    Pros : Good food, good selection. Cons: Noise level is very high. They took out the booths along the back, so we don't like to sit back there anymore---it's a bit less noisy there. Outdoor tables are nice but we won't sit outside because people smoke at those tables.

    We loved the brunch. Food was wonderful and we enjoyed some items that are not usually on a buffet in this price range. I especially enjoyed the crab and spinach benedict and the mussels. Service was friendly and attentive. Will go back again, maybe for a family celebration. Can't comment on the other menus, but brunch was terrific.

    Brunch at Red Cedar Grille is exceptional! While the buffet is not miles long, it certainly isn't filled with dried up, overcooked food. Everything is fresh and replenished regularly. I'll start with the buffet. Freshly made hummus and olive sun-dried tomato tampanades are delicious and perfectly seasoned. Not what you'd expect on a brunch buffet. The whitefish salad is probably the best I've ever had. Not salty and just delicious! I don't eat meat, so I skip some items. The mussels are exquisite...each one seasoned perfectly and loaded with flavor. But the Mayor of Omeletteville is the highlight of the brunch! He makes the best omelettes to order. Don't miss him or them. You shouldn't miss out on the homemade sticky buns; simply divine!

    My first visit to Red Cedar and I was impressed. The atmosphere is casual and not much different from when it was the Inn Flight for all those years, but the food is much, much better. It is obvious that the kitchen staff and head chef are cooking from scratch and preparing dishes to be savored. I will definitely return as I would like to try almost everything on the menu!

    Small friendly venue with a nice variety of hot and cold food choices. The ingredient selections for fresh made omelets were plentiful and the chef was extremely efficient. All of the staff were warm and welcoming. We will return to the Red Cedar Grille soon for the Sunday evening Surf and Turf special. Very enjoyable outing!

    Party of 9 for brunch on Sun., 7/6/14. We were extremely disappointed, arrived at 1 PM, quite a few dishes seemed to have scraps left, very tiny pancakes, burnt bacon, lukewarm sausage, very few mussels, dry salty salmon, greasy thumb prints on plates. The highlights, very personable chef making omelets and waffles, and they were great. Had to ask the server 3 times for the eggs benedict dishes. For the price of $15 pp, not worth it. Do yourself a favor, spend more, you get what you pay for.

    My husband spotted this place on a drive recently, and mentioned he wanted to try it out. We've been looking for 'our' restaurant--a place where we can go to have a date night and have good food and just enjoy each other's company. Well, Red Cedar Grille hit it out of the park! Everything is beautifully paneled in wood, and the seating is very comfortable. We were seated very quickly and approached for drink orders nearly as soon as we sat down. The food was amazing. We both had specials, he had the ribs and I had the balsamic reduction pizza, and both were absolutely phenomenal. We were checked on throughout the meal, and just had a great time. We'll definitely be making this our regular date night location!

    I took myself & 2 kids out to eat. I ordered the special & it was delicious - it was ravioli in a spinach cream sauce, yum! My dagter ordered the crab cake sandwich & I had a little taste of that as well, absolutely amazing. My other daughter ordered the chicken quesadillas, she didn't really are for the "different" ingredients, but I found them to fantastic when I ate them for lunch the next day. Overall, as usual - nice atmosphere & amazing food.

    We thoroughly enjoyed having brunch here; it was a good introduction to the restaurant. The food was good, and we will definitely give them a try for lunch/dinner sometime. The setup is a little odd as the restaurant doesn't have a lot of free space, so they have to fit the food into wherever they can. There wasn't much to choose from for children (I had hoped for breakfast cereals or oatmeal). Also, the waffle station (nestled in with the omelets) was very basic (you get just the waffle; there's butter on the dessert table, but that's it. No strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream etc. I asked our server for chocolate chips, which she accommodated. The omelet station attendant was fantastic - entertaining, enthusiastic & personable.

    First time based on OT good reviews? The Charitos family’s three generations of chefs, I was hopeful for a good local find. We ordered Apps, Saganaki and wings. The saganaki was greesy and burnt on the bottom. The wings were over cooked and barely had any wind sauce on them. We ordered a few Pizzas and a Chicken Penne dish. The Chicken penne was the star of the night. Smoked chicken was tender and flavorful. The pizzas had way too much cheese and sauce lacked in flavor. My wife had Keneth Square pizza and there was barely a small handful of mushrooms on the pizza.. Beers - good selection. The servers are slovenly looking folk. The waiter spilled a drink on floor and it remained on floor until we left. Sorry - not for us.. wont last

    Red Cedar Grille has a menu with different choices that are reasonably priced. All of the meals we have had there have been very good. On our recent visit, I had a smoked salmon salad that was excellent. My friend ordered one of the restaurant's pizza choices (I don't recall which one) and indicated that it was among the best he had ever tasted.

    The food was fantastic! We had a large group of ten and were seated right at our reservation time. We all had various menu choices from the mothers day specials with the surf n turf (which both my parents loved), I had the pesto ravioli which was to die for, my husband had the double fisted burger with homemade fries..amazing and most everyone else had brunch which was equally as great. The desserts were HUGE and delicious...the cookie is a must. We cant wait to go back!

    Everyone can find something to eat here. This place continues to try and find itself. Hoping it will trend towards good food as a focus and not the bar and kareoke and trivia that ended driving us out. Patient for families with young children, the waitstaff was courteous and accommodating. This is a good place to get reasonable faire with some creative options.

    We went for dinner on Saturday night around 6:00. The food was very good (except the asparagus), and the service was great. Our waitress was very accommdating and quite pleasant. We were seated as soon as we arrived, so it was nice not having to wait. It was a bit noisy because it was crowded, but that wouldn't deter me from going again. Am hoping to go again and try the outdoor seating---when the weather is warmer.
