Recently visited the Red Car Brewery with family. The restaurant was in a lull thanks to our timing so seating was immediate. Several at our table ordered beer, I quite enjoyed the bitter on special that evening. Our server, Jessica, was fantastic. We were a big party and she was right there taking care of everything. Food was delivered quickly... More

The food here is terrific. Two people had separately recommended it to me, but I'm not a drinker so an evening in a brewery was of little interest. But I went with friends and was knocked out. I had the special, a kale caesar salad, which was great. They had pizza and steaks, and everybody liked our meal. (They also... More

We go here often for casual business lunches. The menu has lots of good options for all types of eaters. Salads are good, the pizzas, burgers, and pasta dishes are excellent.

I met with friends after a meeting and ordered the Salmon and baby kale salad. The salad was dressed with a Caesar dressing and served with shards of parmesan cheese and croutons. The salmon was grilled with great spices and served warm over the salad. It was very good and served with fresh bread and dipping sauce. The service was... More

I've been at Red Car many times. The main courses are great but my favorites are the appetizers. They are big, one can easily be satisfied with them. The soups of the day are really good, i.e. chili, chilaquiles soup, etc. My favorite appetizer is the 3-mini pulled pork sandwich, delicious, nice presentation and served with a fresh small cole...

I went to the Red Car Brewery for a quick lunch after a meeting. I had Motorman Bacon Cheeseburger. The burger was really good, I like the spicy ketchup, but might have liked just a little less. Maybe next time I’ll have it on the side. The beer was great, good service, nice place. I will go back.

Went here with the wife and I had the cheddar burger and she had the beef dip. The burger was great and the beef dip was a little dry and not a lot of flavor (deduct a point). The beer battered fries are always good here. The IPA was very good and recommend it. The service as always been very... More

Plenty parking. 1st time to go there, not sure I'll go back but just to have beer and try other appetizers. We were the only ones waiting for a table of 7 which took about 30mins. We came here because a closer restaurants wait was 45imns. There were many small tables which could have been put together, but I guess... More

For the quality of food they serve the prices are a bit high. The iced teas are terrible. The salads are OK. The main problem is the servers, they take too long even if the restaurant is half full.

The food was fine, a couple of the beers good. The service was pleasant; could have been better, there's no excuse for three people all to have empty water glasses when their meal isn't finished. Is there anything I experienced that would want me to come back......not really.
