Red River was deserted so we were pleased to find a place open. Our trout was mild and filleted well. Just what you expect in Red River.

I've ate here several times, Brett has a great menu but there's always something seasonal he has going. Wait staff is great, they get busy but do their best to accommodate everyone. Their Ribeye is cooked to perfection every time.
