The Red Bar has the best fish special on Friday's. You can substitute huge shrimp if you would prefer that over fish. The meal is huge and it's a great price.

The food is good,the price is nice and best of all the quantities are hefty. Great place to eat in with excellent take out / call in service as well. Did I say the staff is friendly? Oh yes they are. Check this place out!

Some of the best fish ever.... Great staff and love the outdoor patio.. While Fish Frys pop up everywhere during the Lent season, The Red Bar offers fish every Friday without fail. Very large portions as well as other items on the menu to choose from.

We've been going here every Wednesday to celebrate mid week for awhile. The dollar tacos are outstanding and some of the brews are $2. Cheap night out on a budget. Can't beat it!

The prices are reasonable and there is a outdoor seating area making it a nice place to meet up with friends. The food is good for bar food, but the majority of the menu is deep fried. The outdoor seating lacks in service and it is quicker to go to the bar and order.

Almost everything goes into the deep fryer. You'd be an idiot to eat here if you were trying to lose weight. The portions are HUGE; everything on the menu is super-sized. The food is delicious; I've eaten here a few times now and have yet to have a bad dish. For being bar food, it's actually really good quality. The... More

We love their food. The service can be iffy at times, especially at lunch. We stopped going at lunch because it takes too long.

Amazing flavor in their deep fried hot dogs. Portions are huge and you have to try the tater tots. Specials during the week and great cod fish on Friday's.
