They are known for their burgers and that is what I had... it was amazing. One of the best burgers I have had in a long time. Definitely a must try if you like a good burger and a cold beer.

I am not a huge burger eater but this burger was amazing. I ordered a special meat - Piedmontese - because the local person I was with swore I had to try it. I am up to most foods at least once - so order...More

I wish they would update this location. Parking sucks——lots of pot holes. Service was ok but food came out cold had to send back. Just not enough room by bar area. Tables so close together and people standing at bar watching you eat

The clam chowder and any of the burgers are just delicious! Great selection of craft beers. We always order the onion rings!

Dark ambience with dim lights and English Tavern vibe. I had their burger & split Onion rings w/a friend & they both were very good. Not cheap but not too pricey either.

Whenever I'm visiting in town we call in an order to go for burgers (the rest of their food is also amazing). They are a busy spot for a reason, and we are always greeted warmly and our orders are ready to go no matter...More

From beginning to end the experience we had was awesome. We had a big party, so it was a bit of a waiting time. However, the hostess kept us informed on wait time. The food was delicious not to mentioned the drinks were as well.

Noisy, crowded, casual, pub and family feel, and a great food and beer selection. I have been going there for years and now I take my family (all over 21). I remember it from decades ago and it has not changed much. They are known...More

Everything and everyone was great! Great food choices that had everything a family could want. It's always busy so plan on a little wait, but you can call ahead 1/2 hour for seating.

Overall, this was a "tough to live up to the hype" situation for us. Lots of locals had raved about Red Coat to us for years. I think the "old English" vibe is part of the charm for some folks, or perhaps some nostalgia... but...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
