We visited Red's on a rainy evening, so chose to carry our food back to the hotel with us instead of eating there. The wait while our order was being prepared was lots of fun as the monitor in the waiting room was airing "Happy...More

Restaurant seating is in a converted school bus. Burgers were excellent and seems to be where the locals go. Place your order at the kitchen window then seat yourself on the bus. Didn't have one but the shakes looked awesome.

We came here, not quite sure what to expect. One thing to note, they only take cash. We ended up having to walk to the bank nearby before we ordered, and the food isn't cheap. But for both me and my friend, it was very...More

We enjoyed our garlic burger, but wow, you never saw so much garlic! We tried the veggie burger on our second visit, which was also good. Great milkshakes and fries, both regular and sweet potato. Friendly service. Where else do you eat on a school...More

Couldn't finish my burger and fries, there was so much of it. Made a great snack for later. Food is made to order, and you can dine outside or on the bus. Cash only.

The kitchen is in an old school bus and the eating is in another school bus or outdoors. Mainly a burger place. Pricey burgers that are okay. The service from time of order to delivery is very long. I guess this is a fine place...More

My adult daughter, her friend, and I ate at Red's when we visited Seward. We love that place! It was fun to order, fun to eat in the renovated school bus, fun to listen to the music and visit with the other customers--and the food...More

We were looking for meaty hamburger in Seward and I found it in Red's Burgers menu choice of a 1/3 lb Mushroom Swiss burger. I was so tired of the skinny meat patties that we have been served at other places. Red's cooks up a...More

I wish I had decided to eat dinner in town., where the better food was. Being on the waterfront did not make up for the mediocre food. I wish i had eaten at the Cookery or Seward Brewing Company.

I think they close at 8:00. You might have to wait for your food depending how many other people are there but then you could always eat on your bus back to anchorage. We probably waited about 20 mins or so but there were... More
