I come to Chetek every year to fish. Never miss a chance to eat at Reds'. Really enjoy the outdoor bar and dining area. It's enclosed so the weather is not much of a factor. You can park your boat right out in front. My favorite is the chicken fajita wrap with their home made chips. They have a large... More

The food here is ok, not the best and not the worst in Chetek. The restaurant has never been very busy when we are there. It does have a dock if you want to boat in. Can't really say much more as the place is pretty unremarkable and unmemorable.

Had a great evening meal at Red's. We had a wonderful server, and all our steaks were tasty. Great place to park your boat and eat.

We made 3 trips to this location during our week long stay in Chetek (twice for the bar, once for the restaurant). It's a easy drive or boat up location, and there's a nice little grassy area outside for people with pets to hang (only exception is you can't have your adult beverage out there!). The tiki patio is nice,... More

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.
