We attended a 50th wedding anniversary/family reunion luncheon at Redlefsen's. The buffet was outstanding with a fine selection of seafood, chicken and beef dishes. Excellent appetizers, salad and side dishes. Very good bar service and an accomplished wait staff. The meal was wonderful and the setting perfect. The restaurant is located in a park like setting along the waterfront, perfect... More

Food was very good and our server was kind (but too busy). We were a party of 10 and they accommodated us nicely. The only real problem was a big one though. My husband's meal was served at least 10 minutes after the rest of the table was served. It was very uncomfortable, with many at the table attempting to... More

Went there today by default and it was an excellent experience. The atmosphere was excellent as well as the service. I am not a fan of German food, but the food here was amazing. I was very happy that we went there and will definitely go there again.

An "Inperience" is an inspirational experience, an that it was at Redlefsen's. All Oktoberfest shows in October were sold out quickly, so proprietor Jeff Guertler booked us for another sold-out show in November. The Bavarian Brothers entertainers were absolutely superb, and lead singer and accordionist Roger Botelho was phenomenal. We were really appreciative of a bottle of genuine German Mosel... More

This is a nice place and incredibly clean. They offer German food along with regional items and any meal I've had there has been good. Their Octoberfest celebrations are great with the bands, shoe clappers, and traditional bell ringing.

An excellent evening with a menu that provides both full plate and small plate entrees are provided at a very reasonable price. The clam showder was one of the best ever, the German dishes were excellent. Wine was available at $5 to $6 a glass which is much less then other area restaurants.

Overpriced mediocre food and the worst service my husband and I have ever experienced. The waitstaff were very pleasant so I think it is a kitchen and management issue. Do yourself a favor, walk down the street and go to Christians. We had an amazing lunch there a month ago.

Our tour bus dropped us off in front of this restaurant with a limited time for lunch. After looking at the menu we decided to eat here rather than to search for another restaurant.
