We have gone here for years for the wing ding. Don't think we will go back. We had reservations, were on time and our order was taken in a timely manner . It went down hill from there, we waited over an hour for chicken wings on cold fries. We got the bill and to go boxes at the same... More

We were in Chetek in November and the Packers game wasn't on our cable (we got the Vikings instead!) so we went out to Red's to watch. Lots of Packers fans there, with giveaways at breaks and Jello shots when the Packers scored. At halftime, they put out spaghetti and meatballs, which didn't last long so we had a burger... More

Horrible service at the Bar. Bartenders only care about their friend. Wait forever to get a drink. Sat at the bar and watched a bartender sit and talk to her friends the hole time while I waited. Talked to the manager. Was told if I didn't like the service I could go elsewhere

We attended a family lunch following a funeral. Red's served about 75 of us and did a great job. There were two kinds of chicken (broasted and baked) and lots of sides. Everyone at our table of 15 was very satisfied with the quality of the food and the service.

We stop by Red's almost every weekend and have had a great experience every time. They have a large outdoor area for when its nice out and typically have entertainment every weekend.

Your Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet was horrible! We had dinner reservations for 3:30 pm for nine. We received our drinks and a gravy boat. As we headed to the salad bar at 3.45 pm, staff members were lighting the chafing dishes. The salad bar was not stocked the best, but made due with what was available. The soup was cold. Went...

My husband and I were pontooning around the lakes in Chetek, and although we have had not so good service and food in the past, we decided to stop for just an appetizer at the bar. Glad we did- maybe that is the way to go here. Joshua the bartender was very friendly and attentive. We had the Portabella mushroom... More

Stopped after returning from an Auction. Ate outside and the area needs some maintenance if you are expecting a formal mean but it was a nice informal place with very good food, with a beachy setting. will come back

We decided to try Reds instead of our usual restaurant because it always seemed to be busy. But it's bar crowd that makes the place look busy. The 6 of us ordered supper no one was impressed. I had a taco salad, which are not hard to make, and it was the first taco salad that I hadn't finished it... More
