We met a few friends for lunch on a Thursday afternoon here. Always good food and good service. It was a bit loud in the main area so our server suggested we move to the terrace. Great idea. We could chat and hear each other.

After having to wait at the buffet for two hours, we decided to ditch that idea and go here for dinner. Deanna was an amazing waitress! She was warm, friendly, and smiled a lot. Please give her kudos!

Attended for their current Tuesdays-only breakfast promotion. We were greeted and seated promptly by friendly staff. Our server Mercedes provided excellent service from ordering to our leaving. Great value with the Tuesday breakfast specials (while the promotion is on). For these combined reasons, an overall excellent rating deserved.

Food was of an above average quality. Service not so much. We ordered salads and appetizers with our supper. Appetizers hardly arrive at table before salads arrive. Next, far too quickly, comes the main meals. The place was not overly packed or hurried, not sure why the bum rush on service. I find this form of service to be more... More

We had a twenty minute wait to get in service was very slow we were seated outside of the cafe by the buffet so sometimes it was a long time till we would see our waitress . The food was not fresh you could tell it had been frozen and fried . Not worth the money we paid .

maybe i ordered the wrong thing. the hollandaise sauce was heavy(greasy) and tasteless. the hash browns overwhelmed the plate, i think maybe they were hoping i won't notice the of good food with the extra potatoes. and super slow although they took our order it was 25 minutes before the food arrived; which in my book is a long time....

Looking for a good meal without a over priced buffet? The Red River Cafe is the one. The Cajun chicken and the Chicken fried steak hit the spot . Good service and very tasty . Two of us where very impressed , we both took left overs home for lunch for the next day.

The service was actually pretty good, the breakfast typical, but the atmosphere suggested the place was dumpy-- and I don't mean the architecture or the facility. It was like this-- I counted 16 tables in the restaurant when we arrived Sunday morning. The host was going to lead us to a table, and he actually said something like "I can't... More
