Enjoyed my first visit to the Red Mesa Grill! Our server was friendly, helpful with good suggestions after my questions and made sure to check back with water refills. The presentation of my Cobb Salad was amazing - and it tasted great!

Food was good but selection a little limited and the prices seemed on the high side. Excellent service. If you like tequila or margaritas this is your place.

This place is popular with locals and visiting skiers. So, it's a good value and a good meal. Everybody knows about this place in Boyne. It can be hard to get in. Absolutely need a reservation.
