“Relaxed Fine Dining”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Can't think of anywhere else I have been that provides a better relaxed fine dining experience like The Red Pump. The Chef will happily alter the menu choices for dietary needs, the ambience is second to none inside and on all of the patios.

The staff aim to please all who walk through the door and accomplish this with smiles. A most pleasant place to dine!

“Welcome changes at the Red Pump”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

dining this year at the Red Pump was extremely pleasant and the new decor wonderful. Two menus gave us the option of fine dining or a bistro experience...we chose the bistro and received great value for our money....we will return for sure

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We thought we would enjoy a nice lunch... From what was supposed to be fresh mussels.. To the worst... And the crab cakes full of curry and the she swan chicken salad very disappointing.... Overall a very bad experience.. The waiter was not very receptive to our concerns and when we asked for a bit of bread he....says we don't do that lunch but you can order off the lunch menu a bread bun.... At 3$. Instead he brings us 2 stale rolls... Yup all good
Not a chance I will be back
Oh and we sat outside... And didn't even clean our table to begin with.. Flies etc... Wtf

“Good food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We were travelling through Bayfield on business and sightseeing and antiquing at the same time. We were quite impressed with the town and wandered through on foot visiting every store that was open. We stopped at the Red Pump restaurant for dinner. It was mid week and post-Labor Day, so everything was pretty quiet. We had a nice window seat overlooking the street and we were the only customers in the dining room, so service was excellent! Our dinners were nicely done and well presented. The vegetables seemed especially fresh and our desert was very rich and sinful. Our server was quite pleasant and helpful, and the dining room sets a nice ambiance for fine dining. The price was about right for the meal and service we received. We recommend this restaurant.
