“Good stuff...”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

This was our first visit to a Red Robin... they are doing a lot of things right. It's a friendly place, a bit "trendy" with a bit of a sports bar atmosphere. We came for the food. The riblets were great. I would not, however, recommend the mac/cheese. Basically, they cook up some plain mac, throw some cheese on top and either bake or microwave turning into a rubbery mess. DW had seafood and was quite pleased... This is not a cheap place if you order drinks... a margarita was sent back (and we weren't charged for it)--the waitress admitted they are "pretty bad" because of the mix used. We didn't order dessert and our tab came to over $50 with the tip--over a third of that being for two 22 ounce beers. We'll probably visit again and would love to try a burger--it appears they do some things extremely well and somethings not so much!

“Interesting Burgers and More”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Red Robin is the place we go for burgers, fish and chips, and interesting appetizers. Even if there's a wait, it's never for very long.
We're greeted as the door is opened for us, and people at the host stand are friendly. The new menu has many of the old-time favorites as well as some new items that could quickly become favorites.
Servers are friendly and patient, and knowledgeable of the menu. During most visits, the manager will come to each table to assure that things are going well.
Meals come with several choices of sides, some with an upcharge. The regular sides, such as fries, side salad, and coleslaw, have unlimited refills.
On several occasions, the Ziosk at our table was not working correctly, which slowed things a bit.

“Quick good food”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

I often will order take out from this Red Robin's. Service is good and is ready when they say it will be. They are very friendly and the food is always done as ordered.

I have eaten here also and the same applies. Good food, good variety on the menu so even picky eaters can find something to eat.

“Worst service ever”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Manager was our server since none of the wait staff bothered. No one had a clue almost every table around us had a mistake on their bill. Seems like no one in this place has any training on how to work there. If this is the best this chain can do they will do without my business from now on.
