Diner Reviews
  • " Full disclosure: we visited for dinner on a Sunday as our anniversary was the next day and family schedules would not cooperate. Therefore, it was quite a slow evening with less than 10 tables active the entire time. I say "bumpy" quite intentionally, as my chair was bumped-into by nearly every staff member who walked by and repeatedly by two or three. The table behind me was empty, so navigating through the patio should not be difficult. Worse still: not once did anyone apologize, say "excuse me" or acknowledge in any way that they were banging into me and my seat. The food did not disappoint, the wines were very nice, and the staff were aware that we were celebrating our anniversary as I noted when making the reservation."

  • "This was the 2nd time we ate at Red's. Both were very enjoyable. The menu has a good deal of variety. The lobster paella was fabulous. Our server was a little late in showing up at our table and then was a little too attentive. We would like to see more affordable wines on the wine list."

  • "Brought a friend from AZ who absolutely loved her lunch experience ...unfortunately it was too cool for her outside but I love eating out there since I'm used to MI!. I had the beet salad...suggestions: 1. Serve in much larger bowl to make it easier to eat. 2. Put the beets on TOP....mine were bottom and since salad in such asmall bowl could not find the beets till ate all the greens! Otherwise a lovely time."

  • "Fabulous anniversary dinner at Reds on the river. Hubby had his favorites, firecracker shrimp for appetizer and scallops for entree. I had my favorite, Mahi Mahi with forbidden black rice and broccoli paired with a fine wine. To finish we indulged in his and hers chocolate mousse. In our estimation it doesn't get much better than that, with Ryan as our server for the evening it was perfect. So thank you once again Red's for making another meal memorable Tom and Leslie"

  • "First things first. The food was excellent! I had the Mahi Mahi and it was both delicious and well presented. Packed dining area but what do you expect on a Saturday night. Service was a little slow but more than likely simply due to the volume of patrons they had to deal with during the evening. Bonus, you can fly fish just down the hill if you're so inclined. lol Kinda wish my date was as nice as the food but....."

  • "I decided to take a first date to this restaurant. To this restaurant I now have the love of my life. not only did it have a beautiful scenic view.I couldn't have asked for a better waiter worked with us very well.the food was exquisite, and extremely satisfying. it was truly a great way to impress my first date, not that I needed help lol, but it was the icing on the cake. I highly recommend any couple get a table overlooking the river just at dusk on a beautiful evening. this is my new favorite place."

  • "We made the trip from East Lansing for an outdoor dining experience on a beautiful evening. It was our first time at Red's. It didn't disappoint. We had a lovely evening. The sea bass was excellent!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Red's is very nice. The service and food quality is great. It is a little pricey but worth it if you eat outside by the river"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We visited Red's on the River for our anniversary and weren't disappointed. We arrived and were seated promptly (we did have a reservation) and chose to sit outside. Normally, I hate sitting outside because of bugs and things but they must have sprayed or treated the area because there were no mosquitos around and we were right on the river! I was quite surprised. The food was delicious. I had a steak filet and my wife had the mahi mahi. It is a little on the pricey side, but for a special occasion it is a great place to go!"

  • "I used to go there to order the filet which is outstanding. Then I discovered the hamburger. The best burger in town and all around, by far. Maybe next time, the filet. Or the burger? :) Such a great debate/decision!"

  • "Dinner with friends at Reds was A+ all the way around, definitely worth the drive from Grand Rapids. Service was prompt, courteous, and friendly and our food was out of this world delicious. I would highly recommend the halibut - - so good! You will not be disappointed."

  • "Great food at a wonderful location. Extensive menu and decent wine list. I would recommend the Grouper. Parking can be a problem, but they sometimes offer complementary valet service. "

  • "This was our first time to Red's, and done so based on a recommendation. We were very happy with the overall experience. The French Onion soup and Chowder were delicious, and both our steaks were cooked to perfection. They could work on their seasoning for the meats but it's not a Chop House/Ruth's Chris kind of steakhouse and I wasn't expecting it. Overall, a nice experience, good food, well poured cocktails, and perfect ambience for an evening meal outdoors. "

  • "We visited Reds on the River for our 25th Anniversary and had a great dinner (Cherry Chicken, salad, and desert) with our son back home from college. Had a great time would definitely recommend you try this restaurant."

  • "Way overpriced :/ This is the second time we've tried Reds and felt the same way. Steaks weren't properly cooked and tasted bland. Service was wonderful but we won't be back."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "4 of us dined on Sat night. Instead of getting what we usually do, 3 of us tried something new. 2 of us had skirt steak while another tried chicken. The 4th went for the Delmonico...their usual choice. We would all try each again. Excellent!"

  • "We loved Red's! We sat outside next to the river. It is set in a beautiful little town. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere relaxing with a wonderful view. My husband and I were visiting from San Antonio, but we have allready recommended this restaurants to some local friends."

  • "We love Reds! Whenever we are on the west side of the state, we make a point to go there. Beautiful setting...wonderful, interesting food."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Very good food, great staff, but very expensive. It was quite cold out, so we did not experience the view of the river by eating outside. We would recommend as a special occasion establishment. There was value there. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves."

  • "My wife and I used to love Reds. We've been there dozens of times in the past. We just went this past weekend and I noted a few things: the hosting and wait staff have declined in training/attitude, the menu portions seem smaller but more expensive, and the parking during events is impossible. The harsh winter damaged the awning on the deck, which shielded diners from the sun. Not the restaurant's fault, but we were sat directly in the sun by the window and had no option to move when it was apparent this would become very uncomfortable. Our waitress was inattentive, and we noted several other tables (who were seated after us) got bread while we were told the kitchen was "out". My & I spent > $100 for 2 small meals + no dessert. Disappointed"
