I went on a Friday evening for dinner. Large menu selection and numerous specials. The relaxed atmosphere was pleasant with dim lighting, the prices were reasonable for food and drinks. Would definitely recommend for a casual evening out.

Red Bridge Tavern is a non-pretentious establishment which serves ample portions of tasty and reasonably priced fare, with lots of options. The fried calamari appetizer was fresh and tender, and my mac & cheese was wonderful. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed the meals.

We had a wonderful filet at this restaurant. It was one of the specials and was excellent. The side dishes were also very good.

Had another delicious meal at Red Bridge. Friends I was with said that, as usual, the food was great and the prices so reasonable. I tend toward vegetarian but can always find something appealing. Red Bridge always has several specials, too.
