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.

Charming little family place with delicious food and drinks, and nice portions. They were very accommodating to my requests, and service was outstanding. The prices are more than reasonable, and we will definitely go back!

Small restaurant with good food and great service! Not as much of an island ambiance as I expected.

Great food! We have been there several times now and each time it gets better. I enjoy their specials and especially enjoy the the red hook salad.

This is our 3rd trip and some carry out in between. My friends and I have now made this one of “our spots.” The food is always delicious and the service is friendly and helpful.

Great Painkillers and cajun mac and cheese.
We love the wonderful snarky waiter too, he's the highlight of our visit, lol.

We came to Red Hook to celebrate national restaurant week and try a new experience. The service was excellent the waitress very friendly and the food was really good. A little on the noisy side. My only concern was the heat it was horribly hot outside and I’m sure they had a difficult time keeping the space cool and comfortable.

Food was served quickly and it was hot. I had tilapia with crab meat, it was delicious the roasted potatoes were also excellent and very tasty. Keylime pie for dessert —perfect!

This is a small and intimate place. The outside doesn’t really show what this place is all about. It’s a great atmosphere inside and worth every penny. The food is wonderful with all kinds of variance.

I was tasked to taking my girlfriend out for a (long overdue) date night. She is vegan and we both are in the service industry, so we try new places but also like places where we don't have to modify too much. Everything from the cocktails to our dessert was phenomenal. We had the veggie skins, hummus, AND Red Hook salad (no cheese) to start. Then moved on to the veggie jambalaya and tofu bowl. Each entree had such warm flavors to it. Just when I thought I was stuffed and completely satisfied, our sweet tooths caved for the fried plantains. We cleaned the plate. When we got the check, I was astonished at how reasonable our meal was. On top of everything, our server (owner, possibly?) was attentive, helpful, and just wonderful for our night out. We talked about this meal for two days and cannot wait to go back and try the jerk rubbed plantains!

Comfort food with a twist. That’s how I’d describe Red Hook Grill, which serves mostly seafood dishes with a Caribbean flavor. Three of us were there for the first time recently and ordered three different entrees. We all raved about our food. The servings are generous and the service is friendly and prompt. If there’s a negative it’s that the space and the tables are small, making it crowded for two to sit on the same side of a table. We all agreed Red Hook is worth a return visit.

Wonderful food and outstanding service! Offbeat location was easy to find with plenty of parking. We had the tuna (grilled perfectly) and crab stuffed tilapia - both were excellent; the broccoli was cooked perfectly and the house-special potatoes were crispy and delicious. Our daughter loved the Mac and Cheese with Andouille sausage, said it was the best she’d ever had! We will definitely return when we are in town again.

Our experience at the Red Hook Grill was excellent. Our meals were delicious. If you like a little "spice", the jambalaya is great!! The service was spot on...attentive, but not intrusive. Two of the people in our group were hearing impaired. We were kindly seated at a table away from others allowing us to have a nice conversation with minimal background distractions and noise. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant!!

Amazing food- I got the Cajun pasta and it’s the right amount of spicy and all around delicious. I also got the Pain Killer (a drink) and I would highly recommend. We had a lovely waitress with great service and we got our food quickly. We’re planning on returning ASAP (:

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.
