We had a party of 9 & they were very accommodating. The restaurant looks worn, however, the food was delicious. Everyone had several different types of food (from the buffet, steak, blooming onion, pasta) and everyone was happy with the quality and taste of their food. The waitress was very friendly and provided great services even when the restaurant was... More

Atmosphere and decor were good. Steak was semi warm, baked potato dry. Salad and breadsticks were good. Price was upper middle and too much for what we got.

I was in town for my WIU graduation and hubby and I came here for our celebratory dinner. We both got the ugly steaks and they are DELISH. Bread sticks are yummy, and the home made onion rings come in a basket big enough for 4 or more folks. Nice hometown atmosphere, and our young man server was really attentive... More

Red Ox offers good food at reasonable prices. The service is good and your food is served just the way you ordered it. Red Ox is one of the best restaurants in Macomb.

We went for Brunch for my birthday. It was nice. I don't think I would do the buffet again. The food was ok. Just wasn't special, should have ordered the lunch special. It looked very good.
