We had afternoon drinks at this bar. So enjoyed the vibe! Excellent service and friendly bar staff. We noticed that every evening there was live music and always lots of people inside. Such a cool place to have a drink.

We stepped in from the evening snow to the warmth of the Red Onion. There were lots of tasty choices on the menu. We selected the Rocky Mt Trout with crab and the Elk Bolgnese. Both were very nice, flavorful, and hearty. Good spot.
