Very cozy atmosphere. Looking forward to visiting again in the summer to sit on the patio. Brisket I ordered was very good. Nice selection of beers, both draft and bottle.

Service was painfully slow. Had to ask for waitress several times throughout the dining experience. Felt ignored the entire time we were there. Won't return.

What a charming find for us in Grosse Pointe! My daughter attends University of Michigan. So we took a road trip to Detroit for the day and a swing through Grosse Pointe so I could see it for the first time. Charming community on the lake. We decided to eat in GP before returning to Ann Arbor and found Red Crown on OpenTable. It was wonderful! The pretzel bites appetizer with pimiento cheese spread was a-MAY-zing. They had wonderful bottled root beer for my 20yo daughter. White Claw in a can for me. Dinner was outstanding, the wait staff friendly and professional, and the vibe is darling and family friendly. Loved eating in a restored old-school filling station. Highly recommend Red Crown. Looking forward to a future visit to Grosse Pointe.

I reserved a table for 2 on the patio. When we arrived we were given a small table in the walkway. When I asked for a larger table I was told that the 4 seat tables are saved for larger groups despite there were several couples at the other tables. Then they sat a couple that came in after us with no reservation at one of the tables! The service was horrible. I would have to ask 2-3 times for something. The total was $40 for 2 burgers with bacon and 2 pops. I won't be goong there again, this is not my first visit receiving poor service.

Red crown if great! High quality food and service in a relaxed environment . One issue that left me a bit confused was that I made the reservation through open table app, but when I arrived they told me they actually were not accepting reservations that night due to an event. They were able to seat me anyways because it was not that busy , so in the end it all worked out. I guess it is just better to call sometimes .

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

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.

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.
