Wow. I guess, I apologize for my father and I being friendly with our customers. If I talked to you to much, I was mistaken.

Four of us dined here recently on a Sunday afternoon and the food was outstanding. I can definitely say it was some of the best German food I've ever had. It puts to shame the German food I have to deal with during winter months...More

I had not been here for quite a while and ordered a dish that USED to be good, the seafood combo plate called Fritto Misto, with cod, a couple of shrimp, and calamari. It was greasy, the breading was awful, and the fish was sour....More

Bob, I am so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the Frito Misto the other night. You never should have had something that wasn't right. Honestly I would have wanted to know about it that night as soon as you noticed you didn't like...More

I would not say it is 100% German cuisine, but there are a few German authentic dishes on the menu. We were a party of 5 and I did make a reservation because it was a Saturday night, but it was not necessary. It was...More

The atmosphere was fun, and the pictures a kick. My veal was a bit tough, but my husband liked his steak.

Description
Redlefsen's is a German - American Restaurant which celebrates it's German heritage while allowing a percentage of its menu to satisfy other worldly palates. The porcelain beer towers pour German drafts in proper glassware, including das boot. The schnitzels and sauerbraten are as authentic as if you were in Bavaria. But if someone in your group must have calamari, Redlefsen's will be able to provide one of the best in the State.
