff called my friend by name. Very friendly,but not bothersome.

Thank you so much for the complements. We are so fortunate to be close to some of the best local seafood anywhere. I buy as much of my seafood as possible from Foley out of New Bedford several times a week. The difference between fresh local and frozen is huge. I am so glad you had a chance to enjoy... More

We checked the menu outside before going in bc my friend has some dietary concerns. She saw a chicken wrap on the menu, so we went in, only to find out, that was the lunch menu that ended at 4pm. It was 4:20, our waitress would not even ask if they could make that wrap. There were no times listed... More

It is so disappointing that people are given the same right to a one star review as the person who got a cigarette in their salad at that place down the street. Our lunch hours are posted on the door. I have never seen a lunch menu in a nice restaurant that had hours on it so I think the... More

We love Bristol and wanted to try a new restaurant there, preferably one with outdoor seating, as it was a very warm afternoon. We happened upon Redlefen's and as it had an attractive outdoor patio, we decided to give it a shot. As a lover of European beer, I was immediately impressed by the beer list and opted for a...

Starting with the interesting selection of imported beers(many on tap) to the very nice selection of plentiful German food (sufficient non German options too) this restaurant is a must try. I had the Portuguese kale soup of the day which rivaled any I have had in authentic Portuguse restaurants. The wiener schnitzel was fabulous with spaztle (sp) and pickled cabbage.... More

Have been to Redlefsen's many times, which is a testament to its fine fare. Service is excellent, as is the food. The place to be in October worth checking out.

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
