The Red House has a good easygoing atmosphere that's good for a drink or some good food. They offer craft beers, cocktails, and American food. Open for lunch on the weekends and dinner during the week. They have live music as well. It's a good place for couples, friends, or for larger groups. The prices are fair and the food... More

We loved this cute restaurant in the middle of Deep River CT. We met our friends from RI and this place is about half way drive for both of us! The interior was very nicely designed with many beautiful prints of famous early rock stars and musicians. The bread basket had cornbread and another homemade bread that was really tasty,... More

A group of 8 of us descended, hungry and cold for a Saturday lunch. The waiter was friendly and very knowledgeable. I have food allergies, and there was no problem adapting the mussel dish to make a delish entre for me! Decor is very cool, too. We love this place for lunch or dinner.

Both the tuna (very fresh) appetizer and mussels were outstanding! We sat at the bar and enjoyed the eclectic crowd and pleasing bartender. Service was great ..we will be back soon to try more of the creative menu as the dishes around us looked very pleasing.

If you happen to be driving to Newport, RI from NE Pennsylvania and looking for a place to have lunch-look no further!! They have craft beer!, I shouted to my husband as we drove along. That sealed the deal for us, as it was our first official day of vacation. It is an adorable place, easy parking, wonderfully friendly staff,... More

Tried Red House with a group of seven family members last week end. I tried the brick pressed boneless chicken, which was excellent. Pan seared with fresh spinach and potato, drizzled with balsamic glaze. Also tried the mac and cheese. Spicy and decadently delicious. Rich and gooey, served in an iron skillet. Nearly everyone had a different dish and were... More

We loved this place. First timers. We live in Essex but drive by here a lot, and finally decided to try it. Will definitely be back. Jordan our server was great. I had the open face short rib sandwich w fries, my husband had the fish tacos. Both were really tasty and the price is right.

Out for an evening drive and just happened on this place. The braised short ribs were to die for and my husbands ribs were excellent! For an appetizer we had the fried Brussels sprouts with blue cheese and apple... fantastic! Can't wait to go back! Thanks Gary for fabulous service and recommendations!
