All four of us had the pan fried walleye. It was savory and excellent!!!! We also had the apple crumble and pumpkin creme brûlée. We always enjoy dining at The Red Oaks!

Everything was great - first indoor dining experience since COVID , and we chose Red Oak with confidence that safety measures were in place . 👍🏻👍🏻
Only suggestion is that lighting be lowered a little bit to improve ambience . We will be back .

Having heard about the restaurant from a friend, who has good taste, we were looking forward to a lovely dining experience. Our expectations were fulfilled. The food was perfect. The ambiance was quaint, and our server was friendly. My only complaint is that the drink prices seemed overly high, but since we were celebrating my 60th birthday, we didn't care too much in the end.

Red Oak is our absolute “go to” for any occasion. The food is always impeccably prepared and the service is fabulous. We never feel rushed. Thanks to the current pandemic, we have consciously decided that when we do eat out, we want it to be really good and really memorable. Red Oak always fits that description.

We always enjoy the seasonal selections and great drinks at the Red Oak. This trip was just as awesome as the last time. If you are willing to pay a bit of a premium to ensure excellent food and good wages for your service, then give it a try.

The food was very delicious. I wasn’t impressed with the selection or prices though. I ordered the special which included 4 scallops over a bed of egg noodles with a garlic sauce and a few cherry tomatoes. It was $32 which didn't include a soup or salad! The tip was automatically added to the bill for a living wage which is understandable. The waitress was not knowledgeable about the cocktails on the menu. We reserved a table and then others just walked in and wore jeans and did not reserve a table. They had terrible manners and were seated near us on our first date in 6 months. So disgusting. The ambiance could be improved for the price we payed for the food. Especially in season vegetables and inexpensive pasta. I would go back but be more careful what I ordered that it was worth the price.

Dined outside and had area to ourselves. Use of wide area mosquito repellent or zappers would have been nice. Server masks loose fitting.
Chicken breast, a vegan option and salads were good. The insects sent us elsewhere for coffee and dessert.

It was our first time there. The chicken was good,the pork belly balls had hardly any pork, they are more like rice balls with little pieces of pork,the waitress was good,but it took over an hour to get our food! We were ready to just pay for our drinks and leave when the waitress.came.and told us our food was ready to come out. They did take off one of the meals and our drinks for the wait and said this was very unusual to have this happen so we will give them another try some other time because it does seem.like they genuinely wanted us to come.back. The ambiance was very nice,but I feel the prices are a bit high.

We love the Red Oak! Food and drinks are always amazing! We went on a night where it was a little under staffed so things took a little bit longer than normal and could tell the staff was frazzled but other than that we will be back!

We sat outside on the patio. It was very nice, with social distancing most definitely in place. The wait for our meal was a bit longer than expected and the wine list was VERY limited. We actually had to ask if they had other wines (they did). The food was very good, as was the service. We will be back.
