While on vacation to get in a little skiing we decided on The Red Onion. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. The next time we're in the area will definitely return.

Loved the fried zucchini! The bourbon steak was awesome and the creme Brule was to die for. Really liked this place. Our waitress was a pro!

The pimento cheese plate appetizer was unique and an item to try. The Greek turkey burger was delicious! The meatball sub was huge and out of this world!!

My wife and I ate here a couple years ago. We were able to return this weekend and our first meal was at this restaurant. Both times we ordered the wild mushroom lasagna. It was great and was served quickly and hot. I mean the cheese was still bubbling hot. This is a great dish and I would highly recommend... More

We always enjoy going to local restaurants. The food was very good. We love having a large variety in menu so that there is something for everyone. Both the service and size of the portions were great.
