For what you get, which is basic American style food, it’s pricey. Dark and noisy, nice for a date, but not for everyday eating

Solid place to get some typical food at a more classy place (dressing up isn’t out of place, but you’re certainly not required to). Solid food quality, but slightly lacking in options on the menu. Service was a little slow. The restaurant is pretty dark and a bit loud. We arrived slightly outside of the 15-minute grace period after our reservation, but we were informed so and seated within five minutes after arrival, which is pretty good for 5:30 on a Saturday night. Would go again, I would just get there earlier to allow for traffic getting into the parking garages.

The experience was great! We had a party of six, but was seated at a small both to fit all. It was very tight to get all of our food on the table and eat comfortably.

Outside of that, the service and food was great!

Eric was our server and he was professional, informed and friendly. Jose the bartender also a great member of your team. Food and beverages were very good, better than I remember from our first visit over a year ago. Hostess staff seam disjointed and not organized as it took a long time to be seated. They should have tables blocked and be ready to seat reservations as they arrive? Thanking the guests for coming and for making a reservation? Overall a good dinner experience, even the manger came by checking on us well. well done! look forward to our next visit when the weather is warmer and the patio bar is open!

Well, the waiter was good...Two of us ordered chicken and ribs, came out not even lukewarm. The second order the same. The third order of ribs came out, no chicken or side. At least the ribs were warm this time. Wife ordered ribeye, prime rib came out. They replaced the ordered medium rare ribeye with a overcooked ribeye. Her next plate came out and was not worth the $. The drinks and salad was the only thing we paid for. Even one of the managers treated these issues with a rude, not caring attitude. Won’t be going back. Not worth the $. Sad, the locations and view was nice.

This was the first time I’ve been and Redstone was packed. The service wasn’t the best and neither was the food. I get the same thing every time I go but my food was quite underwhelming. I was very disappointed. I think I’ll stick to early weekend or going on weekdays.

I went to Redstone on a Saturday evening. I got there about 5 minutes after my reservation time, but the hosts had us wait for about 10 minutes for a table. The waiting area was a little busy, but I've seen it busier. Once our table was ready, we were seated in a booth right near the noisy bar close to the entrance. It took our waiter about 10 minutes to finally take our drink orders. We ordered the cornbread skillet, which was good. My boyfriend ordered the crab mac and cheese ($26.00) and had to pay $2 extra for a vegetable side. It was a very small bowl of mac and cheese, not worth $26.00. My $15.00 turkey burger was dry and flavorless. The only thing that made it good was the sauce. The fries were cold and stale. My boyfriend's parents ordered a $30 meal with ribs and their "famous" rotisserie chicken. They complained that the chicken had absolutely no flavor. I tried a piece of their chicken and it was so dry and flavorless. Our waiter would disappear for a long time and then we would request something and he would take forever to come back with what we requested. I used to come here a few years ago and the food was always great! This time, it was clear that the quality of food and service has had a steep decline. I will be searching for a different restaurant when I visit the Harbor from now on.

My friend and I went for Restaurant Week and it was off putting that neither the host nor our server mentioned it. My friend eventually asked and was then given only one menu even though it was more than one person at the table. This type of behavior doesn’t sit well with me and I would be hesitant to recommend base on service. Food was very delicious though.

We had horrible service. It was a busy Saturday evening, so we weren’t expecting a quick meal at all and we were in no hurry. After ordering an appetizer, it was delivered, but with no plates. After asking, they finally came 20 minutes later. Only 3 of our 4 entrees were served to us, but we were charged for all 4. We also ordered 2 cocktails that we never received and were charged for. Our waiter and management seemed annoyed when we asked to have the charges for items not received removed from our bill. It was a shame because the food and ambiance were great, but the service was unprofessional and slow.

After a bad experience during brunch, a few family members and myself decided to give Redstone another try for Restaurant Week. The experience was once again disappointing. Our appetizers came out cold, and had to be sent back. The entrees were fine, but the desserts were less than impressive and very basic. The apple crisp was dry and the berry dessert had a scone like pastry that was way too hard. That was our last visit to Redstone.

I would recommend Redstone American Grill to a friend. I've eaten there three times since summer 2018. Twice I've had the crab cakes, fries, cornbread with maple butter, and the warm chocolate chip cookie sundae. All were delicious and meant to be savored. On my third visit, which was during Restaurant Week in Jan 2019, I had the baked crab dip, the Redstone burger (my sister recommended it) and the warm chocolate chip cookie sundae. During Restaurant Week when you can order certain foods at discounted prices, I felt the portion sizes were reasonable for the prices. I just wish I could have had more of the chocolate chip cookie sundae, since my friend and I had to split one scoop of ice cream.

My criticism of Redstone concerns the service. While servers, the wait staff, and others were friendly and helpful, the service was very slow the last two times I ate there, including during the Restaurant Week visit. My friend and I went in the early afternoon, and while there were other diners, the restaurant wasn't crowded. It should not have taken the wait staff 20 minutes (minimum) to bring out appetizers. When we finally received our appetizers after asking about them, we were served the main course right behind the appetizers. The employees need to get a handle on why service is so slow, especially when the restaurant is not crowded.

I plan to eat at Redstone again to make sure the crab cake is as good as I remembered it being the first time I ate it (the second time it was a little different like maybe it contained filler). I also would return just for the chocolate chip cookie sundae.

My mom and I tried this out for Restaurant week! The menu was appealing, that is why we chose to come. We came for the lunch. Our appetizers were really good, but they took 30 min to come out! That was quite ridiculous, and then our salads followed like 5 min later. I wasn’t impressed with the salad because it seemed it had been pre tossed and put to the side waiting for someone to order it. I’m mainly making this assumption because the croutons were so darn soggy! The flavors in the salad sounded good, but I just don’t think the salad was executed that well as a whole . The service was average.

I would try this restaurant again because I saw quite a few things on the main menu that sounded great, and the brunch menu sounded great too!

Came here for dinner during a business conference. I was surprised it wasn't busier and we were glad that we could hear each other during our conversation. The food was delicious and our server Sloan was fantastic! The bang-bang cauliflower was outstanding too-you have to try it! Honestly I could have eaten that as my dinner.

It seems like finding good service is getting harder and harder. That is NOT the case with Redstone. Our server, Sierra was excellent. She was attentive and very knowledgeable. She made great recommendations to us for food and knew exactly which wine to pair it with.

The manager was also very friendly and came over to ask us how everything was. We also witnessed him stop a food runner and send him back to the kitchen because a dish was not plated correctly.

I think area restaurant managers should take a trip to Redstone to see how it SHOULD BE done. This place is on point with their service.
