Had visited the Red Hawk many years ago. The place was packed and had a great vibe. When we visited this week, the place was almost empty. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good and cooked as we ordered. The Chicken Sope was light on the chicken and beans and covered with too much shredded lettuce. Our entrée sandwiches... More

I guess if you like that worn out feel of an old restaurant that once was, this is your place. Everyone, everything is tired. We've been dining at Red Hawk for years and I mean, years. At one time, they forged the dining path, offering creative options and comfort classics. This was a relatively quiet time in A2 restaurant history... More

Came for dinner after a 3:30 kick off game at The Big House. Good selection of craft beer & great cocktails. Food consistently good, though service got a bit slow when it got really busy after the game. Would recommend & will return.

Maybe their alcohol selection is better than their food and service, but that would have to be their redeeming factor. The food here isn't as good as any of the other places a few hundred feet away, and it's more expensive to boot. The inside is also weirdly cramped for a pretty spacious restaurant, so I wouldn't recommend coming in... More

We love the atmosphere of the Red Hawk and it was nice again on this post-game Saturday at UM. We split our entree as usual and it was just enough. Their draft beer is good and a quick trip to an ice cream place nearby is worth it.

Red Hawk is a campus pub that is consistently good. Nice beer list. The appetizers and sandwiches are good..great burgers including a good lamb burger. There are plenty of selections for vegetarians too. They always have a few specials on the menu that are generally interesting. Service is usually good and the place is usually crowded.

Not my favorite atmosphere and management can be a little rude at times if people are not "properly" seated at a table. Food = average.

Had plenty of time to eat before Michigan-Penn State football game and we arrived just as they were opening. Great college town atmosphere. Service was friendly and impeccable. Really enjoyed their version of a Cuban sandwich; varied menu with lots of great choices it was difficult to decide what to have.Owner was very attentive with staff and on the way... More

Good food, nice atmosphere for a beer and a bite to eat. Chips and guacamole were good. Restaurant was clean, easy to get to.
