Seems that they are always able to produce a good to great experience even when they are busy -- Food is always good and service is top notch but that might be because we have been customers since they nopened and we know most of the old time staff.

Sad to say I am normally a Sonic or McDonalds burger guy. However, when we have time to go out for dinner Red Robin is the burger place for us. Food is great and service is outstanding.

The place was clean, the servers were quick and the meal was served hot.... The menu had a great variety of offerings....the food was tasty.... the meal was large enough that they have to-go boxes ready for the customers and several took advantage of this......the milk-shakes and onion ring were great...

My only complaint would be that the bottomless fries were not bottomless on the day we went. Now, the reason for that was one of the fryers in the kitchen went out that day. It didn't help that we went during lunchtime on a Saturday. However, if that hadn't been the case, I would've given 5 stars. Our server was... More

Met the Gaughran's on a Saturday night for supper. Oh my gosh, I forgot how "active" this place can be - and how long one must wait in order to get to the experience. The place is nice but the circumstance really tests ones server...

If you like burgers and endless fries, this is your place. Many different burgers are offered. The fries are more like steak fries and are endless (free refills) with several types of dipping sauces.

There is nothing wrong with this Red Robin, but that is not reason enough to continue to dine here. We decided burgers sounded good and haven't been to RR in awhile. It will be awhile before we come back. Service was average and the place seemed messy and sticky. The drinks were way over-priced and not refilled in a timely... More

We enjoyed our burgers. My wife enjoyed the option to have broccoli instead of fries. The onion ring tower was great! The restaurant is set back from the road and there is no sign at the entrance. We ended up driving through several parking lots to get to it.

Always busy but generally good service and great food. Over time have tried quite a variety from the menu and never had anything that I didn't like. Bottomless fries are good. Burgers can be made "petite" if you ask and will take about $1 off the price. Loud though-not a place for a romantic anniversary dinner.

We were going to a hockey game, so we thought we'd get a burger first. The parking lot is not big enough for the are and is very tight. It was a typical Red Robin inside, but still nice & clean. We were seated right away and the server was quick at first too. After our orders were taken, we... More
