Though the area might be more MAGA than not, I really don't need a dose of that after a decent meal. Left a very sour taste in my mouth...I wont be back or support any businesses that push that kind of hateful crap....... We tipped...20% from our values of rewarding work, but it was difficult.More

Not quite sure what you're referring to, what hateful crap? Though glad you had a decent meal and good service.

We had to wait a very long time to get a table cleaned and then even longer to order. The food was excellent however. We ate outdoors with a few other tables, and the inside was very crowded. They are greatly understaffed but manage to...pull it off.More

We come to Rangeley a couple time each year for skiing. We always order pizza from the Red Onion. Last night we arrived at 6:30 PM. I called to order and the woman who answered said that she'd ask to see if I could place...order. I was confused, but... When I picked up the pie, the restaurant was totally empty. Turns out that they closed at 6 PM, but took my order at 6:34 PM and let me pick it up at 7 PM. An hour after they had closed! That's the type of business I want to support. The food is really great too!More

We were visiting in Rangely this week and when we ordered pizza from the red onion we had low expectations because this is a bit of a touristy area. However we were very pleasantly surprised! We ordered a combo pizza and a pesto pizza with...sausage and spinach the ingredients were fresh and excellent quality and the pizza crust was perfection. We wish there was one in our neighborhood in Connecticut!More

They had so many gluten free options, which can be hard to find. They even had multiple dessert options! We went back again because the first time was so good!

We stopped at the red onion after a long drive from Philly. We ordered a pizza, chicken strips & poutine. Everything was delicious & didn’t call ahead to order which was no problem as they had everything ready in 20 minutes. Only complaint was the...portion size of the poutine which had really good gravy, we definitely should have gotten 2 orders.More

We ordered three large pizzas. One was Pepperoni and Mushroom, one was a meat lovers, and one Mediterranean. All of them were very good. The sauce they used was very flavorful. Pizzas were good size so there was plenty.

Staff was rude,we witnessed them argue over who was serving the table near us.After a 15 minute wait for our drink order we waited another 10 minutes for a plastic bottle of warm soda. We ordered fish and chips and a meatloaf dinner 30 minutes...later with no return visit from staff in between meatloaf was beyond awful 2 bites couldn't stand anymore mashed potatoes were box or something uneatable fish was dry greasy and bland french fries were flat dry and stale. The sign on the window states good home cooked meals there was no selection of home cooked meals no steak no chicken it was meatloaf, fish and chips lasagna or liver and onions everything else was pizza or sandwiches. Staff was quick to bring the check within 10 minutes of our meals being set on the table More discouraging was there were only 4 other tables seated in the entire place. We will never returnMore

Started excited about the menu. Husband and I ordered burgers. My husband's was so over cooked it was dry. Mine was perfect. The waitress apologized and offered a free soda. My husband did not eat his burger so I gave him half of mine. He...was not offered a new burger. We had to ask for her to take it off the bill. This just blew my mind that she saw us sharing my meal and all that she did was offered a free soda. My burgers was good.More

We stopped here for lunch. Ignore the signs that advertise homemade pizza dough. It most definitely did not taste homemade and was pretty tough as others have commented. However it was okay. Staff friendly and wear their masks when serving. Kitchen staff did not wear...their masks when walking through restaurant to leave, although they did not engage with anyone. Cursory wipe down of tables and no wipe down of chairs. No wipe down of menus that we saw. Restaurant is clean just needs to pay more attention with COVID.More

When you order hite pizza, order it from someone who knows how to make it, just a word of advice. Pizza was very thin , overcooked and had a hard time figuring out if it was white or not. Crust so hard could't eat it....Couldn't even tell if it had white chhese on it. Maybe other pizza was ok don't know, maybe just a bad day, who knows how the help situation is, but pizza was aweful. Have had white pizza from NYC to Rangeley nd this was the worst.More

The burgers are average but they do have a good many choices. Beware that if you order “just a burger” and add bacon and fries it will cost $14.48. If you order the “rustler “ and have them take off the sauce and onion rings...(fries come with this) it will coSt $10.99. You basically get the same burger.More
