“Very Nice Steak House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We visited this place on a very busy night..FRIDAY..We had to sit in the back because we didn't make reservations. So reservations are highly recommend. The food was excellent. We had prime rib and it comes in small to large portion. Tons of food for your money.

“Very good dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a reservation for four on a Saturday night. We arrived early and were seated immediately. The atmosphere was that of fine dining experience and the price was high as expected. Service was outstanding. The food was excellent; each diner ordered something different and all food was excellent. I had a rib-eye steak with twice baked potatoes; the flavor was wonderful and the portions were ample. I would go there again for a special occasion.

“Anniversary/Easter brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I was looking for a nice place for brunch to celebrate our 10th Anniversary (as well as Easter) so while reading the local paper, saw an article that mentioned Red Tracton's would be open. Called them up, made a reservation and everything was set. It was a nice sunny day, great weather and a perfect location across from Del Mar Race Track. Walked in and promptly seated in the patio...great spot as we could see the track as well as palm trees, service was perfect and the food was awesome. I think they should open for brunch more often and we will definitely be back. Easter Brunch was a fixed menu and that was fine with us since it afforded us the opportunity not to overeat. But the portions were perfect and hit the spot. We started off with Red's Famous Lobster Bisque (smooth, delicious and nice portion of delicate and tasty lobster). For our main meal, we both selected the Filet Mignon Eggs Benedict (served with roasted potatoes and fruit). And to end the meal, we had the delicious Rice Pudding (with whipped cream and a delicious sauce).

“Outstanding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is an old standard. Great chops, liver and onions, fish and drinks. The wines are very reasonable with a price point about 2 X discount liquor prices.

I eat there about four times a year and have never had a bad meal or dish.
