I was on a visit to my home state and we decided to have lunch here one day. I was not impressed. My burger (I guess my fault as ordered well done) was very dry and almost inedible.I ate half because ti was ravenous. The...More

Ate there about 3 times. Nice place but each time seemed a little less great. The shrimp and grits had the tails on which was distracting.

We didn’t know what to expect at Red Bone. It was like entering another universe—a flashback in time—that offered intriguing Southern Fusion Cuisine. Quail and Grits? Yes! Fried quail wings draped over grits—a Culinary adventure with both crunch and creamy textures in the same dish!...More

Visited for lunch and service was extremely slow and hamburger bun was burnt when the order finally came after 40 minutes of waiting. Manager was apologetic in a condescending manner. We have eaten there a few times before and enjoyed;however. This visit left a bad...More

Lunch stop with huge portions. Food isn't much to look at but everyone's entrees were good. The atmosphere of an outdoor street setting that is indoors is a fun change from just a plain old booth set up. There's a little play area for kids...More
