Really BIG servings. We shared a meal and still had leftovers. Most food homemade. We had a strong de salad. It was Hughes and we brought home half. Also the meatloaf dinner. 3 slices of tasty meatloaf, potatoes and great baby carrots. Brought home at least half of that too.

I took a bunch of kids and another adult for a late breakfast. There was something for everyone and all the food was fabulous! A few of us had lunch and others had breakfast. Busy rustic looking restaurant with very friendly staff. We called ahead for seating as this place is usually busy.

I took my motorcycle group to Red's today for lunch. I called ahead of time to let them know we were coming. We arrived on time and when we walked in the door we were immediately seated and drink orders were taken. In no time our drinks were on the table and the waitress was taking our food order. Within...

My family and I have been frequenting this establishment for over 6yrs. The food is consistently great with large portions. The staff is like family and very accommodating. There usually is a wait but they do take call a heads. Family owned and operated small business that is definitely a must try! If you want a homestyle meal this is... More

Reds is open for breakfast and lunch. They close at 2:00 pm and are closed all day Monday. Their breakfasts are very popular. Unless you are starving, you can order the two pancake breakfast rather than the three. They are huge. Their portions are very adequate. We often take out of town guests here for breakfast. I recommend the Eggs... More

Went for a 10am breakfast on a Saturday with a group of 10. No problem on seating altogether with a call ahead. Food was excellent, as was the service, as was the portions. I ate breakfast like a King for less then $10, including coffee, and plenty of it.

We dine at Reds periodically, but mostly for breakfast/brunch. A favorite spot especially when we have out of town guests. The restaurant is rustic and clean. Service is excellent. Food is beyond expectation. Its a bit remote but well worth the trip.

Thank Peyecat
