“Super small, gloomy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

When driving by the Red Lion we always see the sign promoting the "Bar & Grill". Yesterday, we figured we'd give it a try. We love a good happy hour! Don't show up early, the gate does not open until 5 exactly, What a disappointment! This is not a pub or bar, just a small, windowless room, a few TVs and in a corner behind the lobby. It's really just a place for hotel guests to grab a drink or snack. The woman working the bar knew the 2 other people in there and spent all of her time LOUDLY chatting with them. It sounded like they frequent the place often. If I wasn't staying there, I'd pass this place up (had to try it once). There are lots of fun places for a drink and happy hour right in Old Town (Waterfront, Sirens Song, Gallagher's or Lost Coast).
