The food was served buffet style with lots of options to accommodate many diets - the owner and staff was super friendly and we had an entire room to ourselves. Right on the water!

One of our favorite family-run local restaurants. Nice variety, including authentic German food, if you enjoy tat type of food. There are many other delicious dishes to try that are American including seafood. Some of our favorite are the Calamari schnitzel and the veal schnitzel....More

Always clean, great service and good food choices. Parking can be a bit of a problem, but have been able to find a spot on a nice Sunday in Bristol with patience.

Great location in Bristol, Rhode Island, right across from a lovely park on the bay. The restaurant is decorated very nicely with a German theme, and features many varieties of beers. We chose a sampler with five different beers, and enjoyed tasting the varied distinctive...More

What a great place. German food and drinks with a Rhode Island twist in the menu. If you are looking for a great meal and a cold beer, here is your place.

Description
Redlefsen's is a German - American Restaurant which celebrates it's German heritage while allowing a percentage of its menu to satisfy other worldly palates. The porcelain beer towers pour German drafts in proper glassware, including das boot. The schnitzels and sauerbraten are as authentic as if you were in Bavaria. But if someone in your group must have calamari, Redlefsen's will be able to provide one of the best in the State.
