This place used to be really fine, but since the owner's wife gave up working in the kitchen it has been all downhill. It seems to get a big crowd of revelers for Octoberfest, but if you value your health, stay away from any of...More

I am so sorry this happened Joe. Could you tell me what day this was. I would really like to address this with the staff, but I would like to know if it was lunch or dinner and what day of the week.

What a great place. German food and drinks with a Rhode Island twist in the menu. If you are looking for a great meal and a cold beer, here is your place.

Description
Redlefsen's is a German - American Restaurant which celebrates it's German heritage while allowing a percentage of its menu to satisfy other worldly palates. The porcelain beer towers pour German drafts in proper glassware, including das boot. The schnitzels and sauerbraten are as authentic as if you were in Bavaria. But if someone in your group must have calamari, Redlefsen's will be able to provide one of the best in the State.
