Comfortable, quick service, full bar. You can enjoy many seafood and Portugese dishes here. Quiet atmosphere with delicious food. The Spicy Shrimp is my favorite!! Reasonably priced and very friendly staff!

We stopped in on a Friday night and were greeted warmly and were seated as a couple had finished and were just leaving . I had the seafood chowder which was just perfect filled with fish and was very tasty. My wife... More

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.

This is a rather typical pub, but it serves not only excellent burgers but also more surprising fare. You might find, for example, osso buco or rack of lamb among its specials on any given evening, and vegetable side dishes can include roasted Brussels sprouts along with more typical sweet potato fries. Eggplant fries are on the regular menu for... More

Great food, pizza, salad, limited but yummy vegetarian. Some nights it's loud, but generally comfortable. We will go again for sure.
