Since 1989, Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill has been a favorite Bristol restaurant, serving eclectic fare with a European flair. We pride ourselves on being a small town European style restaurant which draws the best from several countries. German food is the primary focus, with the best Wiener Schnitzel of any Rhode Island restaurant. Wonderful German beer and Belgian beer also grace our authentic porcelain beer towers. For those who are not looking for a German dinning experience we also feature several Italian and French dishes and even a Portuguese little neck appetizer since we are in Bristol. For New Englanders our fish is fresh and local. So you can enjoy fresh fried sole, instead of frozen fish and chips. Overlooking the water front at Independence park, and in the heart of downtown Bristol, Rhode Island, Redlefsen's is comfortably elegant. Whether you sit in our dining room, the lounge, or the function room.

Redlefsen's Ratings and Reviews
Went for New Year's Eve - was sort of a quiet setting - but was bitterly cold! Food was good as always - but just did not have the same feel as other times. Our server was ok, not really enthusiastic or accommodating. My daughter had requested Chicken piccata instead of Cod piccata (has been happily done in the past), and our server was sort of like, yeah...no. So, we were a bit disappointed with that. Was not crowded, and our seating felt a bit cramped. Still a great place to dine - but may give it a rest for a bit.
We had an earlier reservation, but had to delay because of traffic and other commitments with guests. The OpenTable allowed me to switch in seconds. We arrived and had a lovely evening in the bar area which was very cozy by the fire. Good food and service was excellent
This was our first visit to Redlefsen's, and it certainly won't be our last. Service was excellent from the moment we entered the restaurant (friendly and attentive). and the food was delicious. They also have a great beer selection (mainly German draft beers, but also a variety of other European and domestic beers).
Being during Octoberfest we went for their German menu items and the everything except dessert was really good, hit the spot. They really need to think about changing up who does their baking - blackforest cake was dry, jelly like cherry pie filling, frosting tasted like butter. Apple strudel just not the top notch one should expect from a German restaurant
We always get the schnitzel. It has always been five star, but this time it was a little off. The pork was a little tough and the veal was a little thick. I hope this review helps to get one of our favorite places back to five stars. Service was great as usual.
We had a lovely Sunday evening meal seated at a quiet table. The Red Salad was the perfect starter to our dinner. It is slightly sweet with dried cherries and sliced pears. My husband had the traditional German Goulash which he always enjoys. I had the shrimp scampi. Always a favorite of mine. This is a very nice restaurant with a friendly and attentive staff. Definitely a favorite of our family!
We have been wanting to try this place for awhile & had a college friend coming into town so figured it would be a nice treat. We are so happy we finally went. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. We each tried a different dish and everything tasted phenomenal. We saved room for dessert, german chocolate cake and apple strudel, yummy!!!
They have an outdoor patio which was great as you can see the water/boats. Inside looked very nice, lots of space.
Be sure to check out the cute Bristol shops and waterfront.
I cannot wait to go back!!!!
Beer was good. My expectations were high as I lived in Germany for 3 years and love the food. Was obvious that much of the food was pre-made. Sausage platter brats had no taste at all. Sauerbraten was bland like maybe it had freezer burn and had no seasoning or flavor. Drastically over priced for the quality. Nice place though and the service was ok.
First time at this restaurant which has been suggested to us. Very enjoyable experience. Very good authentic food, in a casual atmosphere, in a nice location to take a post meal walk. Service was a bit "casual", but young lady was very pleasant to make up for it (kind of). We will return.
Never been here for an al fresco lunch. We have enjoyed notable dinners here, for many years, but this was our first lunch, and out on the veranda, also a first. Wonderful view of the water, and the adjoining park. The lunch offering were every bit as delicious as the dinner fare. We'll be back before the seasons over.
