We had dinner there 3/4/17. The scampi was good. The $36 ribeye was thin, tough, & dry. It's a small area so you expect over-priced wine and the food to be on the expensive side but the quality was terrible. Don't try it!

My friend and I shared the fish tacos and shrimp flatbread and LOVED it! Husbands had burgers which they thought were "fine". Fish & Chips looked good which many other customers seemed to be ordering. All in all worth a try.

Although we live quite close to Red Onion, we don't eat there very often, basically only for special occasions, but the food is heavenly, the service great and we love eating out doors on the deck!

Bought a place in Almanor three years ago and have spent each New Years Eve having dinner at the Onion. Great service, great food and a nice "local" type bar. The menu is not huge, but it doesn't have to be. Good variety of craft...More
