Tried this cute, quaint barbecue restaurant out for a casual date night! Food had good flavor. If you’re really into cornbread and classic bbq sides, this may disappoint. Mac and cheese was basic, mashed potatoes were nice and buttery, cornbread was served as the tiniest mini muffin I’ve ever seen. Cute, but not super flavorful or special. This is definitely a neighborhood/local place where people seem to know each other. It was nice to try something different.

This is a fun restaurant with a lot of atmosphere located in an old service station. Menu is bbq based. The evening we visited, we had the best service. Our server was very attentive returning often to inquire to our needs. She took the time to answer all of our questions regarding menu items providing recommendations on both drinks and food. Standout menu items were the appetizer prawns, spare ribs and the seasonal meatloaf entrée. We were disappointed with the pulled pork entrée. Being a bbq joint, this should be one of their standout items. It was not. The pulled pork was served already sauced which prevents you from trying their house sauces. It reminded me of the pulled pork you buy in the foil trays from Sams Club. Not that there's anything wrong with the Sams Club pulled pork, I just expect pulled pork from a bbq joint to be better. Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience and I would definitely visit again.

Our server was great and the food was tasty, but the meat in my sandwich was lukewarm at best, which detracted from the experience. Our apps were piping hot though.

We love Red Crown. It's a great addition to the West Park area. You're almost guaranteed to run into someone you know, giving it that feel-good "Cheers" environment, but with amazing food and fun cocktails. The draft selection is great, too. Overall we give Red Crown 2 thumbs up!

Not your usual restaurant menu. Lots of interesting entrees offered. The calamari was excellent. Our entrees were generous portions and delicious. The service was quite good and the prices were very reasonable. I will definitely be back and will bring more friends.

Great atmosphere. I had fish and chips . Fish was heavily battered . Not my thing. Fries are awesome ! Another friend had brisket. Was a little tough for brisket. Other friends had salmon and steak . Both very good. Pretzels and pimento cheese awesome ! I would go back ,but order something different.

I had read some reviews that were both pro and con about Red Crown so I wasn't 100% sure this was the place to try. Overall, the experience was quite positive. The Mule drinks were terrific. The Duck Tots and Fried Pickles were delicious, and the Burnt ends and the Chicken Wings all were very good. My friend ordered the brisket and it disappeared very quickly, so I would say that was a positive. I liked the ambiance being in an old gas station. It was a bit drafty by the front windows, but after my second cocktail, I didn't notice it as much! Was it outstanding? Maybe not, but there is certainly enough solid choices on the menu and the service was welcoming enough, that I would return.

I loved this restaurant- a very fun atmosphere. The food is exceptional. The one thing I didn't like was how tight the seating is but considering it's an old gas station , the seating is expected. Looking forward to going there when we can sit outside.

We had a great time celebrating my grandfathers 92nd birthday here! Bridgette was an awesome waitress and the food was incredible. My husband got the chicken and waffles and love it. I got the grits. They were really rice and totally delicious! The bottomless mimosas were awesome too.

Food was ok ordered the pretzel appetizer and pretzels were ice cold. Didn't make a big deal about it . I ordered baby back ribs and they came out just like they came out of the freezer. I sent those back and they warmed them but by then my wife was almost done with her brisket which also came out luke warm. Sides were all great and it's a cool place but kitchen needs some help

My mom and I came here after she saw a food story on Fox 2 highlighting your "Shrimp and Grits". I am African American and I have grown up on southern cuisine. You list this under "Southern" fare, however you served us COLD, cocktail shrimp on top of a really strange concoction of grits and red sauce. It looked and smelled disgusting. It was literally cocktail shrimp - w/ one lone shrimp with a single char mark as if it was attempted to be grilled. We obviously complained to our server who offered us a new meal. The server was clueless, however the manager agreed it was not cooked properly. Only because we were starving and already there; we both ordered new meals. I honestly think you all need to remove this from the menu - it is an embarrassing attempt at southern cuisine. Further, the Det News was also there covering a story and asked our opinion and I was honest stating that the beer, muffins, chili and Burger I ordered all more than made up for the awful "Shrimp & Grits", boasted as your specialty dish.

This is a nice restaurant with a little bit for everyone. We were celebrating a family member's success in a choir performance, which included a few seniors. Everyone enjoyed it and mentioned that they would like to return.

I have not had a bad or even marginal experience yet! Keep up the great work and great food!

Good Red Crown 1/2# burgers. 2 person BBQ Sampler was adequate but nothing to write home about. Garlic Aoli didn't excite us. Restaurant was not crowded. Service was OK - most people were outside on the nice patio - we opted to eat indoors. Had to chase down waiter to provide dinner plates / silverware for the sampler tray. For a meal that exceeded $22 per person before tip, there was no WOW factor. Will return but there's no rush.

We made reservations and were sat down right away. We selected the Southern Sampler for 2, so that we could try everything. We weren't in a hurry, but our food took a long time to come out, and when it finally arrived, it was all cold. Our server quickly took care of the issues with her manager, who replaced everything quickly. We enjoyed our time having drinks on the patio and liked the location, but the food was just okay.

Friendly service and knowledgeable staff. We opted for the $20 bottomless mimosas, and for our meals, the chicken and waffles and the Monte Cristo waffles for brunch! Everything was amazing! The mimosas were "heavy" on the champagne and quite delicious! Such a cute place!

We went Red Crown because for its ability to satisfy all range of tastes and ages. It did not disappoint. The barbecue was lovely, we had three different types . The charcuterie board was perfect before, satisfing everyone with its varied fare. We were seated in the bar area which worked wonderfully . We had our own little corner . My 85 year old father was able to hear , which was quite a feat. Great waitstaff, great time had by all!

Unfortunately, the food was of very poor quality. We ordered the southern combo meat platter for 2, and salmon platter. Both were quite upsetting in terms of quality. The ribs were overcooked and dry. The corn bread was mass produced nuggets and very dry. The salmon platter was just generally unpleasant tasting and poorly presented. We were initially given incorrect drinks. The neighbouring table to us was also quite verbal about how poor quality their food was as well.
