Went in a snowstorm, had great food and good quantities! excellent pizza, hard-to-find liver & onions, friendly service with full bar and beer by the pitcher. A Rangeley institution for many years!

Pizza is fast and delicious. There is a dining room, but we usually pick it up as take-out and bring it back to hotel when we stay in Rangeley. Priced very reasonably.

I like Take-out as well, and glad you did too. Thank you for choosing the Red Onion! More

Love this place. The atmosphere, staff and food are all great. The pizza is amazing, but other food items are also great. Their Apple crisp is also amazing. We eat here every time we go to Rangelely.

We've been taking the family to the Red Onion since 2003 even on the cold winter nights when we come up in December. It's our favorite family restaurant, great pizza and pasta. Sometimes you have to wait, but the staff has always been friendly and accommodating.

Everyone seems to recommend the Red Onion in Rangeley, but I can't figure out why. The food is not good at all, I didn't even bother taking home the leftover pizza because I knew no one would eat it. The owner is super nice, but unfortunatly the service from wait staff is terrible. When we ate there we were one... More

Poutine was frozen french fries with shredded cheese and canned gravy. Pizza was poorly made with hard dry crust. Never again.

Thank RuClav
redonionrangeley, Manager at Red Onion, responded to this review

Dear RuClav, I'm sorry you did not like our "non traditional" poutine, we don't claim to have hand cut fries, the shredded cheese is our own blend of pizza cheese and the gravy is certainly not out of the can. About the pizza, don't know what to tell you, our hand rolled dough is not your typical pan pizza. If... More
