This has become one of my favorites for two reasons, the value for what you get is incredible and the food is truly great. The pan fried haddock with a spicy shrimp sauce is one of my favs. The chowder is different every time but always good. They offer specials on Fri & Sat and possibly Thurs as well. Ultra... More

I stopped by the Red Bridge Tavern to grab a quick lunch. It has a pleasant pub atmosphere that could use a little updating. Very much a neighborhood restaurant with the usual pub food and a smattering of Portuguese fare (nice). I had the fish and chips which was not only delicious but a healthy portion. All in all, an...

In my decades of living in the area, i never knew about this restaurant until recently. My husband works nearby, so had frequented it for lunch several times, but not until recently did we both visit for dinner. I certainly will return. Pub like cozy atmosphere. Check out their daily food specials. Decent portions. Decent service. Located at the end... More

Great assortment of food choices in a comfortable tavern atmosphere. Prices are decent and food was good although they were out of some things on their menu and specials list (which I assume means people loved them and ordered them.) Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals which included fried whole belly clams , steak sandwiches and roast chicken. Our... More

The Red Bridge Tavern offers great specials that are fresh and delicious. The people are friendly and you can sit around and chat before and after your meal. While lots of things on the menu are delicious we often order the specials since they are usually so thoughtful and delicious. They also make a great cosmopolitan!

This is a local favorite for EP townies. Food is very good and a great value. Corn bread is a MUST have! Service was friendly and spot on. Chile was homemade and very thick. Burger just average but a good buy. Portions are generous.

Swordfish, tuna, scallops over the Asian salad are super. Brought friends who will be coming, from a distance, to meet us for another great meal. Corn bread and delicious crusty beard are served with dinner. Oh, yes the burgers are top notch. Can'i go wrong, here. Friendly service wants to please.
