The food is very good (need to work on the desserts). Staff is excellent! Second to none. I like the overall feeling of the place from the staff to the food to the place.

We had a buffet. First, we were unaware when we made reservations that it was buffet only. The beef was raw in center, the shrimp was over cooked, salad was not fresh and desserts looked more like a pot luck of desserts brought from home - not tasty either. The most unbelievable issue was the $29.99 price even for children. Was definitely not worth that.

The Mother’s Day buffet was great, but we were seated in the back room with two families with small children. I’m pretty tolerant of child noises, but the noise definitely detracted from the meal. More sound absorbing fabrics are needed in that space. The main dining room was much quieter.

Food has went downhill. Brunch used to be quality food for cheap. The buffet food was stale, cold, and hard. The omelette station was appealing, but my omelette was burnt. My children had a waffle made that was not cooked and wet in the middle. The dessert station used to have fresh baked treats. It is basically just pudding and cookies now.

It was our first time experiencing brunch here and not sure we would do it again. The bottomless mimosas and bloody mary’s Are fantastic but the food just was okay. They have lots to choose from, omelette bar, fresh waffles, eggs benedict not cooked well, roasted potatoes were cold and bland, the chocolate chip french toast my kids loved as well as the fruit.

It’s not bad just not sure if breakfast is their thing. We prefer their dinner for the the taste of food.

We just loved this place from the minute we walked in we were pleasantly greeted and sat immediately. We went for their amazing Easter Brunch which was just delish!
Everyone was delightful. Brendan’s attention to us was just perfect! Highly recommend the Red Cedar Grille for any occasion especially brunch. We intend to go back for dinner!

The food was delicious! It was my parents' anniversary and they thoroughly enjoyed their meals. My father had a seafood ravioli special. Two of us had the brisket entree and one had the pulled pork entree. All of us were happy with our meals and the additional soups and salads we ordered. The bar makes a great old-fashioned too!

The menu was impressive and the food fantastic! Service was very friendly and attentive it just took a very long time to get our food. We got there at 6:30 and left after 9. Not the best place to go with young kids for that reason. But NOT a reason not to go! The food was worth the wait. I just won’t bring the kids next time.

This place is a hidden gem! We have been there twice and enjoyed everything we ordered. This time my husband had the special which was a veal chop. The presentation, along with the taste was 5 star. Very good value for the portion size. Days later he is still talking about it. I had the crab cake BLT. The crab cake was larger than expected (probably could have charged more for that portion size). The only down side was that the bacon could have been cooked longer. My daughter couldn’t wait for the peanut butter moose pie. She has been comparing every other peanut butter dessert since the last time we were there and they have all fallen short. Huge portion too!

Been here a few times and usually it’s been good. Last trip was a little rough - not all meals coming out at the same time, and identical orders appearing completely different on the plate. Maybe they were having an off-day...

We had dinner in the back room with a group of good friends. Our server was charming and efficient, with a good sense of humor. We were never rushed, even though we stayed a long time. Several of us ordered the special soup, which was delicious, along with our dinners or sandwiches. Lots of interesting comfort food choices. Portions were large enough for doggy bags. The only negative point was that the bar was out of several beers on the menu, so some of us had to take a 2nd or 3rd choice. I recommend the Red Cedar as a great place to meet up with friends for lunch or dinner.

We found this place just by chance - because we needed last minute Saturday night reservations for 9. We reviewed the menu on line and all 9 of us agreed to try it. When we arrived, our table was ready and I was a bit surprised that it was not busier. Our waitress, Sky, could not have been friendlier, more accommodating, and more skilled. She met our needs including separate checks without losing a beat. Everyone got something different and we tasted one another's dishes. Very good food and a creative menu with things you don't find just anywhere. My wife, who does not like cream sauces, requested that the cream be left out of her pasta dish. The chef came to the table said he couldn't just leave out the cream. He offered to make a couple of other sauces (not on the menu) for her pasta. She chose one and was not disappointed. We had a very enjoyable time and felt well cared for and satiated when we left. Too bad we don't live closer. A return trip is called for.

A main point of the Sunday brunch is an omelet station. They had a young teen at the omelet station preparing omelettes and waffles. It was clear he had no experience and his customer interaction was poor. Shame on management for putting him in a position where he lacked the skill and customer service.
