Cozy place. Looks like a small country house. Nice waiter Kendan and very good food! Try Camembert and Grilled Calamari and you'll be back there at your first opportunity.

This place is SOOO good! I'll drive 40+ minutes just to have breakfast here. Everything is fresh and made to order, worth the wait on a busy weekend morning.

Everyone in our family loved their lunch at the Red House. Really can't say enough about how good it is. We visit every time we are in the area and have not ever been disappointed.

This is a favorite spot for breakfast or lunch! The food is very good, and the servers are friendly. We like the frittata, and the soups are delicious! Best spot in PG for brunch!

There's a reason the Red House has been in business so long. This is a great restaurant. Food was excellent. Our server was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The fireplace helps make for an intimate experience. It's fairly small, so make reservations.

Adorable quaint little restaurant, ive eaten there for breakfast and dinner and both are SUPERB. The crab cake benedict and the red house burger are to die for. My only wish is that they serve breakfast a little later for those of us that like to sleep in and walk from home to eat brunch.

This is a wonderful place for breakfast, especially on the weekend, when they serve a combo breakfast/lunch brunch. Everything is delicious and the portions are huge! Go early, the place is small and fills up fast.

I’m writing to you regarding a disappointing dinner my fiancé and I had this last weekend. Wanted to share the restaurant with my fiancé but we got in later and ordered to go. The crab cakes which sounded very good were terrible. You know how great crab cakes have big chunks of crab and barely hold together. These were not... More

I love Red House Cafe. I have never had a bad experience, and the food is always delicious. I night recommend the Eggs Benedict and the smoked salmon with potato pancake.
