Bottom line: Red's prepared my burger exactly how I ordered it - medium rare with a sunny side up egg on it! It is so rare today to have a burger come out the way you order it!! Good job Red's! The wait staff was great. The atmosphere was modern and fun. We will be back!!

We came here for lunch on a warm early March Saturday. Wait staff were great; friendly and got us seated and served quite efficiently. I had a Surly Furious on draft that was delicious and wished I had more time and a bigger liver to try more beers. Their list of beers is long and impressive . Our lunch was... More

Met a client for lunch right at noon. Was busy but we were seated right away. Had good service. Our food was wonderful . Big half of salad with lots of goodies in it. Needed 2 dressings for that big of salad.Half of club was huge. Lots of meat. The Flatbread was also good. Would definitely go back.

Pros: Food decent, offered half versions at lunch, lots of tvs, friendly staff, get company. ( that I was with). Great pizza. CONS: Too much sodium in food, doesn't offer the half versions for dinner, tables too close, bathroom has sewage smell that was unpleasant. The french fries taste like fish.

Once again had a great lunch at Red's. I like the fairly wide selection of the menu including enough gluten free options to make me happy, the friendly wait staff, and the casual ambiance. Busy but not loud so possible to have a good conversation!

Always good food, have been here several times, never disappointed. Wait staff and host/hostess have always been good. When asked about each beer on tap, if they do not have an answer about the flavor (craft beers) they ask another that does, or bring a sample for tasting. Will most definitely be back.

Huge craft beer list and the food was excellent. I had a flatbread and was impressed. The biscuits and gravy also looked phenomenal.

If you come to North Liberty, you have to try Red's. The food is always amazing. They even offer a vegan menu! We always enjoy coming to Red's!

I visited with my wife, son, sister, and brother-in-law. My sister and BiL are locals and dine here frequently and I can understand why after having visited. It's a friendly, tastefully decorated pub. The 2 for 1 beers at happy hour is an obvious draw, particularly since they have a lot of options. They are a bit heavy on the... More
