Everyone we talked with was very friendly and our server was attentive without bugging. Our food was good. I had the smoked chicken and apple salad. I’ve had it a couple times before and this time it wasn’t quite as good. Not enough dressing but at least it wasn’t swimming in it like some places and they added dill to it which didn’t pair well with the apples. All in all I really like this restaurant and am sure we’ll be back

Service was a little slower than usual but we still think they have the best outdoor setup around the Eastside

Our meal was perfect. Really cool setting, fantastic food/drinks, and great service. We had been here before and knew to order the fish and chips. The meat and cheeseboard was also good.

Our table was ready for us when we got there and they fulfilled our reservation immediately.

If you are driving a classic car, beware of the speed bump in the parking lot!

We visited Red Crown on 7/19. Food was delicious. We ordered the sampler for 2 and still had leftovers. Staff is very friendly. It was after a rainstorm so we were unable to sit on the patio but the dining area was just fine. We’ll definitely go again.

Second time here, good American restaurant. The wings were surprisingly awesome! Fried to a crisp but not a single drop of grease or any greasy feeling! The calamari was delicious, wide strips with capers and tomatoes instead of the typical circles. The salads were good and the service was outstanding, the team accommodated every request!

The barbecue was really excellent. They could use more IPA and dark beer choices on their draft beer menu. The burnt brisket ends were our favorite

Waitress was not as friendly, felt like she was in a rush while it wasn’t that busy. Food is overpriced. Not bad food. Just meh. Would love a neighborhood restaurant make it more affordable.

Made a reservation and our table was ready when we walked in. We had walked in through the bar door and not the main door. Cute bar area! Once we were seated, we were greeted by our server who was very professional and friendly. She gave us a moment to look over the drink menu, explained the specials and then asked us if about a drink order, she was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menus. Everything was so relaxing and the pulled pork was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful Mother’s Day.

The restaurant ok. The wait staff wasn't very attentive once we didn't order a pricey drink. I had the chicken waffles. The waffle portion was good, the chicken was way overcooked. stringy and chewy. Disappointing. They have better menu items. They used to do the chicken waffles differently and they were much better.

We had the smoked combo for two. All of the flavors were very good. Textures, however, just missed on several components. The sauced ribs were a bit too chewy, the unsauced a bit too soft. Really liked the brisket, though some would say that it was a little past al dente.

Overall, I'll be back, and would recommend you try Red Crown.

Food is ok but service is also just ok. Noise level is a huge detractor. Small, crowded room with very close tables make it difficult to carry on a conversation. We will not be in a hurry to return.

Had reservation, they seated us promptly. Service was feisty, but good & fun. Food was appreciated by all in our party... my Turkey burger was a bit spicier than expected, but very good. Prices were reasonable for the fare.

Excellent to Outstanding experience at 3:30PM on a Saturday afternoon. These folks are doing everything right. I wish we had a place like this in our Ann Arbor neighborhood. The kitchen performance was nearly flawless. Wonderful food options, great flavors and attention to details. Service was very pleasant and attentive.

The service was spotty. We had a wait person and a food delivery person. It took a long time to get service when two people were waiting on us. Also, the bean burger was like a hockey puck. Very dense, very thick, hard to cut and dry. The flavor was OK but couldn’t get past the other.
Other food was delicious! Amazing Alaskan black cod, delicious braised greens, excellent sautéed rapini, nice looking salads. Shrimp jambalaya looked fantastic too. We had seared scallops with bacon large down as an appetizer – perfect.

Waited to be seated for a table with my family, only 3 of us, no one acknowledged us whatsoever. The bartender made eye contact but said nothing. Waited for 15 minutes, a line was forming behind us as there was an event earlier in the evening right down the street and it seemed everyone thought it was a cute place for dinner. We finally walked out standing there for 15 and then they had the audacity to call me as to why I missed my reservation time.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend, so I had dinner at Red Crown before heading Downtown for the night. Parking was easy (small lot or cheap street meters). The menu was playful and had plenty of great options. I personally enjoyed the truffle fries, chicken and apple salad, and a local draft beer! The salad was under-dressed, but I enjoyed regardless. My mom raved about the okra also. It was a Tuesday evening, but the place was quiet and had plenty of room.

We had a great dinner at Red Crown. Our server was informative and attentive. The drinks lists seem to have something for everyone and we enjoyed our cocktails and beer. The cheese with the pretzels was amazing. We also had the burnt ends appetizer. They were more like hunks of meat than actual burnt ends I've had elsewhere, but I can't complain since they still tasted good. Our meals were very good, and the sides almost outshone the main dish.
It was kind of loud inside, especially since place wasn't packed when we were there. We thought they could use some sound deadening, but this isn't something that would keep us from coming back.
The patio looked large and comfortable, but it was so hot we ate inside. I'd like to come back and eat outside.

Food and ambiance are good. Have eaten there before. One caveat, I don’t like when the wait staff brings the bill barely after finishing eating. It makes you feel pushed out. No coffee, another drink, dessert?

Amazing. Always amazing. We recently relocated here from NY and had been so spoiled w/ abundant options for incredible food at every corner...and here is this gem...not too far from home. There is fusion all over the menu. I’m a vegan, so there are a great many options for me. Love love the black bean burger w/ Brussels sprout side. ❤️ A new favorite for certain...
