The Red Hook name comes from our favorite marina in St. Thomas. Red Hook is where you can catch the ferry to St. John, charter a day sail or fishing trip. It also houses several restaurants and our favorite bar, Island Time Pub. We found ourselves hanging out there most nights on our recent trips to St. Thomas. Only fitting that we name our restaurant after our favorite place on the island. Our goal was to bring the island vibe and some of the food to Columbus. Most of the food in St Thomas is Americanized so Red Hook Grill’s menu is our interpretation. We hope you enjoy.

Very nice mix of vegan and Caribbean cuisine. Menu has both dishes. Potato skins with a seafood twist and deserts prepared in house. Bit noise, but food is worth it.

I do like the staff and service. But the food can be hit or miss sometimes. I think they may have changed chefs or recipes. We had to request two meals (mango chicken and pineapple boat) to be replaced with another menu item (burgers). The pita pizza was hard and there was an unknown brown seasoning on top which was unnecessary for a toddler. Also the tofu pita wrap wasn’t good, there was an unknown and unnecessary dark colored sauce, which caused the wrap to fall apart easily. I barely ate it and threw it out once I was home. Everyone enjoyed their well done burgers though and the alcoholic mixed drinks were great. I hate to complain or be negative but I have to be honest. I hope this helps. I want to be back.

Food and atmosphere were excellent. Really enjoyed being able to easily reserve a table online and know coming in that we'd have seating ready for us, simply because it's a smaller space. Host/owner/server were all incredibly nice/approachable but professional. I really enjoyed the drinks we had from the bar and I love the selections on the menu - it was hard to make a choice but that's all the more reason to plan our next visit. Thanks again, we'll be back soon.

Made a reservation for a business lunch. Waitress waited 15 minutes before taking our order (much too long). We ordered salads. We waited for an hour and no food. We asked the waitress to check on our food. No response. I bumped into the owner after using the washroom and asked about our meals. She apologized profusely and the food came out less than 5 minutes later. The waitress was a disaster. I hate saying this bc I used to waitress in college, but there is no excuse for not putting an order in - it's easy enough to check. On the plus side, the food was very good.

Our family visited because they have a great selection of options. Daughter is vegetarian and husband wants meat and potatoes! There was something to satisfy everyone!
They also have some fun Caribbean themed specialty cocktails and offer $1 off during happy hour! Yay!!
Service is attentive but not intrusive, and very friendly!
Prices are very reasonable.

I loved this restaurant. It was quiet and intimate, and had a varied menu. I chose the shrimp cake, and Kathy was unphased with requests for light spice and no bun. The sweet potatoes were perfectly cooked and the cinnamon dip that accompanied them was also very good. Everything was reasonably priced.

The only reason I have a 4 for ambiance is I had a preconceived notion of what the space would look like. It was also a bit cold when we arrived. I wish I could have taken a picture of my Pineapple Boat. Presentation was excellent. Taste was equal. With an 8 -year old and a restaurant myself, getting "adult only" evenings are rare. Thank God for Grandparents. I cannot remember the last time I have had a cocktail. The Caribbean Sunset was excellent and the Plantains were equally enjoyable. Pricing is more than fair for the meals and the area. Next time we can break away for an evening, we will return. Lots more on the menu I want to give a try.

I am so glad I decided on the jambalaya...with a side order of plantains (jerk seasoning not the brown sugar). Great combo. Want to go back to order other items on the menu. The place was packed on Saturday night...glad we made a reservation. It was noisy but OK. Can't wait to go back.

My husband got the tilapia stuffed with crab meat... it was amazing! I highly recommend it. I got the seared tuna. The cook was perfect however it didn’t come with any sort of sauce so it was bland. But overall the food was really good. The key lime pie is a must!!

I love this place. Fabulous every time. The owners and staff go out of their way to accommodate you. Fabulous service, excellent food. The salads are especially wonderful. There are some healthy choices, and some vegetarian choices, which is a godsend. The pineapple boat filled with pork and shrimp on rice was too spicy for me, but my date loved it. The noise level is very low, so you can actually have a great conversation.

Fun night out with friends on a cold snowy night. We all really enjoyed the island spices in the soup, jambalaya, and beans and rice. Only things to improve on were my brocolli was cold and mushy as a side w my mango chicken; and the potato skins really weren’t that great either- tough to chew and not much flavor there. But we had a fun time, the place was hoppin on a Sat night and the staff was very friendly and attentive. We will be back!

What a hidden gem that we just found! Four of us met for lunch and we each had something different: Clam/rice cakes, gumbo, smoked fish appetizer, spinach salad, rice and beans. We shared and it was all good. Nice wait staff. We all commented how nice it was to eat in a quiet restaurant where we could actually talk without shouting. We will be back. Thanks.

Dining with a friend who is vegan. It's difficult to find a place that gives both of us multiple options - not just a veggie burger and everything else is red meat. This was perfect. There were a number of items for each of us to choose from. I did end up with a burger only because it sounded so good and it lived up to it's description right down to the hot toasted bun.
