“Love this place!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

I love this bar, the staff, their Tequila Sensation, and especially their fish and chips! Great place to just sit back and relax by the river!

“Don't be fooled”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

My wife and I have driven by this restaurant many times and we wish we would have kept just driving by. We walked in to an empty restaurant and soon discovered why.
The food sounds good and is priced like a nice restaurant about $15 per plate ($20-25 for seafood and steak). But the food is not very good at all. I got the chicken fettuccine. The chicken was so dry I had to choke it down and the sauce was watery. My wife got the mixed seafood platter. The shrimp tasted like it had been boiled and then left on an overhot pan for too long. We didn't finish and didnt take home the leftovers.
The only redeeming factors were the view...almost every seat has a nice view of the river and the server was very friendly and entertaining. If you're staying at the red lion and have no other options for food we say go to bed early rather than eat here.

“Good”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Fast friendly service. Excellent food. Well presented. A little skimpy on portions on some items and over done on others.

“#AsteroidTweetup Fun”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

In honor of the asteroid passing by the earth a group of local Twitter users decided to schedule a Tweetup. Ripples prepared drink and food specials specifically for the event and with their usual Happy Hour specials there was something for everyone.

Wished they had a better craft beer selection to choose from, but the mixed drinks were a good substitute :)
