My husband and two boys go skiing in Red River and we always stop here after a day on the slopes. The servers are so much fun and the food is oh so yummy!

Closed, apparently this is now a clinic.....as far as I have heard there is no plan to reopen. Unfortunatly we took some guests up to Red River to eat there and found the signage gone and the place shuttered, which is too bad because I had heard the food was great there.

Closed! For sale sign on building. Signage removed. No mention of location change. We walked to the location from the Alpine Lodge. Ate at Capo's, which was good Italian food.

Black Diamond grill was excellent! We stopped in for lunch our first day skiing and had the Philly Cheesesteak, which was excellent!

Our waiter Alec was very personable and made great suggestions on food and things to do in town. Everyone in our party of nine enjoyed the food. The meatloaf got rave reviews at our table and the French fries are delicious.

"Under New Management" may dissuade people from entering on the outside of the sign and not wanting to part from their libations at The Lift next door may take it out of contention; but I'm telling you that I'm GLAD that the Red River Café grill closed at 1330, because we would have never have had the pleasure of eating...

Great Bar and grill at the base of the mountain. Smoked Chicken and Smoked Meatloaf sets the BAR on the menu. Daily specials are to die for ( be sure get through the door early) Service is a five easy. Can't miss on this restaurant !!!!
