Breakfast buffet at Red River looked promising when we ate there recently, with a large variety of options - fruit, yogurt, dry cereal, eggs, breakfast bagels with egg/cheese/ham, biscuits & gravy, fresh waffles, toast, etc. plus coffee and juice. Only problem was, the taste wasn't as good as the presentation. The fruit was the usual for December - melon and... More

Seems like this is the area they train new employees so service is spotty sometimes. Food is good and reasonably priced

There really isn't anything wrong with this place except that it has regressed from a restaurant that served some nice dishes including the best braised shortribs and garlic potatoes I've ever had to a short order shop. The menu now consists of sandwiches, burgers, and the usual unimaginative fried fish selections. The seafood platter I had was meager and overfried.... More

We were there late for the breakfast buffet so most of the goodies are gone, but the server was kind enough to ask what we want so she can ask the bring us. I think that was good service. The food was ok. nothing fancy.

We only ate here because we were waiting to attend the OSO fundraiser with Ryan Styles. We had to wait at least 15 minutes even though there was several tables open. Our food was greasy & tasted old. The pan fried oysters were so greasy I can still taste it this morning as I write this review. My husbands salad... More

Had the pleasure of eating here twice recently and wish I lived closer (Canada) so I could go here more often. My first visit was for dinner and as it was a lovely evening I opted for the Seafood Cobb Salad. It came in a large bowl and I expected it to be mostly lettuce but pleased to see so... More

Plenty of options included with room and breakfast. There is also the option of ordering of the menu at an additional charge. There is plenty of fruit and other healthy options as well as the usual eggs, biscuits with gravy, hash browns, waffles, toast, etc. etc. We liked it.
