My family and I loved this charming rural restaurant. The food was delicious. The cod and seafood risotto were awesome. The place was pretty busy considering it was Wednesday but it was well worth it.

We sat at the bar. Our bartender was fine - not overly friendly by any means, but he got the job done. The bread was really delicious. We also ordered french fries, which were tasty (they use peanut oil for frying), but not quite the authentic hand cut style i was hoping for. The ceasar salad was delish, one of... More

I made a reservation as they have quite the following, and I asked for a table in a warm location (it has been a problem in the past). Well, this time it was more than a problem, it was downright ridiculous. The three of us froze, and we were all dressed for below average indoor temperatures. A table that came... More

Visited the Red Onion this week after driving by it for the last couple years. Glad we did. We had a reservation (suggested) and we're seated upon our arrival about 10 minutes early. Host was friendly, waitress at table in a minute and the rustic but classy dining room was cozy with a bit of a buzz of noise and... More

Was there tonight for first time in a while. Much better experience than usual. No reservations and was seated immediately. Was served drinks immediately and very good bread for the table. Waitress was very good. Had the burger which was better than usual. Mushroom soup and spinach were good too. Overall better than past few visits. Glad.

We had never eaten here before and it was a great and wonderful surprise to see what we were missing. There was so much choice, and everything was prepared perfectly. Even the bread and butter were scrumptious. We were visiting from Italy, so good American food tasted really good. The fish and chips were really good--spectacular fish. The pierogies with... More

Let me start by saying the atmosphere, service and staff were amazing! The Hamburger Special was devine! I highly recommend this restaurant to able bodied individuals; unfortunately I am not Although marked Handicapped Parking; the space is non existent. The ramp led me to a door that was locked! The sign on the door pointed to a separate entrance which... More
