A casual night out

Great food, pizza, salad, limited but yummy vegetarian. Some nights it's loud, but generally comfortable. We will go again for sure.

This is a rather typical pub, but it serves not only excellent burgers but also more surprising fare. You might find, for example, osso buco or rack of lamb among its specials on any given evening, and vegetable side dishes can include roasted Brussels sprouts along with more typical sweet potato fries. Eggplant fries are on the regular menu for... More

An honest knotty pine pub that would be fine to take your mom to. Good selection of sandwiches, soups and salads

We fall in and out of love with this place as the food isn't consistent. The specials are great and the prices are very reasonable so it's still a good place to eat.

Red Bridge Tavern is a Nice Local Tavern. We were greeted as soon as we stepped in, very friendly and nice energy from the staff and their customers. While this place is not fancy it has good food and great service! Yes, we would go back.

Red River Tavern is a low key, unassuming, down to earth place to have a very good meal. The menu is varied, with lots of interesting selections, meat , fish, poultry, salads and pasta. There is also a very interesting offering of specials. It tends to be very busy. We were lucky to get right in on a snowy night... More

From the outside, you might not expect great food and excellent service. Step inside, and you will be surrounded by warm hues of the floor to ceiling paneling. You will also be treated as a close friend by the hostess/waitress/bar tender. Try the eggplant fries, one of the best things I had ever tasted. The menu has many options, including... More
