While I might describe their Original Redcoat Special Hamburger as frou-frou, because of the many options you have to customize it, Redcoat Tavern has become my favorite 'dressed up' burger joint. The parking can be a pain and the service can be slow, because the...More

I can't believe this was our first time at Red Coat Tavern! The food was incredible! The burgers are a half pound each and cooked to perfection. The onion rings are thickly battered and the best I've ever had. It was very busy and they...More

... large quantities served by hard-working employees. The fish and chips with coleslaw was perfectly prepared. One minor drawback - this is one of the noisiest places we've been to lately, and no music was required to achieve that result!

Described as a "foodie pub" the Red Coat lived up to expectations. Beer selection was great (though I wish there were more selections in tap), food was outstanding, and the service was very good. Really enjoyed my visit, and will be returning!!

Went there for dinner on July 21st and had a great meal. We had New England clam chowder, the mt. Vernon and perch, also had a burger and fries. The coleslaw was great also.

I won't waste your time. Looking a romantic lunch, this is your place! Craving an awesome burger, this is your place. Don't like a wedge salad or blue cheese dressing...you will like theirs. Atmosphere, food, full bar, beer selection and service all excellent!

Enjoyed the food and service as usual. The traditional Red Coat burger is moist and tasty. It can be a bit sloppy but so worth it. Ask for an extra napkin and dig in. The Caesar Salad was large enough to share 3 ways. The...More

I came for the burger but my wife talked me into trying the pot pie and let me say i wasn't disappointed. The service was great and the food was great too. Can't wait to come back and try something else

Yeah, you are going to hear a ton about the burgers here. And if you hear anything other than they are "amazing" or "wonderful" or "ginormous," then I would be totally surprised and suspect of that reviewer. Their burgers are definitely worth the price of...More

They don't take reservations, but they do a call ahead seating and all members need to be present when you arrive. There will still be a wait, but not as bad. I would suggest you call at least a hour in advance if you have... More
