Attended for dinner with 3 other couples prior to a concert at the KROCK centre. Ordered the "special" of stir fry over rice. Stir fry was bland and soggy, the few pieces of beef were tough and overcooked, and the portion size was ridiculously small. Thank goodness the beer was good. Stick with a burger in this place.

The first time I went I was slightly disappointed in the food but not enough to write a review. The second time the male server was unbelievably rude and the food was once again not very good. Btw dec 2015 is not the date I was there but I was unable to go back any further in time on this... More

Friendly staff and great service with nice atmosphere. Went on a concert night and were able to get a table without a reservation.

An excellent kitchen with a dedication to fresh, local food. Great selection of rotating craft beer. Amazing staff! Nothing fancy, but always delicious. For anyone too "old" for night clubs, but too young to stay in on the weekends, highly recommended.

This is a very friendly restaurant with great food.The service is excellent and the menu choices are extensive. I have eaten there for lunch and supper and spent some time in the evening enjoying the pub-style nightlife. I have never been disappointed. One of the better choices in dining in downtown Kingston.

This is a nice spot to grab a bite, have a cold beer, and watch the game or socialize with friends. The fish an chips were hand made, the fries were freshly cut, and the coleslaw was fantastic. I had a local brew. I would definitely go back.

Nice quaint place to eat. Pub style with good hamburgers and fries. The menu looks good but average. Didn't have a chance to try the beer but they had a great selection to choose from....my loss. Recommended if you want a pub style experience with good food.

We had dinner here and it was great. We had the flatbread, which had been recommended to us by a local from another restaurant - and we were very pleased, it was delicious. We also had the pork belly sandwich........ sooooooo good! It was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had.

On a busy Friday night, we tried the Red House for the first time. Staff was very friendly and efficient. We opted for a shared platter of meats, cheeses, olives, pickles, peppers, fruit etc. Was lots there, and then some to take home

Thank Gary H
