First visit to Red's, and he was there to run this quaint, but historic joint! We popped in for a refreshing brew and to enjoy the sunny outside seating. The selection of brews on tap were few but solid choices. The inside is very small,...More

Stopped here for my last meal while in town before flying out that afternoon. I ordered a double cheeseburger with fries and ate it on the back "patio." It was pretty good but a little too much mustard on my burger and the sourdough, although...More
