We had a great meal and cannot wait to go back. We used a great coupon and saved money.
We have been dining at the Red Lion since they opened in the small pub behind the current Science Hill dining room a few years ago. This is one of those exceptional places that is making a mark on the community and becoming a landmark destination. The recent updates to this historic property are brining it back to life, while preserving the beauty of the past. It’s like stepping back in time into an English establishment with artisan food and drinks. I can’t wait for the cigar bar to open!
Very impressed with the Red Lion. Great atmosphere would recommend everyone give it a try. We will be back.
Delicious food and great atmosphere. It is a family favorite!
Delishious food, polite and knowledgeable staff. Food was amazing and perfectly priced for the dish. Home town atmosphere.
Lovely environment and thensalm0n was very good.
Our friends and I had a wonderful dinner at the Red Lion. The cocktails were creative, dinner was fabulous. We all loved the atmosphere of the restaurant….very cool place.
This was our first visit but it definitely won’t be the last. The building itself is beautiful and has so much history. The bar has an incredible bourbon list and delicious cocktails. Our server was super sweet and attentive, she gave us great recommendations and the food was just amazing. We had the fillet medallions and the short ribs with risotto, it was literally melt in your mouth tender! This definitely a must for great dinner experience!!
Food was good and service was good. We’ve been several times and this was one our better experiences
Beautiful taste and delicious food-even at lunchtime. Get the hot brown and bourbon I've cream over a piece of Derby pie! Quality coffee too. Fried pimento cheese grits were a unique but tasty offering.
Thanks to Hayden for professional yet fun table service.
We had a wonderful experience at The Red Lion. Science Hill is a beautiful historic building and we enjoyed dining there. We can't wait to go back and plan to bring my in-laws next time they're in town. Food and service was great.
Loved all the people who worked there, so very friendly!
Was there for NYE with a party of eight. Everyone within the party felt the same way, we wish the limited menu was advertised in advance. We would not have kept reservations. Some of the party does not like seafood, limited menu had items listed that was not to everyone’s liking. Maybe something simple as a choice with each course would have been nice. Simple salad instead of the kimchi/collard green I’m course two, for example.
Total meal with two drinks and the tip included was $196.00.
I scheduled my family for a New Years Eve dinner (kids are adults, but one has special needs). I was unaware that there was a fixed menu and had I known the menu, I would’ve rescheduled because I knew my son (with special needs) wouldn’t like anything on the menu. I explained this to our server, Charlie, and she sent over the owner who explained that the restaurant was closing for the winter after New Years and they didn’t have much to work with in the kitchen, but said she’d go see what might be available. She said they could do a chicken sandwich and cheese grits, which was perfect! My son was so happy and we were too, knowing we could all enjoy a good meal. The owner was extremely pleasant and accommodating and turned what could’ve been a disappointing dinner into a wonderful evening. We will be back this spring, on an evening when they have their regular menu, and looking forward to another great meal!
Amazing dining experience. Wait staff was very accommodating to my food prohibitions, bar tender squeezed some fresh juice upon request and manager checked in on us. I ended up buying a gift card for a local family.
Great food and excellent service!
Had a wonderful time, and the food/service was excellent!
The food was very good and my friend and I had a delightful time.
Dear God! Please have your wait staff mask up! And be mindful of social distancing. Our waiter was lovely except he got so close to my face and was maskless, I nearly had a heart attack ! And, I’m vaccinated but I don’t know that his safety isn’t jeapordized! It’s not a private decision. It’s public health!
Great food! Been here several times, haven’t had anything we didn’t like. Filet is awesome , hot was yummy . The chocolate martini was excellent and the flourless chocolate tort with bourbon ice cream is incredible. Service is always good,
We loved it! The location is really cool and we enjoyed our English style fry ups on Boxing Day.
Excellent food and service. Had the pan fried flounder.
The food was delish. Service was good. Will definitely go back!
We have been three times and I have had something different each time and it has been amazing!! Love this place!
A friend and I chose the Red Lion to celebrate our Christmas. She had the burger. I had the shrimp and grits. Outstanding as always!! Our server was wonderful. Kept our drinks full and asked us often during dinner if we needed anything.
The Red Lion is one of my very favorite places to dine.
It never disappoints!!!
The wait staff was not very accommodating or helpful. My food was completely wrong, the wait staff did not offer to replace it and told me they were going to take it off the bill -they did not. The food was mediocre for the price.
Filet Medallions were excellent. Cold Beer and excellent service as always.
We very much enjoyed our lunch at The Red Lion. Food was very good; service and ambiance great!
The food was delicious. I had one of the best hot Browns that I have ever had. Like most restaurants today, they were short staffed so a bar tender was our server. He did a fine job but he needs to lose the baseball cap worn backwards, doesn’t go with the general ambience of the restaurant and the appearance of the rest of the serving staff. The GM was delightful and very hands on with the whole dining experience. Will definitely be back again.
Beautiful inside and delicious! Had a wonderful evening!
Everything was delicious! Drinks were outstanding and the food was amazing. No leftovers to take home.
What a joy! The service, food, atmosphere were all perfect! Highly recommend the experience!
Great food, wonderful service. The ambiance is very formal but also comfortable.
Great meal and service. We had a reservation for 7 people at 7pm. We arrived a little early but did not get seated until 7:15.
Appetizers were excellent. Food was good. Service good. Ambience only average.
I thought this would be nice place to go for holiday dinner. Ambiance was very nice. I wish it had more of a steak option. It went from filet medallions at $32 to a 24 oz tomahawk steak for $70. Pasta and burgers were good though. Staff was great.
Very nice staff, wonderful surroundings and food!
Shepherds Pie delish. Short Rib and Risotta so juicy and tender!
Nice little place to try! Food was tasty and staff was nice.
Great ambiance. Food was delicious from hearty to healthy.
